"Rafael Nadal has been named as the ATP European Player of the Year for 2005 as voted by the ATP’s European tournament directors."
"The ATP European Player of the Year Award is based on diverse criteria, including a player’s final INDESIT ATP Ranking position, attitude towards media and sponsors, cooperation with the European events, and number of tournaments played. Spaniard Carlos Moya won the inaugural award in 2002, while Roger Federer claimed the honors the following two years."
