Anyhoo, I think the disposition thing is an interesting idea but honestly, if anybody really needed to get fired up and pissed off at Roger to beat him they could find a way. Roger is a nice guy but he's also said some things that could be interpreted as arrogant if one really wanted to (ie, twist the words around a bit). Roger plays with a lot of controlled aggression and he's learned to use his anger to his advantage whereas other players use their anger to vent at the chair ump and then they wonder why they lose.
Also, Jimmy Connors was the King of Assholes but hating him still didn't help his opponents learn to beat him.
