I think that happens in a lot of sports. That just comes with the game when you're a great player. I think Arthur Ashe mentioned a couple of players just had an aura (not sure if that was the exact term but the general meaning is the same) about them when they played and that was Borg and John Newcombe. Ashe mentioned he didn't feel that way about Laver and Rosewall but perhaps they were so good they didn't need it.
