his game, his dominance, his mental strength, but his charisma?
If you play like crap and you're a choker there's little chance people define you as "charismatic", so charisma must be based on some of the stuff above, plus physical presence I think Sampras had with his bulky frame and honorable height.

And I don't understand the reference to Djokovic.
Djokovic recently took 5 medical breaks in one match against Monfils, while in Pete-Corretja match in 96' the umpire wanted to stop the match because Pete was obviously sick but the latter went on to play. Just a little joke and another ground on which you build charisma or... greatness.
Now to end on a positive and consensual note, I find Agassi much more charismatic as I mentioned before (though it's not confirmed by the poll).

Not true. Safin often plays crap and chokes, but quite a lot of people rate him as "charismatic". How about Ivanisevic, too?

Sampras is only as tall as Tim Henman (although a little bit heavier build), so he really can't have been physically imposing to the average male tennis player.

I guess we have to agree to disagree on this. :)

I am a Fed fan but Marat definitely has more charisma than Federer. By the way, Fed has more charisma than Rafa.

Well Agassi was always more popular than Sampras, even though Sampras was the top player. That does not seem very charismatic.

Of the players on your list, Safin without question.

I think Roddick should be nominated instead of (or as well as) Hewitt and, inspite of their low rankings, El Aynoui and Guga should be there.

For me, Bjorn Borg was the epitome of charisma. What do you think ? jtipson ?

Of those choices I went for Marat. But I would have picked Andy or Carlos over him if they were on the list.

Agassi by far. People love him for his achievements, for his game but most of all for his personality. Then maybe Roddick, Gaudio and Grosjean.
