I think federer is generally passive but his come ons are always good.

I think when Nadal is fist pumping and all i think its a bit over the top

My favourite come ons would have to be from hewitt, fires himself up and seems to be intimidating. For example, match vs nadal at AO '05

Hewitt, for sure, so much passion it really gets the crowd going. Especially at the AO

Nadal, definitely. His fierce "come on" gives him an edge over his opponents.

you know the old tale about the little boy who cried "wolf" . . . that he said "wolf" so often that when the wolf finally came and attacked him, none of the townspeople came to his rescue because he had said "wolf, wolf!" too many times before when it it didn't matter??

. . . well that's leyton hewitt. through the years, he had diluted the power of yelling "come on" because he says it at the drop of a hat. perfect example: match point in the first round against an injured ginepri after hitting a mundane down-the-line backhand pass to take a match in which the outcome was not in doubt for the last two sets.

moral of story: just like the little boy who cried "wolf", hewitt's "come on's" don't mean a damn thing. i'll give him the prize for most "come on's" . . . but not the best.

I like Federers come ons because they are rare and you know he's hard to beat when he's fired up. Well he's always hard to beat.

Hewitt, Sharapova, Serena and Federer. I think when they're in the zone they're very affective and you can feel the intensity.

Ana Ivanovic on the other hand is just annoying, same for Murray. Just meaningless squeals/yells.

It may be over-the-top, but I like Monfils' chest-pounding "Allez!".

I like Mauresmo's jumping scissor-kick fist pump on the women's side. I also liked Henin's "Allez" as well, so maybe it's a French thing.

Without a doubt, Nadal. If Nadal can't pump you up then nothing can.

Tsonga close behind.

Well plainly it sucks and I don't like it, but to go along I'd say....Hewitt. Though he was severely ****ged by doing this in the past.

I've never heard Nadal say Cmon

Federer has the best reactions because it's at the right times

Hewitt. Forward thrust, COME ON, then punches down. Excellent.

Hewitt is the real deal. Especially now he is a bit older he doesn't do it too often. Murray has the most annoying one. He's the ivanovic of men's tennis;)

I like the solid one yell type thing.
Not the racquet hitting chest, ranting and screaming at yourself, ADJE' blowout move.
Players I love to hear:

Safina: THE ULTIMATE FIGHTING SPIRIT!
She's been through HELL and back to get to the top spot! No easy big wins for her.

Sharapova: she says it at the right time, not at a lame time when your like whatever shut up.
She gives a loud C'MON and a fist pump, which she has a unique one wit her fingers in the same place not just the clenched fist, her thumb goes into the middle of the other four somehow.

SERENA: She does it at the right time too, you know she's gonna hit a winner the next point when she says it.

Hewitt: the ultimate passion c'mon.

Federer: Says it very rarely, and you just know he will pull out the match somehow when you hear his, HOW INTIMIDATING!

The ones i go ehhh:

Nadal: his can be good, but the times that he goes overboard really kills the mood for me, maybe when it's a really pressure situation I feel it, but other times, just noo....

Ivanovic: Wayyyy too much, just so fake to me.

Murray: just a ranting baboon, very annoying. Very nerdy also.. lol

Djokovic's little ape move i dislike also.

The best "come on" of all-time?

Mr James Scott Connors:)

Especially later in his career at the US Open, see it and be inspired!!!

Hewitt hands down...Sharapova's post "come on" hyper focused, ceasure-esq, fist clenches come in a close second

The first thing I thought of when I saw that pic was the godzilla roar.

All of the "come on" calls suck though Brooklyn Decker liked Roddick's.
