"There are two men who stand out for me following their performances in 2011, and they are Novak Djokovic and Roger Federer."

I do not believe the standard at the top of the game is improving, and I know I am pretty much alone in thinking that.

props for that honesty. 2010 was a train wreck, 2011 not too much better

Why is Fed in front of Nadal this year? I mean Rafa won more and more important stuff

Because Nadal made news for being Djokovic's bridesmaid all year and huffing and lucking his way to the French Open title.
I dont think Federer has been a "winner" this year either, inspite of his year end brilliance. And Murray despite his so caled 'improvement' at the Slams really has done jack, he didnt get any closer at breaking his duck.
Essentially, apart from Djokovic, none of the top 4 were winners this year.
I think what Reed means (not that it means much as its coming from him) is that Djokovic was the No. 1 guy of the year and the only guy who looked likely to (and did) beat him at a big stage was Federer who himself had a run of brilliance in the fall.
Makes sense really. Amazingly.

Federer made tennis a winner this year because he was Djokovic's biggest challenger at the slams, RG and USO SFs were the highlights of the year, hence Federer is a winner this year. If it wasn't for Federer, the slams would have been boring and a foregone conclusion. He made them exciting.

A Grand Slam means more than all the MM titles Federer won with mug fields.

Highlight of the year was old Fed toying with birdshit at bercy.

Nadal won RG,MC and played 2 GS finals....why not then put Murray with 5 titles in second place?

Reed: "Djokovic has to be the player of the year if I am picking just one, for all that he achieved and the unbelievable transformation in his game."
:lol: :lol:
He tried as hard as he could, he had to mention Federer with Novak in the opening paragraph, he couldn't bring himself to celebrate Novak alone. He had to use the word 'if'. He also ignored Rafa's achievements completely. But I'm satisfied with this phrase. I never thought Reed would ever write anything like this. Congratulations, Simon. It must have hurt like hell. But what could you do with a season like Novak's? :devil:
