i heard that there is an award for the most gentlemanly or ladylike player of the tournament. it is voted mainly by the press but also by the tournament officials and even players. but does anyone know what it is called. i want to check out how the winners are and the award for most stuck up player. i have heard that players in the former category have been lindsay davenport. while those in the later category have been marcello rios and yevgeny kafelnikov.

The lemon award was handed to Maria Sharapova, and the other one (I don't recall the name) to Roger Federer.
