Though he has no chance, I would give it to John Isner.

Anyone other than Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal, Roger Federer.

Tsonga is actually a great sport, Del Po as well. Actually, there are tons of players who don't resort to gamesmanship and refrain from being passive aggressive in interviews. Nishikori has been a great sport in all the matches I've seen from him, whether he's upsetting number 1's or being trounced by Murray and Fed.

Qureshi. Would be absolutely pathetic if he doesn't take the award, but then the ATP itself is pathetic so...

Disgraceful what this award has become.

Fed is such a catty, classless person. He sounds like one of his tards. Trying detract from Djokovic's win in the US Open and now this? None of his competitors tried to detract from his wins in Paris and Basel by pointing out he didn't have to beat a single top 5 player to achieve them.

That quote from Federer

I like the guy, I always will because he's a tennis player first and foremost and he does his job extremely well. But some of his comments are really not well-thought of.

On topic: I don't think Federer, Nadal or Djokovic should be winning this award, but basically it's become an extension of the YEC no. 1 award so I expect Djokovic will. Tbh, Djokovic may be a clown when he wins but he is the most gracious loser out of the three so I'm fine with that.

Yeah, Djokovic is never sour after a loss, out of respect for his opponents. His celebrations aren't the classiest, but it's much, much harder to lose with grace than to win with it.

the display of what gladiatorial sportsmanship the game of pro tennis has the ability to produce was found inside one match between mahut and isner... i believe this one show, such an example of a fair yet tough-as-nails battle, was enough to secure a joint winner for 2010... their ongoing friendship beyond the event is testament to the respect gained and new friendship forged in the heat of battle... in 2010 there was nothing even remotely close to this in terms of the widespread promotion of sportsmanship...

but, like you say, it is a disgrace what this award has become... so much goes overlooked...

it could even be a tool used to discourage unsportsmanlike conduct and gamesmanship by the current top 2 in the sport... so how irrelevant has this award become then when it so blatantly encourages such a blight on the game...?

Maybe what they should do: instead of allowing the players who walk and talk and play tennis with the nominees for the majority of any year vote on who gets the award, the ATP should let the award be voted on by the posters on MTF, the majority of whom will never have got within 1000 metres of the nominated players, will never have talked with them, spent any time with them, played with them, but are experts on them - from a distance.

No, how about make it a proper sportsmanship award like it was initially. If they are actually serious then Qureshi should win this easily, but why nominate Federer, Nadal and Djokovic if it's not a popularity contest? As great as these players are which is undisputed, that's not the point of this award.
