What are you talking about?

Fed is NOT winning 16 slam at the age of 30, he won most of them when he was much younger.

And you still cannot seperate two simple, and yet very different concepts.

Your hatred of Fed really makes your mind dull.

What do you expect this is MTF after all.

I scratched my head when #2 got this award last year but perhaps there are things they're doing off court or behind the scenes that we don't know about that the other players consider good sportsmanship. I doubt any of these players have a gun put to their head telling them they have to give this award to Fed or #2. Both Fed and #2 were re-elected as president and vice president of the players council so obviously they're doing something right in the eyes of the other players.

And Nadal versus Fish the other day... it was so obvious that he felt sick and had some gastroenteritis. Of course he needed the toilet break! Did you want him to shit his pants? Jesus, people you are so unreasonable it's not even funny.

As long as the inability to differentiate the genuine cases (the ones most want allowed) from the abuses (the ones most want banned) it will raise issues. In many ways players' manipulation of the rules has triggered the hostility to it, but the genuine cases mean it would be inappropriate to change any of the rules stopping these various breaks although the injury time out rule was tightened owing to abuses.

as usual blind arse loving from the blind breed......nothing less, nothing more, nothing different......

travesty is one world that came to mind when i heard that stefan edberg award was once again handed to the wily old witch targeting and attacking young slamless players like murray all the time......

the award's credibility has reached zero today with it being handed to this disgraceful loser once again......either suspend this award or just let a knowledgeable panel elect the winner......

either atp players are morons or ITF are heavily bribing lesser atp players to vote for federina to strengthen their farce "goat" campaign further and draw even more no. of clueless new fans to the sport of tennis......

whatever, AJ... just WHUT-ever. I highlighted the relevant part of your post that I was responding to. Now you ignore my rebuttal and focus on the other aspect of your original post.
But I'm not gonna let the bs story go. It's mutating to where people think Fed walked up to the net on 30-0 on Davy's serve, pulled out his dick, pissed on Davy's side of the court and then forced Davy to wipe it up with his shrit and then put the shirt back on.

If you want to criticize the nomination process, fine. But don't think you're gonna sneak in that little dig at Fed and not get challenged.

I agree.

It's pretty sad to see that such hatred could consume a person like SdG

Still fail to get it. It's not a sportsmanship award and hasn't been for ages, if you can't acknowledge that then it's just a circular argument.

Nadal should not have got it last season or ever be nominated for this award. Same for Federer this season, but when you have these 3 as the main contenders of course he will win out over Djokovic or Nadal as he has done for so many years now.

Yes, toilet breaks are never used to break opponents rhythm. Lets talk smack about the opponents as well, you can spin it however you want.

I remember that one quite clearly, Federer didn't take much longer than the normal break time between sets, maybe an extra 20 seconds or so

I think his comment on the sun moving from the court post-match was more in jest than anything, if he really did that to disturb Davydenko's rhythm he would have done it a lot more often in his career
