Re: How come Federer Never won Most improved player of the year award???
I think it might have something to do with the level of expectations for Federer. I remember back when he was 17 and started playing "real" ATP tournaments, everybody was saying that this guy had unreal talent and was going to be #1. But for a long time not a whole lot happened, so while he was making rankings progress he was still disappointing people a little. Then when he finally got it all to click it was a bit of a "we all expected it" kind of event, so I suppose that people took it for granted. Unlike Schuttler in 2003, who nobody expected to suddenly be near the top of the rankings.
Proud fan of Olderer, the GOAT.
