Re: Charismatic???

Agassi is the first, just for his self-control and dedication he still puts in his game after all the years... then he's always had an aura, a little something that made him a big star from the begining... there might be some charisma somewhere.
Safin is also charismatic by his looks, his size, and his honest personality
Federer will be more when older, but still I think guys piss in their pants nowadays in the locker room before playing Fed.
In the past, I thinks Sampras was very chrismatic, as well as Connors and Becker....

"I asked a bloke in the front row if he liked the serve-and-volley stuff," said Rafter. "He said he did but asked if he was going to get to see any rallies. 'Not today, mate,' I told him."

Re: Charismatic???

Although I would probably pick some player with a very poor ranking, I'm going with Marat. He's a dag. I like dags.

Re: Charismatic???

I m surprised that Fed has 0 votes so far. I thought Fed fans considered him to be "Jesus."

Re: Charismatic???

I'm not a particular fan of his, but surely Roddick should be on this list.

mdhubert - what makes you think Sampras was charismatic? I can't think of a word that describes him worse than that!

Re: Charismatic???

JTipson, no one on this board seems to like Roddick so I didn't put him in.
I agree with you on Sampras, he was the most uncharismatic tennis player I have ever seen.

Re: Charismatic???

Andre Agassi IS Mr Charisma, and I would add Guga to that list and El Aynaoui. Safin is humourous but normally looks pissed off in his interviews. Goran was a born showman as well.

I think you're charismatic when you impose respect naturally, without doing gesticulations and controversy... for me Pete was charismatic, explain me why he was not...

Charisma: A rare personal quality attributed to leaders who arouse fervent popular devotion and enthusiasm. Personal magnetism or charm.

I really don't think Sampras had these. He won fans through his game and ability to win, not his personality.
