    i wouldnt say they have attracted much of a crowd at all because of their personalities. neither of them have very loud personalities so people arent as entertained by them. people are entertained by their tennis skill. their skill and record breaking has drawn a crowd more than anything else they have done.

    There was something about those guys you listed that we may never see again. Each was very different and each brought record numbers of people to the sport in a way we've never seen since.

    Each was either American, or had a rivalry with an American.

    This is why the game needs Tsonga. I hope he wins Wimbledon, but of course he hasn't shown he's capable of pulling off something like this.
