Let me just put it this way. Any player not named Roger Federer will very likely decline the fake "honour" if they are chosen (they know the rest of the tour will laugh at them if they pip Rogi to the spot).
you have to wonder why there is more then one name on that list ( ok, it would´nt be excactly a "LIST" with only one name on it).
It´s called "Player of the year" - and facts are facts - end of story!!!!!!!!!!
