Charasmatic Players

Hey, I didn't think I should bother with a poll because I know Marat would be the universal choice. But what are the others that really spice up the ATP - people who seem interesting and seem to have a sense of humour

My personal favourites

Marat (obviously)
Marco Bagdahitis
Andy Roddick
Andre Agassi
Mario Ancic
Gael Monfils

Now please can all the groupies on this board refrain from posting the obvious - this is about charisma - not just being attractive

Re: Charasmatic Players

Graydon Oliver
Jim Thomas! Seriously. Few people know of him, but he's super friendly
Jonas is very approachable and easy going. A bit of a dag.
Jurgen is cool once you've spoken to him a few times and broken him in! Just a regular guy

Other than that... of the guys I've spoken to.... these are pretty cool:
Alexander Waske - would be the kind of guy you could hang out with for drinks!
Alex Bogomolov - I know, he can act a bit ass-ish on court, but get him off court and he's awesome
Alexander Popp - very friendly
Brian Vahaly - I miss him! He's the sweetest, friendliest guy.

Sorry I raved on so much! Obviously I like all the guys in my signature for their personalities...often more than their tennis, but some seem shy or a bit reserved And some players... I don't know if they're friendly or just polite because I'm a chick!? Oliver Marach really opened up to me, telling me about this yellow fluid that came out of his foot! somehow, it made him endearing!

°Kunitsyn_Vinciguerra_Klec_Djokovic_Istomin_Paukku _Golubev°

♥Jonas Björkman Jim Thomas♥
Larsson ~ Legner ~ Scheffers ~ Kruszelnicki ~ Cattaneo ~ Jonsson ~ Andersson

Re: Charasmatic Players

I llike drama on the court. Sorry polite doesn't do it for me.

Actually your favorite player Tommy H. is very fun to watch. When he used to yell at Red the entire match, and then say things after the match that he yelled at Red because he wasn't coaching him during the match. lol!

My favorite, Nico Massu, has lots of drama, racquet throwing, etc.

Ditto Marat. And love the outrageous things he says to the media.

Rafa is fun to watch because of all the fist pumping and vamosing.

I get a kick out of Andy's complaining even though some people find it annoying.

Re: Charasmatic Players

Charisma is more than fist-bumping and ridiculing the media. It is also more than being interesting and witty at press conferences.

Marat is rather unique in this, I'd say. He manages to get you involved, makes you feel what he feels, the frustration and the anger. You perfectly understand why he throws a raquet and in this particular moment you want to do the same.

Re: Charasmatic Players

Charisma is very subjective but to me it is Marat Safin without a doubt. Nobody even comes close. He comes across as being very genuine about his emotions on court and potrays the human side of tennis very well.

I totally agree with this - lots of people seem to think shouting, screaming, waving your fist and acting like a spoilt 2 year old is being "charismatic", but I disagree and feel that guys like Carlos Moya and Roger Federer are much more charismatic because they remain cool and calm but you just know there is more passion and feeling hidden beneath the surface - Bjorn Borg was the same in my opinion. I also think Guga is an incredibly charismatic character. I do agree about Marat though - he is intelligent, multi-lingual and humourous as well as his more dramatic features.

Off the top of my head:

Ivo Karlovic, Nikolay Davydenko, Jiri Novak, Vincent Spadea, Tomas Zib, etc. The list is endless.

Re: Charasmatic Players

I saw Freak show at RG quallies when he beat that retarded Robert Kendrick and it was hilarious but we were only a few attending this.
Fatty Labadze hands down

Left-handedness is more than just a physical specialization. It's a state of mind.
