After all, I'd say Ferrer was the more notable player of these two this year, even from international point of view. He had a very good year that was also the best in his career. Rafa played only half a season, and that was on his usual form, nothing exceptional. Yeah, he won RG and three TMSs plus reached AO final but that would've been more remarkable if he hadn't already had so much success.
That's quite ridiculous reasoning. Just because Rafael Nadal is usually that brilliant and often even more so, doesn't take away from his achievements when judging an award from a neutral standpoint, like any award should be judged.

I think that any true professional would rather win an award on true merit, rather than charity. The award must feel somewhat hollow.

Not that any of this matters, I don't think that anyone particularly cares about this.

Seriously though I don't see how representing his country in the Olympics should be a reason he won this award at all, several Spaniards represented their country.

definitely becoming something like trolling mentor. I am too old already to waste time and creativity to troll the threads. From now will just be opening the threads, give a bait and evaluate the skills of my students. The best ones will get authorization to share my thoughts in moments when I am banned
