54 Comments for The Many Faces Of Roger Federer

Ben Pronin Says:

That motorcycle one, wow. He’s almost unrecognizable.


volley Says:

those put me off my tea.


Hippy Chic Says:

The baby picture is cute,the shirtless one would be nice,as he has a nice body,but with that cowboy hat he looks one of the village people,the least said the better about the one on the motorcycle,however its nice to see the fun side of these players coming through,and pleased to say he cleans up pretty well these days.


Giles Says:

“Back in the day” he was quite a sweet looking kid but as the years rolled by ….. I must admit he put me off my tea as well!! Lol


rafaeli Says:

I often wonder why I never took to Roger, it’s all so clear now.


Ken13 Says:

I think these were pictures chosen by fans, not federer himself? But anyway all in fun.


RZ Says:

These are fun. Nice to know that Fed doesn’t take himself too seriously.


Okiegal Says:

He apparently went to the beauty salon to get his hair bleached. However, it looks like he did this himself. LOL Don’t know if Mirka was in the picture at that time of his life or not, but he looks very young. Some of these pix are a hoot and if I were Roger I try to find the culprit who posted them, especially the motor cycle one!! Funny!!


Humble Rafa Says:

I have remained the same for 15 years. An accomplishment in itself.


Carol O'Connell Says:

He’s just gorgeous.xx


Perfect fan Says:

Nice collection of pics….loved it :) the superhero morphed pic is d only odd one….otherwise a great collection.


metan Says:

Hahahaha, love Roger with his long hair. Wild N Hot hunk!. 😍😍😍😜😜


skeezer Says:

“I have remained the same for 15 years. An accomplishment in itself.”
NOT.
Read carefully.

What about those Pirate pants?


Giles Says:

The cowboy pic must be the worst. Not surprised Armani didn’t choose him as their model!
#HairyChest


Hippy Chic Says:

Rogers not my type really his looks dont make me swoon,that said hes handsome,with good looks and a nice body,and he always looks nicely turned out,nothing wrong with a hairy chest either,many of the worlds sexiest men have hairy chests,all a matter of preferance though i suppose.


Perfect fan Says:

As a matter of fact, I too feel roger is not someone who will make girls go weak at their knees….definitely good looking but not Hot. I personally had found two men very sexy at their times…..Marat Safin n Bjorn Borg, but poles apart nature wise. One is a volatile hot headed brute, n the other a cool as ice n a nice humble person…..but nonetheless, both very handsome men.


skeezer Says:

Giles,
You must not like hairy chests. Every real man has one. Better twit Rafa and tell him to keep shavin his forest like he does.
#piratepants?


Giles Says:

^^^ Hahaha! Touchy much!
#BringBackPiratePants
#BringBackSleevelessTees


Okiegal Says:

@Skeezer

Okiegal likes a little hair on the chest……but not the back…..or the nose…..or the ears and definitely a big nix on the unibrow!! LOL
Have a nice day!!


skeezer Says:

Okiegal,

nix on the unibrow, lol ;)


SG1 Says:

If nothing else, Roger can laugh at himself which is a good quality.


Okiegal Says:

@Skeezer

Let it be known to the world…….we actually agree on something!!! LOL


dari Says:

Giles, I have not commented on any Fed-hate posts of yours cause I don’t really care, but dissing a hairy chest?! That’s just odd. He’s a man what do you expect?!


Hippy Chic Says:

Perfect Fan i would say Fabio Fognini is the hottest player on tour,although theres plenty to choose from in that department,and i cannot disagree with your choices either lol,BTW i are you male or female,i always thought you were male for some reason,sorry just wondering?


Brando Says:

Wow, Fed’s appearance has changed so much over the years hasn’t it?

Time flies.

LOL @ the gelled up 90′s!

Rocking that Eurotrash look lol!


Hippy Chic Says:

I have never understood the facination that women have for David Beckham,much like our Colin thinks about Sharapova,in that their looks are vastly overated.


Hippy Chic Says:

Roger has certainly got our girl Metans seal of aproval in the looks department ;))..


Purcell Says:

Did Roger put this up? Difficult to say but it does seem typical of his daft, dorky, loveable persona.
Rafaeli, it’s obvious where your affections are concentrated but in response to your comment let’s remember that a good proportion of us find it difficult to get excited about someone with a bottom of Kardashian proportions, a sweat habit akin to recent UK rainfall and an inability to look good in a suit.
Volley and Giles…..enjoy your tea but please avoid beans on toast. There’s enough hot air around here.


Brando Says:

^LMAO: I love it when fans get defensive over their fav’s and start trading some inventive barbs.

Keep the good stuff coming.

Avoid the beans on toast- LMFAO!


skeezer Says:

“LMAO: I love it when fans get defensive over their fav’s and start trading some inventive barbs.”

Yep, lol,….U should know!


Perfect fan Says:

Chic, can’t a man admire another man’s charms n suaveness, then wat made u think that I need to be a woman to appreciate a man’s good looks…..u naughty girl ;))

jokes apart, I personally feel that men look attractive not necessarily by looks but how do they conduct themselves, esp. how do they behave with women. A man can be handsome, good to fantasize….but a man with good nature is overall very attractive and with that if he has good looks, then nothing like that…..well, just MPO.


Hippy Chic Says:

Pefect Fan cant a man admire another mans charms n suavness?absolutely,and as a woman i do exactly the same myself,wow she looks stunning,she looks hot etc,its nice that we can compliment each other,much nicer and better than throwing insults,and i particulaly liked the last paragraph of your post,i dont know you personally but you sound so nice you could be describing yourself ;))..


Hippy Chic Says:

Purcell i have seen many pictures of Rafa in a suit,and he cleans up very nicely,but then again thats JMO,and some people cannot help sweating i have overative thyroid glands that make me sweat alot,thankfully not to Rafas extent but then again i dont run around playing tennis either.


Giles Says:

http://alturl.com/ja5kp
Thank goodness Rafa has never felt the need to dress like this! How about the gold bag! LMAO!!!!!


Perfect fan Says:

Chic, how could u guess so rightly that I was describing myself in my last post. U made me blush like tomato red….LOL :)) jus kidding ;)

Dnt know abt looks, but I definitely try to be good, polite n helpful to people….n for that I m thankful to God for blessing me with rly nice parents, both very loving, well behaved yet strict persons.


Purcell Says:

Hippy Chic……I sympathise with your over active thyroid but I sincerely hope you’re not suggesting Rafa also has that complaint to add to his list of medical propensities because people will suggest another excuse in the making.
Oh and no doubt Nadal cleans up nicely but surely that doesn’t help his suit wearing ability. He simply hasn’t got the ‘superstructure’ or deportment to carry it off. Anyway, my fashion/ style yardstick is always the suit but there are many other ways to judge the ability to be a ‘clothes horse.’ Please don’t take my remarks too seriously. You must know that they are designed to get the pants of Giles etc in such a twist that they can ‘t think how to respond intelligently.


nadalista Says:

Hope you got that, @Giles. Wanna respond intelligently? Talk about Kardashian bottoms, pants in twists, hot air……

Now that’s intelligent…..

Now, what’s the thread about again? Oh Roger. Can’t be intelligent talking about that………..obviously.


Perfect fan Says:

Purcell, IMO roger looks great in suit n formals but not so good in casuals. And rafa looks great in casuals like jeans, tees as it fits nicely on his muscular n toned physique.

May be for that reason, to lot of people roger looks best in polos(which has a shirt-like look) than round-necks or crew-necks whereas rafa looks best in such tees….i have never seen rafa in polos but i think he will look horrible in that….probably thatswhy he doesn’t try it. Then again, JMO.


Hippy Chic Says:

Purcell lol no not at all,but i beg to differ as i say i have seen him in a suit many times and he does IMO carry himself of pretty well,anyway suits look fantastic on men,but im more into the smart but casual look on a man anyway.


Hippy Chic Says:

Perfect Fan lol but i seriously meant every word,and i agree its more important to be a nice person which counts way more than what a person wears or what he looks like,my late mother said beautys in the eye of the beholder it comes from within ;))..


Giles Says:

@Nadalista. Lol. That poster imagines himself as the intelligentsia of Tennis X. Poor deluded man. Bet he walks around in a white suit with gold trimmings and of course a gold handbag just like his idol. Sounds like he has beans on toast on his menu as well. No doubt that’s where all the hot air comes from.
@Purcell. Don’t forget to down your beans on toast with a glass of home made cider! Enjoy!!


Hippy Chic Says:

Funny how some threads always end up in a tit for tat Fedal warzone,who has the best hair cut,the best teeth,who looks best in a suit,who does the best endorsements????blah,blah,blah..


Okiegal Says:

I think they both look great when in their formal attire. I think the guy who would win the best overall look would be Novak…..can’t believe I just said that. I’m talking about formal……but Rafa gets the best overall casual look, imo. I, unlike Chic, love a guy in a suit! When my guy puts a suit on, I just flip!! I only get to see him in one when we go to a funeral. LOL. He is a wrangler jeans and cowboy boots guy all the time. My hubby wears a cowboy hat similar to the one Roger had on, but will admit, my guy looks better in a hat than Roger does!! LOL. I’m married to a cowboy, but what more could you expect, being from Oklahoma…….and yes, I’m nuts about his WRANGLER butt!!


Okiegal Says:

@Chic

I will have to agree with your perception of Perfect Fan……He does come across as a very nice person, very refreshing!! Beauty is in the eye of the beholder quote…….I’ve heard Mom say it many times……also beauty is only skin deep. I quoted that one to my hubby once, his answer was this: “but ugly goes all the way to the bone”!! Lol A little Oklahoma humor for the day. Have a good one, Chic!!


Hippy Chic Says:

Okiegal dont get me wrong i also go crazy for a man in a suit,and my hubby looked soooo hot on our wedding day,and i like that cowboy look too,reminds me of Clint Eastwood in his younger days,Rafa does pull off the smart casual style very well more than any other IMO,Novak does look better in day wear rather than his tennis attire ,but he has a very good nice tidy haircut,some men will get a complex when they read all this lol.


Okiegal Says:

@Chic

I do enjoy looking at the images of all the players when they get dressed up for the parties. The men don’t change in looks, but the women, wow, they don’t look like themselves. I saw a pic of Li ‘s, I didn’t recognize her. Very attractive when all made up and also Bartoli. We see the women players definitely looking their worst while playing, but they clean up good too. Isn’t it weird…a man’s face never changes….but a woman…..Thank you Lord for make-up!!!!!


Okiegal Says:

@ Chic

I read my last comment after it was posted. I happen to think I got off of tennis talk for a bit. But I looked at the thread byline again and it did have FACE in it, so we’re within the scope of the discussion. Don’t want to get into trouble!! Lol


Perfect fan Says:

@ okiegal: I guess I’ve not interacted with u often….but thanx for the kind words :)

Mus say….u r also a very nice & sweet person and I dnt remember u ever posting any negative remark on any player or anybody else whatsoever. I always admire people who are passionate supporters of their favourites but who also respect other players too :)


Okiegal Says:

@Perfect Fan

Thanks to you too. I am passionate about tennis. As I’ve said before, I appreciate everything these amazing players bring to a sport I’ve enjoyed for a long time. They never cease to amaze me! I’m a died in the wool Rafa fan, but love the challenges his opponents seem to always bring when playing him. That’s what makes it exciting. Roger and Stan’ s backhands blow me away! So yes, I do have great respect for the others.


Okiegal Says:

@Perfect Fan

BTW, I’ve noticed that some folks on this forum don’t really care for “NICE”, they prefer a nasty attitude. I will continue to be the person my parents raised me to be…….just saying!!

Have a great day or evening, which ever!! Okie


Purcell Says:

Nadalista and Giles……….honestly, what did I say about responding intelligently? And Giles, please don’t assume gender specifics from a user name or the way a person writes. Let’s put it this way. I’m a woman (Fed fan)/girl (Rafa fan.)


Okiegal Says:

@Purcell …… Chic was just responding to your post……you’re the one that brought up sweating in the first place. I guess she took the comment like I did. Are we now picking someone to pieces because they sweat or have a big bottom?? I’ll bet that gorgeous little chick who accompanies him to those big galas thinks he looks mighty fine in his tux or suit or whatever, and I’m inclined to agree!! So does Roger, Novak etal.


Hippy Chic Says:

Okiegal thanks for all the feedback regarding your posts,i agree in that they all clean up pretty well and look bloody grrreat,its all a matter of preferance as to whom we prefer dressed,undressed,suits,shorts,small or large behinds,sweat or no sweat etc,etc,etc,TBH does it really bloody matter anyway lol,nice talking to you,and looking forward to chatting some more tomorrow..


Okiegal Says:

@Chic

Yes, thanks. Gonna watch Rafa now. Well, I hope I haven’t missed it. Sometimes I screw up the time differences. Oh, well……..I guess I will survive if I missed it already! Lol
