The Marvel Universe is arguably the most popular comic series in the world and is widely followed by people of all ages. Marvel’s characters have become some of the most beloved and popular comic heroes our time.

Just for fun imagine a scenario in which the world of tennis merges with the Marvel Universe. What would happen then? Read on!

5) Rafeal Nadal – Thor

Long locks and an incredible physique makes Nadal a perfect body double for Thor. Thor draws lightning from his hammer while Nadal also hits a screamer of a service.

Nadal has been one of the greatest tennis players of his generation and while injuries have curtailed his career to an extent his hunger for the game has not reduced.  (Tennis Players Were Marvel Superheroes )

Thor has been one of the under rated super heroes of the Marvel Universe. He never looks to pick a fight because he knows he will win any fight that he takes part in.

4) Serena Williams – Black Widow

Serena Williams will go down as one of the greatest female tennis players in history. Her cold and calculated approach to beat her opponent is reminiscent of how Black Widow wins most of her battles.

Black Widow has slowly turned into one of the more popular characters in the Marvel Universe. Her appeal is through her sassy attitude that outwits most people.

Serena Williams has supreme self confidence which helps in achieving her personal targets. Very Black Widow like !  (Tennis Players Were Marvel Superheroes )

3) Novak Djokovic – Capatain America

Captain America always does the right thing even when he knows he is the only one who thinks it is right. Which is why he is not always the most popular one.

Even though Djokovic is one of the greatest of his generation, he has somehow not warmed up to all tennis fans.

Unfortunately Djokovic will always be compared to the uber popular Roger Federer which makes it a tad unfair on him. Not unlike what Cap feels when he is compared to Tony Stark!

2) Roger Federer – Iron Man

Is there a more popular Marvel character than Iron Man? Is there a more universally loved tennis player than Roger Federer?

Class, Style and bucket loads of charisma, Tony Stark and Roger Federer seem to be very similar to each other.  (Tennis Players Were Marvel Superheroes )

While Tony might have the edge on the trash talking aspect, Roger’s class allows him to wriggle out of any tight situation that he may find himself in.

1) Andy Murray – Doctor Strange

The latest darling of the tennis and the brand new poster boy have a few things in common.  (Tennis Players Were Marvel Superheroes )

Suave British charm aside, both Murray and the Doctor have gained a lot of popularity very recently. Their recent successes have played a big role in that.

While Murray is  basking in the glory of finally becoming the number one in Tennis, Doctor Strange has become one of the biggest blockbusters of the year.
