No, but the press sure are

As if it matters that none of the top three were in Paris this year, most of them never play it in the first place and Roger has lost the last two years to Monfils and Benneteau anyway

Roger or Qureshi. It would be nice if a non-big name won it.

Roger Federer

Federer, for the classy, gentlemanly way he has of always trashing Murray and Djokovic.

"What kind of shape am I in now? Well round is a shape." said Roddick with a laugh. "I had a very detailed retirement plan, and I feel like I've met every aspect of it: a lot of golf, a lot of carbs, a lot of fried food, and some booze, occasionally — I've been completely committed ... The results have shown."

NOT Djokovic.

Maybe Djoker could win 2011 NIkolai Davydenko/David Savic Unsportsmanlike Award?

Patrick Rafter as well.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Good sportsmanship isn't a net thing- even if he's a nice guy in private, publicly insulting/detracting from other players should pretty much disqualify you for and award on sportsmanship.

Yeah, the press are like that with everyone. If a press person said something to Djokovic about his season vs Fed's best seasons, it doesn't give him license to point out Fed was dominated on clay even in best seasons by Nadal, while Djokovic has managed to beat the second-best clay-specialist of all time twice on his favorite surface. That's a tard argument to have, beneath a champion.

Well then, I expect that we'll hear you've written to at least everycone of the other 1000 ATP Players and instructed them thereto



"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
