Who is the most calmest player on court?

Watching some of my favourites, one thing really strikes me: most of them are so calm and show such little emotion.

So I was thinking: Who is the calmest player on tour?

Maybe some of you don't find this an interesting thread, but a think the ability to stay calm is underestimated a lot. Being angry all the time and shouting in frustration can seriously affect your game (Murray for example) and is negative energy you lose that could better be used for other purposes. In that way, being able to compose yourself is a sign of mental fortitude.

So what do you think: Who is best in control of their emotions? Who is the most composed?

EDIT: I know the title isn't grammatically correct, but I don't know how to edit it.

Raonic is pretty much as calm as it gets at any point in a match.

Tomic... he genuinely looks like he doesn't give a s**t.

“There’s so many athletes, tennis players around the world,” he continued, trying to put his life into some kind of perspective, “they want to be the best in what they do. They want to succeed. Many of them, they don’t succeed in the end. I’m fortunate to have this opportunity and succeed.”

I think Raonic as well. No positive or negative emotion whatsoever.
