THIS former Wimbledon finalist looks unrecognisable from the time he was named ‘sexiest person alive’.

The tennis star was a massive sex symbol in the late nineties and he proved he had the ability to match on the court.

The former Wimbledon finalist is showing his age with a grey beard

The Aussie became world number one in 1999

He reached the Wimbledon final in successive years in 2000 and 2001, losing to Pete Sampras and Goran Ivanisevic.

And his success on grass came after winning the US Open in 1997 and 1998, leading him to rank first in the world in July 1999.

He became a household name after his first US Open win and became part of an elite club that includes David Beckham, Cristiano Ronaldo and Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson.

That’s because the Aussie was voted People’s Sexiest Athlete Alive in 1997.

He quickly became mobbed by adoring fans after matches and would go on to date models, despite admitting he was “afraid” of girls in high school.

The 50-year-old appeared on the front cover of GQ magazine and became an underwear model for Bonds.

After an impressive career the man from down under was inducted into the tennis hall of fame in 2006.

That came after he was named Australian of the Year in 2002 – three years after winning the Davis Cup for his country.
