Being nice goes hand in hand with sportsmanship. And while most players behave well most of the time, few players are consistently nice regardless how they feel on court. Nieminen and Baghdatis are such players.

Granted he has said some wrong things in his interviews. However, I think this award relates to fair play on the court. And that is where he triumphs over others in my humble opinion. He does not allow any time wasting, celebrating over unforced errors of opponents or offset the opponent in any manner, sort or form. He just plays tennis , plain and simple. This might be the catalyst to him winning the award multiple times

Misrepresentation at the highest level. Like most of the top players, he doesn't do that on a regular basis, if at all.

Qureshi deserves it really

federer- yeah, he's a great ambassador- but ultimately what he's done pales in comparisson to Qureshi

nadal and nole- seriously guys- 2 guys who have fucked up tennis with cheating, time wasting, fake injuries- medical timeouts and shit play?

fuck that- murray before them

God is Love. To know Love is to know God. So ask yourself if you hold any hate for another in your heart how can you have room for Love, room for God

^^Agree re. Nadal, but Nole at least is mostly a gracious loser and I like that he's the only top player to applaud his opponents' brilliant shots.

BTW, fixed your spelling for you.

The number of times you've brought up that 3-second event - man, that loss must have really hurt



"When I'm asked, how is it to be around Federer, and what is he really like, I always reply, "I wish people could meet him when cameras or an audience aren't around, as he is one of the nicest people I have ever met when stringing on tour. " -- drakulie

It's about as bad as MuzzahLovah's obsession with Fed's comments about Murray's Asian swing.
