2000: Safin
2001: Hewitt
2002: Sampras
2003: Roddick
2004: Federer

"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."

Re: Your player(s) of the year since 2000!

Posting it depending on expectations to results.
Fed was expected to win 3-4 grandslams. He won 2.
No way Nadal was expected to win 10 tournaments as a teenager.
Also Nadal broke a record this year while Fed has not broken a record this year.
I am not the only one to put Nadal as the player of the year for 2005.

Re: Your player(s) of the year since 2000!

I don't think Fed was expected to win RG by analysts but he was predicted to win the Aussi Open.
I guess I am biased, but Nadal broke the record for most tournaments won by a teenager and won RG on his first try.

Some people have unrealistic expectations. Or may be stupid is the right world. Reasonable people knew it would be very hard to repeat 2004.
Besides, player of the year should be determined by actual results, not expectations. End of the discussion.
