Who is the most calmest player on court?

Watching some of my favourites, one thing really strikes me: most of them are so calm and show such little emotion.

So I was thinking: Who is the calmest player on tour?

Maybe some of you don't find this an interesting thread, but a think the ability to stay calm is underestimated a lot. Being angry all the time and shouting in frustration can seriously affect your game (Murray for example) and is negative energy you lose that could better be used for other purposes. In that way, being able to compose yourself is a sign of mental fortitude.

So what do you think: Who is best in control of their emotions? Who is the most composed?

EDIT: I know the title isn't grammatically correct, but I don't know how to edit it.

Idk why no mention of Dodig or Flo Mayer

Raonic, though I´ve seen him smash a racquet or two- but even that was kinda apathetic
Cilic, pretty much same story. No emotion except rare racquet smash.
I disagree with Seppi, he can show emotion. Ferrero showed less when younger, shows more now

Roger will definitely be #1 here. His only blemish is the us open final bickering but that's really impressive considering his career.

Nest, it used to be davydenko pre-wrist injury, but now he gets agitated really easily.

I've seen Milos blow up on court with missed calls, ferrero gets agitated easily so they are out for me. I would say Kevin Anderson is nice and boring, never really saw him explode.

I'm laughing at the Simon picks. He's taken over Murray's slot as the worst if you go by this week.

My pick is del Potro. He always looks tired or bored.

Raonic has shown he can get flustered (Hewitt at AO) but I don't think I've ever seen that from Kevin Anderson so I agree with that one.

Simon not all, he's quite irritated most of the time. Delpo is always at the edge of exhaustion it seems and he never seems to care really as does Tomic. Federer can burst in some heavy 'come on' so he also isn't the calmest. Raonic seems to be the favorite pick Till now.

In the fifth set of his matches with Clement and Stepanek it looked at times like he was jizzing through his pants while closer to finishing out the matches.

I don't think that's being calm, unless the definition of it changed while I was sleeping.

It's easy to be calm when you're playing next to goats with no crowd, but the true mettle of a player is defined on the big stages. I didn't see him handling the situation well yesterday, he was nervous as hell.

It's not just about major things like racquet smashes, arguing and overcelebrating. If you visibly mope, mumble to yourself, roll your head back and sigh when you're down, you are not calm -- and everyone can see it. Also looking up to your box a lot or being visibly twitchy when nervous.

Tomic just doesn't appear to give a fuck most of the time - doesn't mean he's calm.

Fed contains his emotions pretty well most of the time (controlling your emotions is surely one definition of calmness).

Pony very often seems very placid, although he also very often argues with the umpire.

Nadal plays every point as if he's match point down, so not exactly what you would call calm, although he certainly doesn't get flustered if he ever goes one set down.

No one since has ever come close to Bjorn Borg who was the ultimate in emotional control. Nastasi wrote in his autobiography that he would see Borg in the locker room after a Bjorn match and be unable discern whether Borg had won or lost. Borg is the only player I've ever seen who didn't react to bad calls. The man was actually spooky like some kind of alien being.

Actually crowds were very big his last matches, it may not have been on PC but it was quite hectic against Kubot and vs Clement the crowd wasn't behind him of course, not to mention both Steps and Clement are much more experienced on the big stage than he is.

Exactly. And that's why Im not picking Isner for example. He often has a desperate look on his face and is obviously when he is not pleased with himself. Besides, he often fistpumps.

Also, people picking Berdych :spit:

Come to Think of it: Cilic is very high up on this list.

Roger Federer is always the calmest, quietest and most composed player on court. He is the most positive example of a calm player. It's hard to believe that, as a teenager, he was a racquet smashing hothead and a bundle of stress. Juan Carlos Ferrero also seems calm and professional on court.

Edda
06-03-2012, 12:45 AM
I agree with Kat and Slice Winner. There is a vast difference between calm and bored. Calm to me means acting in a professional manner. Two of the most professional individuals on court, Rafa and Ferru, have a tough-minded, never say die attitude and only get mad at themselves when they mess up. It's definitely a mixed bag. Federer is quiet, but seems increasingly sloppy in his play. Rafa is definitely not quiet, but he never gives up-same with Ferru.

no he is not (both Murray and Djokovic are very emotional, although Djoko is getting better, if that's even important). nowadays, I'd say it's Federer. during the game he doesn't grunt, he doesn't show any emotion. Roger did cry after that AO final with Nadal, but during a match he is one of the calmest players I've ever seen. well, a young Roger was a different story, but he simply changed, grew up etc. Raonic is pretty good too.

I'm impressed how much Djokovic improved in this department. I remember, even as his fan, how much he used to drive me crazy when things didn't go his way.

He also seems more 'in Control of his emotions' , while it seems guys like Raonic, Cilic, Seppi aren't feeling any emotions on court, which obviously is not true of course, I know.

Raonic is pretty much as calm as it gets at any point in a match.

Raonic stayed impressively calm against Monaco, but I saw him in some matches when he was not calm at all. Actually, he's well-composed but he's a hot-headed person.

I think Tomic is more impressive for that.

Cilic is also very calm : it really needs a lot to have reaction from him. I like him, looks a nice guy.

Isner of course.

I think Seppi made a very good job against Djokovic on that side as well, and is usually a calm player.

Flo Mayer of course.

Besides, what Goffin said about Fed says it all. Quite the "cool as a cucumber" attitude which Sampras had. I think people exaggerate about Fed's "fear" or something : I remember Grosjean relating how he talked very relaxedly with Grosjean a few hours before the RG final 2009, and I've read many witnesses like that.

Borg of course was the epitome of that attitude, very very impressive : he even managed to have McEnroe stay calm against him :lol:

Roger is a bit more vocal than in his prime, I think he recognises the importance of big points against younger players now than he did during his peak. You get a lot more C'mons and stuff now than you did during his serene 03-07 period, then he sort of shrugged off those drop jaw moments with calm, acknowledgement.

I think Seppi made a very good job against Djokovic on that side as well, and is usually a calm player.

Flo Mayer of course.

Besides, what Goffin said about Fed says it all. Quite the "cool as a cucumber" attitude which Sampras had. I think people exaggerate about Fed's "fear" or something : I remember Grosjean relating how he talked very relaxedly with Grosjean a few hours before the RG final 2009, and I've read many witnesses like that.

Borg of course was the epitome of that attitude, very very impressive : he even managed to have McEnroe stay calm against him :lol:

Isner and Raonic. Florian Mayer is very calm too.

isner and roger

Isner and Anderson. Dolgopolov seems pretty calm to me too. He usually got the "I don't care" style even when it goes bad

Federer, Raonic, Isner.

Raonic, Isner and Berdych.

Federer just contains his frustration and emotions.

Isner.

BUMP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I agree with Mateya.

Seppi has got to be by far the calmest, most composed player on tour.
Nobody else would be able to remain as emotionless as Seppi was while he watched his 2 set lead over Novak in Paris fade away.
He gained my respect during that match and its why he's in my signature

Players raging, insulting and hurting themselves is always delicious to watch. (Haas' monologue)
Now what I don't like, those nasty looks at the opponents after winning a point.

Who cares when someone smashes HIS racket, or trying to boost his confidence by raging at himself :shrug:

Also I don't like players jumping, screaming and cheering after winning a point.

Now mix all that up with Haas and you'll know what I'm talking about ;)

In my mind, Fognini, Tomic and Raonic seem pretty calm on court. They don't really celebrate big points (well maybe Tomic does sometimes) and they don't seem too frustrated when losing points. At least Fognini most of the time looks like he doesn't give a shit.

Raonic and Cilic. Very little emotion, especially Raonic.

Seppi too actually.

Sam Querrey. He's D-gaf all day. You never see him fired up, positively or negatively. The only time I saw him really let out emotions was during that Odesnik match in Houston a couple of years ago.

It's a positive and negative thing, really.

Of course Federer :D the reason why he can still be the best after all these years, is becouse he never force himself. If the ball is just too good, he doesn't run but prepares for the next rally.

Sure, but deciding not to chase after some balls doesn't have anything to do with being calm emotionally on court :shrug: Federer may not have too many outbursts of negativity, but he does have quite a bit of positive emotion like "come ons" and fist pumps, and I took this thread to compare who is the calmest period (positive or negative). Certainly of all time, Borg and Mecir are top 2 in my book.

The Swiss guy may be one.

By the way, for information, "most calmest" is wrong in the grammatical sense. We should not combine two superlatives in one sentence. "Calmest" will do. Thank you.

anyone watch enough Raonic matches must know that he's NOT that calm at all especially when things not going this way. You can tell he is incredibly frustrated with himself from his body language. This is one of the things he need to work on...

Yeah Raonic is what i would call a false calm...

Throughout the years, Chris Guccione is the calmest player i have ever seen.
Seppi is a great call too.
