Rafa won something too

Devastated that I have to agree with Start da Game, but the Edberg award is starting to become a bit of a joke. Qureshi deserved it, the other three all had moments of terrible sportsmanship this year. Oh well

JLH, change the title maybe to just say 'ATP 2011 World Tour Awards' or something, otherwise this will become a complete flame thread (it likely will already, but at least there will be an element of surprise when people click)

Re: Federer wins Stefan Edberg and fans' favourite awards

To use the words of Mjau: Edberg must be spinning in his grave.
What a shit award it has become.

That Fed is the fan favourite is no surprise.

Tea of truth:

Stefan Edberg award is a farce, but that's to be expected.

Other awards make sense.

I'm curious what those moments of terrible sportsmanship were? What exactly was so terrible? Isn't the SE award chosen by the players? Perhaps there are things they see/know about that the average fan doesn't which influences their decision? Who decides on the list of players to be nominated for the SE award?

Of course we don't know what goes on behind the scenes--but if Berdych can make his vote based on one bitter interview from Roger, well Novak's celebrations on (and off) court have been over the top and even Rafa has been a little pissy this year.

Naturally, I'm not a player, so I don't have the final say. Just speaking from a fan perspective and as someone who is just disappointed at the result.

Okay I'm sorry but I find those reasons kinda lame. I guess it's a matter of opinion, but I didn't find any of ND's over the top celebrations in an in your face kind of way. Not like he was rubbing his opponents noses in his victories.

Having said that I don't doubt there are lesser-known players who were/are also deserving of this award. I don't know why the players continue to give this award to only the top players...

Re: ATP 2011 World Tour Awards

Can't complain much. Apparently insignficant world number 4 wins the award, there's a rarity. Looks like the realists edged out the glory hunters. It was always going to be between Nole and Fed for obvious reasons, so between those two Fed is by far the more deserving winner. No debates necessary.

So someone recently informed me that my sig was empty. Said I needed a life affirming motivational quote by a positive role model like Einstein or Oscar Wilde...

Great tip to stay fit and mobile: If you run up and down the stairs two steps at a time at least once daily, there will never come a time when you can't do it. Until of course one day you mistime a step, collapse and break all your bones... That would suck. But you had a good run.
