Do Sharapova and Williams Lack Moxy?

They're perhaps the top 2 tennis players to ever play the game, but I can't help but feel like they lack the moxy (for lack of a better term) that most top 75 tennis players do.

Players like Agnieszka and Birnerova are players that show much moxy on and off the court by going out of their comfort zone and attending player's parties, holiday events, and what have you.

Does anyone agree?

Rooks have to be social.

Vets are the party.

This isn't just tennis, this is real life.

Bosses and Stars don't run around, they run things.

Workers and "the crew" run around trying to network, if they're smart.

If your fave's coach isn't Richard Williams, that's just her first problem...

I was there when the ALL BLACKS won the World Cup in 2011!!!

I'd say that pretty much sums it up.

Btw, I don't think "moxie" was quite the word the OP was looking for.
Maybe it's more akin to 'je ne sais quoi'.
But I don't know what English word would compare.

I stopped taking this seriously after reading this. Serena might perhaps be described in such terms but Sharapova?

Re: Do Sharapova and Williams Lack Moxy?

Maybe socialite is the word you are looking for? Serena is definitely a socialite, but has many more opportunities to be one at parties/events unrelated to tennis, unlike most of the other players.
