Who is the Alpha Male of the ATP tour?

Willy Canas was more an alpha male type.
Now, they all seem like boys.
There are no Alpha Males in South America.

Their performative displays of machismo and toxic masculinity do nothing but reinforce their beta-ness.

The prime requisite of an alpha is to be comfortable and confident in oneself, and the society around them.

If the top ATP players were a troop of baboons, which one would be the Alpha Male of the cohort?

In my opinion, it's got to be Sir Alpha Murray. The much-vaunted Scotsman exudes dominance.

The likes of Federer, Nadal, and Defaultovic just come across as uninspiring betas.
Of the big 4 yes, but there are others. Tsonga maybe. And of course some players from the past, like Safin.

Odd topic, but much better than "who's the goat" or "what if Nadal had 3 arms and Djokovic 3 legs".

Murray is probably pretty alpha. But I would say the most alpha is Djokovic. Though, it's almost like he wants to be beta.

How in the world would you consider Defaultovic to be "alpha"?
I guess Djokovic isn't that alpha because an alpha wouldn't argue the default as much. He is still great though. I think he was naturally meant to be a sigma like his father, but the tour changed him.

I would say most alpha of the players I have seen is Murray, Dustin Brown, Tsonga, or Thiem.

Let's get this thread rolling. Alpha male threads tend to go at a rapid pace and into the wee hours of the morning.

And it's very difficult to be considered alpha when you go with mummy to every tourney and whine like a baby after every point you lose like certain semi retired Scotsman.
OOOHHHHHHHHHH

That settles it.

There are no alphas on the ATP tour.

I strongly presume you're a gay male, but ask straight women around here about this opinion since we know better. Nadal, Federer and Djokovic are the antithesis of a "BETA male." And I think you need to Google the definition of this term since you have no clue what you're talking about in this area.
