    Tipsarevic, Tsonga, and Safin are my picks.

    Safin hands down. He dripped with coolness.

    Nalbandian in the few instances when he's completely on and crushing the likes of Federer and Nadal in back to back Masters events like it's no big deal. (Madrid/Paris 2007). He was oozing cool then and his style was calm and fluid ala Federer but more dangerous (brutal backhand).

    I agree with Safin!
    Coolest look goes to Arnaud Clement with the bandana & shades though Tipsarevic is a close 2nd.

    Cool, as in "cool as a cucumber"...or "ice water in his/her veins": Borg, Evert, Sampras, Fed

    Cool, as in "creative, most fun to watch special shots/points: sub Martina for Evert and add Santoro and Mecir, JMac in his prime.

    Cool, as in "hip", stylish, pushing the edge on the usually conservative appearance factor shared by the majority: Mattek-Sands, Tipsy (ink inspired by his favored classic Russian literature), the Williams duo (sometimes)

    Coolest match...Santoro/Fed

    Actually, much heart for Marat. However, "explosive" is the more appropriate adjective to describe both his personality and game. I will say the AO'05 SF with Fed is way up there on "cool" matches ever played.

    Definitely not Sampras, he was a weirdo.
