If you are including doubles, he'd still not rank among the 10-15 best players.

I agree it's more a nationalist than a rational choice. There's simply no way that Jakupovic would logically feature in the poll that is going to be started.

I agree. Belgium had a pretty good year on the ITF Tour, and Mertens looks very promising. I am eager to see how he'll transition to the Challenger Tour next year.

Edu? Roshardt? Are you for real?

http://www.itftennis.com/mens/player...ayer=100005651

Really?

And Cervenak?

I think A. Balazs is definitely a revelation of the season though.

Agreed about Roshardt, I know he is not the player of the year, but improved a lot and didn't play that much, started playing qualies and now is seeded in tournaments he enters. OK, many others did the same and were more impressive.

Cervenak has a nice record

Re: 'Futures Player of the Year 2008' Thread [Accepting Nominations]

Although I am not nominating them I would like to give notable mentions to British players James Ward [ITF Profile ] & Daniel Evans [ ITF Profile ] - definitely two to keep an eye on in 2009.

I'd vote for De Armas, in fact this dude had a very long break, needs to be credited for this comeback.

Are we voting now or only nominating?
