Tennis Players for President

Hey fellow MTFers

I was wondering, in a fictional scenario, which Player would you choose to be President of the following regions. This is just a game and you can choose active or retired players.

North America
I will go with Andre Agassi because he has a personality that the gullible voter will easily vote for. Whether it's all phony or true, the guy can really rally people's support.

South America
I would choose Gustavo Kuerten. By just looking at him, I wouldn't mind voting for him without knowing his policies. He has the looks and speech of a decent guy who wouldn't be a bad president.

Europe
Bjorn Borg has this cool aura that would attract all kinds of voters. And he just looks like a gentleman made for president (scrape the drug stories) On the other hand Novak Djokovic is the Sarkozy type of person who can make people believe that he is going to bring changes. I guess I wouldn't mind having Djokovic in Office as he is abundant of self-confidence and is someone you would like to be in charge during hard times.

Pacific/Asia
I would vote for Pat Rafter for similar reason to Kuerten. PLus he is such a gentleman and has the presidential looks.

Actually instead of Djokovic, I would stick with Borg

Well since it's a game.

North America: John McEnroe
Would be great to see that. YOU CANNOT BE SERIOUS. *Throws tantrum, nukes whole world*

South America: David Nalbandian
Maybe he'll get serious for once.

Europe: Bartolomé Salvà Vidal
Just because he has a cool name.

Pacific/Asia: -
No idea

USA - McEnroe, he has sth to say usually
Europe/France - Noah, he is the one.
South America - Gaudio, I see him as an incorruptible guy (maybe a little depressive)
Australia - Luckzak, he looks serious.

AFRICA (Why Not? In 2020 ATP #1 will be from Transvaal). I vote for Roger Federer as President of Africa in 2010.

How on earth do you become President of a continent? :cuckoo:

There are too many countries per continent for the game to be enjoyable and easy to play. Besides Asia and Africa have fewer players compared to the number of Countries. e.g. There are a few Asian players compared to the number of countries and some countries don't even have known players.

Just make sure that you get him to sign a release, and commit this Presidential sit down to video. You and Gaudio in a room, discussing political plans, for an extended period of time? I want to see it. :p

no matter where, as long as there's Federer somewhere. i'll be changing citizenship to vote for him. :lol:

Bjorkman [I know you saw it coming]-I think he would be firm, but fair. He has the experience in being a leader of the ATP Council [is that the name?], has fought for his [doubles] rights, has the parental experience, and being a family man on tour has probably experienced the stresses of trying to keep everyone happy. He would be young enough to be 'with the times', and would give his country a good image overseas because he and his family are ridiculously beautiful:p

I would see Federer as more of a Kofi Annan type.

Ion Tiriac should be the head of the UN.

Marcelo Rios would be the best press officer for any government or international organisation.

He meant it as a joke about the huge popularity and following that Nole has in Serbia in comparison to the current leader, but it looks like Janko Tipsarevic's smart-ass comment to a reporter back-fired-
