Out of Pim Pim and Berdych, the winner has to be the latter. Not only he did he beat Nadal, but the sympathy factor is now coming in because of how he was treated by the crowd in the next match. Add to that the post-match interview, where people are now :drool: over his every word.

I guess Pim Pim didn't win enough matches for people to really sit up and notice, and his retirement from Madrid meant that people forgot about him during the hectic week on MTF.

There is a reason why this thread exists and PimPim defeating 2 top 10 players in 2 weeks. Tursunov for his blog, Baghdatis for his run at the AO and Berdych previously etc and well it's like Berdych hasn't been direct and blunt before, then again it's about context.

I wouldn't know I can safely say that I haven't been on a bandwagon for a lot of years, it wouldn't be allowed where I come from. The Tursunov one was just too obvious to be ignored.

This is what I said in the opening post of this thread.

Yes, this is the wonderful MTF tradition for a player all of a sudden gains a legion of fans or have a over a very short period of time, through either a big win or a big performance in an event. The multitude of threads about the same player and the usually over a very short period of time proclaiming greatness or future greatness, to winning Slams without losing a game.

Once they have gained them, then when the results to wane usually in a very short period of time then they go to the status overrated or disappear just as quickly. Yes, there are true fans of these players and they know who they are for the most part.

The first paragraph sums up Berdych for October perfectly.

But speaking of bandwagoning, I would love that German guy Julian Reister to play second round against Federer in Basel. Young boy, can be considered as pretty, has got some game and is improving quickly. If he wins his 1st round and isn't scared of Fed, then the Suzuki-like day of fame is close.

MTF Bandwagon Player of the Month

Yes, this is the wonderful MTF tradition for a player all of a sudden gains a legion of fans or have a over a very short period of time, through either a big win or a big performance in an event. The multitude of threads about the same player and the usually over a very short period of time proclaiming greatness or future greatness, to winning Slams without losing a game.



I still vote for Pim-Pim to be October's winner. Tomas was too divisive this month, while he did gain legions of fans (like me), he also turned off a few (like some people in MTF). My idea of a Bandwagon Player is someone who has been generally (if not unanimously) well-liked/admired for the given month, which Pim-Pim fits for October.

Action Jackson

As I said there is a week to go before I decide anything about this, but there are 2 strong candidates.

Action Jackson
11-01-2006, 12:31 AM
This month was a tough one to decide. Initially it wasn't cause there was a big outpour of support for Pim Pim Johansson and with his big win over Nadal considering how little he has played and beating PMK in Madrid, there was a lot of support for Pimpim.

Honourable to mention to Fernando Gonzalez who made 3 finals in a row and even got a thread about why he can't beat Federer when the answers are obvious to that question.

The winner is Tomas Berdych, the fact that so many shhhhhhhhh avatars appeared and also he bitchslapped Nadal and gave it to a hostile crowd and he got a whole legion of fans cause of a gesture, though not quite as good as getting them for a blog like Tursunov.

Yes, it was a slight recency effect, but the whole Madrid crowd shenanigans and the shhhhh got Berdych over the line to win this months award.

Although I think another honourable mention should go to Igor Kunitsyn, a player virtually no one's heard of prior to this month, but because of his unbelievable streak in Moscow and St. Pete, earned lots of Vcash for many MTF posters (myself included, hehe).

Tomas has done well to win it twice and this one was competitive, but he pulled way at the end.

Winning a TMS title has gained him a lot of respect. Last year, everyone thought he was another Shuettler and insisted he would disappear. But with his work ethic and his consistent results, many are starting to believe in him.

Well I know it's early, but this is as good as anytime to announce the winner for Novemeber of this award.

It was all looking good for the Ukranian Davydenko to win this award, but he was upstaged in Shanghai by James Blake who stole the award from under his nose.

When you have threads like Blake is the real number 2 and the like for Blake, as spectacular player as he can be. Also he has never won a TMS event, made a SF of a Slam or won a 5 set match all things that Davydenko has done already. The Blake one is always simmering near the surface, but it boiled this month.

The candidates for the award

Tursunov :

This guy was very special cause even though he improved his ranking and results this year. Then again the fact that he played his 1st year without major injuries was overlooked.

At the start of 2006 he had about 15 fans and it's not like Tursunov wasn't funny before that or he wasn't the same guy in 2001 or 2002 when he was injured for so long and most people didn't give a crap about him.

His effort was very special indeed, he got the monthly bandwagon award for his blog and not his tennis and it has continues.

Baghdatis: All credit to Merton for this one.

Case Study: The lifecycle of the Marcos bandwaggon

Note that significant events get overlooked in the process. For example, Marcos played some excellent tennis at IW against Gaudio and Berdych, but what most people remember is that he got bagelled against Nadal. Similarly, he made the mistake of going to Houston and he suffered a minor injury there that affected his preparation for the clay court season but people remember that he sucks on clay. After he lost early at RG he was promptly forgotten, nobody noticed that he made the semis on a grass event. Then Wimbledon comes, and, miracle, miracle!! Marcos is reborn when he defeats Hewitt.

Berdych:

Well he has been around for a little bit of time and has shown plenty of potential though quite a few dumb defeats as well. He had his loyal fanbase for sure.

For beating Nadal twice this year and the fun and games in Madrid.

This is for you bandwagon fans.

Voted for Dima as he hit my radar more this year with the blog and DC. Berdy second although I noticed him when he took out Fed at the Olympics 04.

None of them for me, but Tursunov comes closest.

Baghdatis and Berdych got it for tennis reasons mostly whereas Mitya didn't.

IMO, among those 3, only Marcos got it for tennis reasons. If it wasn't for that one gesture in Madrid Berdych wouldn't even be in this poll. That's why I voted for Baghdatis. :)

The only one of these guys whose bandwagon I personally jumped on was Baghdatis...

.... but I still voted for Tursunov because I think his bandwagon was the biggest and most vocal. :p

People wanted to shag Berdych when he defeated Nadal the first time this year and he got the monthly award twice and it wasn't for gestures, therefore he got enough attention with his tennis, though the gesture helped.

Voted for Dima, hey I'm even shallow enough to admit that Dima did not interest me a whole lot before the whole blog. That makes him the ultimate bandwagon player. :)

Loved the shhhhhhhhh in Madrid, and his 3 straight wins v. Nadal. Unfortunately, he's still Tomas--couldn't back it up the next round.

Regardless, my vote goes to Berdych.

Congratulations to Tursunov for winning the prestigious award of Bandwgon Player pf the Year.

It would have been good if it was for his tennis, but that was just a sideline activity to his other activities.

We salute the first Bandwagon Player of the Year and it will be back in 2007 the monthly awards.

so my question is, who are Rivalry and Mr. Disney.
Also I think that G.Whitler should get the Thread of the Year Trophee as this is the funniest shit I have read in a long time.

Mr Disney is the new ATP chairman.

Rivalry was the buzzword at that time, and people key falling for it.
