So, we're all agreed: Burgsmuller beats Federer hands down in the charisma department
Sheesh, that thread title only just fits.
Not that I particularly care about the charisma quotient of either man, and no amount of photos of Federer in Adonis mode posted on this board by his fans will convince people that he is charismatic. I just have a feeling that Fumus would declare a cabbage to have more charisma than Roger if it developed the startling ability to beat him in important Slam matches and tournament finals.
Where does that leave Fat Dave, though? Or for that matter, Mellow Jiro?

ROGER FEDERER: Yeah, I remember this one time when I went on a vacation on the Maldives. That was in the year 2001, I think. I went to this spa. I went to walk around with my girlfriend. I walk in, and we want to book a spa. This guy goes, "AHH, I remember you. You beat Sampras. I saw you on TV." That was like, really, how can you remember me? This guy has probably never been off his island and still knows me. I was a little bit shocked. Then I went to play tennis with him because he was actually the tennis teacher. It was nice.
Q. Were you naked at the time in the spa?
ROGER FEDERER: No. It was at the front desk. I didn't walk in naked.
