Just reading your views on Moya. I for one am very happy for Carlos. I think he deserves the award. He's worked so hard this year to come back and I was very happy that he made it to Shanghai and came out top of his group even though Juanqui beat him in the semis.
Hackie, your point re: titles on European soil/courts is an interesting one -- did they take that into consideration? If so, perhaps we should revisit this whole thing, out of curiosity!
I also think that despite only winning 1 tournament, Marat actually did well even though his temperament got the better of him quite often this year.
As for Juanqui, he's clearly the BEST Spaniard and he's improving by leaps and bounds although his results don't reflect this -- most would simply say but he got to the RG final but didn't win it!! He's getting there and I think he'll achieve his BIG goal next year [winning that GS or TMC].
One day my Rogi will win the award, I hope!
