Sam Querrey for me.

Del Potro, Zverev and Gulbis are people who will be strong contenders in the next few months.

Yes that's for sure. Dlouhy could have if he won but his bandwagon is only a TT one so that doesn't count. Fish has chances though now.

That's true Although not many will dare to call a Slam victory against Feds a fluke.

Man, I shouldnt even be talking... I don't even watch tennis as much anymore... (I got married!!! not, I'm just lazy ), ... so, I dunno actually? Is it still a big hooplah when Roddick loses? Or do people not care anymore b/c he's not the SHY_ZUH anymore... SHY-ZUH, btw, phonetically is German for shit I think. I would appreciate if someone enlightened me on how to spell it

Re: 2007 edition: MTF Bandwagon Player of the Month

Yeah, I know he couldn't get the win lots of people craved, but Murray deserves a nomination at least I think. The number of people now saying he's a ''top 5 player'' seems to have shot up, especially when they would've laughed at the idea not too long ago.

Re: 2007 edition: MTF Bandwagon Player of the Month

I think Guccione has gotten the most brutal bandwagon this month, so far. After he reached the final in Adelaide and beat Nadal in Sydney, there were even threads asking if he would make the top 20. Then he lost to Rochus and no one talks about him anymore. Typical bandwagoning behaviour.

Re: 2007 edition: MTF Bandwagon Player of the Month

There are so many player who will make it to top5 these days.
Djokovic and Murray are clearly for the title this month.

Based on the number of people that have magically decided that Murray now has talent. I think he's met just about all the criteria required to win this prestigious award.
