from the article..

"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."

Re: NADAL - ATP European player of the year 2005

Yes, I remember now that the award isn't just about how successful a European player is, it's to do with their co-operation and participation in European tournaments. Bearing in mind Federer has played, what, 12 tournaments in Europe since the end of 2003 and been forced to skip the indoor season altogether twice in a row, perhaps it's no surprise he wasn't going to get it for a third year running.

The Wit and Wisdom of the Tennis Journalist, Indian Wells 2004

ROGER FEDERER: Yeah, I remember this one time when I went on a vacation on the Maldives. That was in the year 2001, I think. I went to this spa. I went to walk around with my girlfriend. I walk in, and we want to book a spa. This guy goes, "AHH, I remember you. You beat Sampras. I saw you on TV." That was like, really, how can you remember me? This guy has probably never been off his island and still knows me. I was a little bit shocked. Then I went to play tennis with him because he was actually the tennis teacher. It was nice.

Q. Were you naked at the time in the spa?

ROGER FEDERER: No. It was at the front desk. I didn't walk in naked.
