Tennis hottie, Feliciano Lopez, the Spanish tennis player who beat Andy Roddick in Friday’s third round of Wimbledon, has been nicknamed “Deliciano” by the mother of a rival player. The name stems from Lopez’s heartthrob good looks and his belief that any opportunity to go shirtless is a good one.

Given the attention paid to his chiseled physique and manly appearance, you’d think Lopez would be used to people talking about such aspects of his being. A recent dust-up with American television analyst Justin Gimelstob suggests otherwise.

During Lopez’s upset win over Roddick, Gimelstob discussed the Spaniard’s reputation:

“I think Feliciano is a great player, but he certainly loves to look in the mirror. And it’s okay to do it, he’s a very attractive man. People always talk about women, but he is tall, handsome, with a good body. Very metrosexual, yes. But not only him, his style of tennis is also attractive.”

Lopez angered by Gimelstob’s ‘metrosexual’ comments replied via Twitter:

So what’s the verdict. Lopez is handsome? Check. Good body? Check! Metrosexual? We’d call it European, but yes.

He’s 29.
