Hottest Male Tennis Players-All Time

Rafter, Hottest Male Tennis Players

Tennis and glamour have always been walking together hand in hand, season to season, continents to continents and their relation is tied up as twins.

It’s all about the lights of glamour and the game that turned the Swedish giant to a legendry profile Bjorn Borg, both in the court and to the media as one of the hottest male players of his era. German stars are not far away in this race, putting their profile in the list of hot shots through Boris Becker, whose name kept shining in the media faster than his rocket serve. Now a day’s glamour is so much into tennis that the legends are competing both in the circuit as well as in the media lights, and there is one angry star famous for his racket breaking, Marat Safin whose anger is more than the heat produced by the glamorous lights.

The profile of hottest tennis male players is incomplete without the Spanish bull Rafael Nadal known as “Rafa”, who has truly caught the eyes of millions around the world not only by his top game but also by his Biceps. Some say his biceps are stronger than the bulls horn followed by his country man Fernando Verdasco who couldn’t rule the circuit but is ruling the hearts of thousands of girls with his hotness.

Last but not the least, a name no one wants to miss is of the current world No. 1 from Serbia, Novak Djokovic, who has crushed all opponents in the current year and is also under the fashion lights which are constantly storming around him. Perhaps with his hot and cool attitude and sexy body, he no doubt is the icon of the hottest male tennis players of history. Any doubt? 😉
