Whenever I try to fill the face connecting the selected vertices (by selecting the edges and pressing f: enter image description here

I get this weird filling enter image description here

enter image description here

So, why isn't that face filled properly? and how can I fill it smoothly?

  • $\begingroup$ That's not just the failure of 'F' to create new edges spanning your new face ( which you would expect: either use Grid Fill or cut the replacement edges yourself ). Some of your edges are connecting the wrong vertices, somewhere inside the object, or doubles. Clean up, and check all the vertices on the perimeter of your hole. $\endgroup$ – Robin Betts Mar 23 '18 at 13:30

by selecting the edges and just pressing F you are creating a so-called n-gon (face with more than 4 vertices). The subdivision modifier can't handle those very well and thats what messing up your mesh.

enter image description here

Select the top and bottom row of vertices (1st image) and use grid fill to make the faces.

Mesh ‣ Faces ‣ Fill/Grid Fill

Result on my mesh: (your proportions are a bit different, but its basically the same structure):
