Björn Borg. He got the nickname "The Ice Man" for a reason. He'd be as cool in a deadly tense tiebreak as when leading 6-0, 5-0, 40-0


Sure Federer is calm now but in his youth he was a bit hotheaded. That was before he had an army of gloryhunters ofc so not sure it counts.

Has to be Borg. Totally expressionless. There is only one exception: a match in Stockholm, I think, against McEnroe, of all people, where he has a protracted, heated argument with the umpire, but other than that, nothing. Laver gave nothing away either. Rosewall was calm but would hang his head & look dejected when things weren't going his way - as for example against Connors in 1974. Same goes for Edberg. Other players mentioned - Fed, Sampras, Lendl (of all people) - were hotheaded firebrands in comparison.

Borg the Martian. You can forget every other player. Borg was a mental freak who never even objected to outrageous bad calls. There was one lone exception. At the year-end Masters in MSG against McEnroe, at a crucial point in a tiebreak, Frank Hammond overruled a good call on the baseline in favor of Mac. Borg calmly walked to the chair and softly complained refusing to play for five minutes or so. Everyone was shocked. Borg lost the tiebreak but won the match.

05 RG SF was almost better than the 08 Final just because of Fedull throwing a fit for the whole match.

Federer.
Kept his cool against his so called main rivals CHEATING and gamesmanship thoroughly his career.
Not sure many had to deal with such disregard for the rules to gain an unfair advantage and keep " cool"
