What a great leap from Kei!
Btw, is Kei eligible for the ATP new comer award?
If yes, do you think he can win? Or Del Potro already got this in his bag or he is no longer eligible since he is not a rookie?
Waaahh!!!! Im so confused! lol Bottom line is, I hope Kei Wins!
You see, i think JDP deserves more the most improved player award, rather than the new comer. But that way he played 2008 he probably deserves both.
Sorry for the late reply, Rafkei.
I discussed the topic earlier, and since it was Tsonga that won the award last year, I think it's more likely that JMDP will win the award, with Murray as the most improved player (last year it was Djokovic).
But then last year there wasn't any teenager who made as big an impact as Kei (OK, Gulbis' run at USO was a bit similar to what Kei did there this year but he didn't win a title), so maybe Kei still has a chance.
I forgot when the award will be announced. Is it January or March?
