No, but the press sure are

As if it matters that none of the top three were in Paris this year, most of them never play it in the first place and Roger has lost the last two years to Monfils and Benneteau anyway

Roger or Qureshi. It would be nice if a non-big name won it.

Federer, for the classy, gentlemanly way he has of always trashing Murray and Djokovic.

NOT Djokovic.

Maybe Djoker could win 2011 NIkolai Davydenko/David Savic Unsportsmanlike Award?

Good sportsmanship isn't a net thing- even if he's a nice guy in private, publicly insulting/detracting from other players should pretty much disqualify you for and award on sportsmanship.

Yeah, the press are like that with everyone. If a press person said something to Djokovic about his season vs Fed's best seasons, it doesn't give him license to point out Fed was dominated on clay even in best seasons by Nadal, while Djokovic has managed to beat the second-best clay-specialist of all time twice on his favorite surface. That's a tard argument to have, beneath a champion.

Well then, I expect that we'll hear you've written to at least everycone of the other 1000 ATP Players and instructed them thereto
