Pat Rafter, a professional tennis player from Australia, has reportedly looked unrecognizable after three decades in the spotlight.
During the 1990s, he was regarded as a sex symbol. He was able to reach the Wimbledon final in 2000 and 2001, losing to Goran Ivanisevic and Pete Sampras respectively.
After winning his first US Open title in 1997, Rafter became a household name.
He joined an exclusive club that includes some of the world’s most prominent athletes, such as David Beckham and The Rock.
Unfortunately, since he started showing signs of aging, he no longer has a six-pack and a grey beard.
After becoming a family man, Rafter and his wife Lara have two children. They are India, 18, and Joshua, 20.
During the 20th anniversary of the men’s final at Wimbledon, fans were surprised to see that Rafter still had the same facial hair.
According to some of his fans on social media channels, Rafter has become unrecognizable since the last time they saw him.
He quickly became a fan favorite after he won a game, and he also went on to date various models.
Despite his age, he still admitted that he was afraid of girls in high school. Rafter appeared on the cover of GQ magazine’s magazine.
Rafter was inducted into the Hall of Fame of Tennis in 2006.
His achievement came after he was named as the 2002 Australian of the Year.
