Players and their political positions.

Anyone know what political position different players have?

I know Vassallo Arguello is from extreme left
Nico Massu family is centre-right.

Someone know more about others players?

Thanks in advance.

Re: Players and his political positions.

Rafa Nadal's family is right-winged, they vote for the PP party (center-right) of Spain

Rafael "The Matador of Spin" Nadal
Roger “The Magician of Precision” Federer
Del Potro, Ferrer, Haas, Zeballos

Re: Players and his political positions.

Agassi = Democrat
Sampras = Republican

Re: Players and his political positions.

Agassi = phony.

Hope this helps.

I think he's as republican as Sampras.

Re: Players and his political positions.

Most French players are pro-Sarkozy (right wing).
Gasquet, Santoro (they both play tennis with Sarko and support him in interviews), Simon voted Sarko in 2007, Llodra drools over Sarko in interviews...

Monfils doesn't want to talk about politics in interviews.
I don't know for Tsonga.

Federico Luzzi (RIP) was right winged.

Re: Players and his political positions.

No surprise most tennis players are right wing-biased.

Tennis is an elite sport and the elite is usually a supporter of the right wing.

Daniel Schapira (RIP) was murdered by the Argentine dictatorship.

Cheering for that idiot? What a deception
I was sure that he and Agassi support Gore in 2000, and they had a comic verbal row with Kafelnikov (an extreme right winged) about that

Why do you think he's a republican?
He sure is phony on many other issues though.

He's a phony about everything, he must be a phony for that too.
