Obviously, he wasn't the best player in terms of achivements. He's only #3 in the rankings. That said, him and Roger are very obviously the best players around when it comes to games, talent and aesthetics.
That said, next year will be Andy's year. He'll be by far the best player. I'm going to enjoy 2013.
How can pushing all match long can be considered as being the best player in "talent and aesthetics."?
