Being nice goes hand in hand with sportsmanship. And while most players behave well most of the time, few players are consistently nice regardless how they feel on court. Nieminen and Baghdatis are such players.

Granted he has said some wrong things in his interviews. However, I think this award relates to fair play on the court. And that is where he triumphs over others in my humble opinion. He does not allow any time wasting, celebrating over unforced errors of opponents or offset the opponent in any manner, sort or form. He just plays tennis , plain and simple. This might be the catalyst to him winning the award multiple times

Misrepresentation at the highest level. Like most of the top players, he doesn't do that on a regular basis, if at all.

Qureshi deserves it really

federer- yeah, he's a great ambassador- but ultimately what he's done pales in comparisson to Qureshi

nadal and nole- seriously guys- 2 guys who have fucked up tennis with cheating, time wasting, fake injuries- medical timeouts and shit play?

fuck that- murray before them

^^Agree re. Nadal, but Nole at least is mostly a gracious loser and I like that he's the only top player to applaud his opponents' brilliant shots.

Yeah he only waives his little finger and celebrates like he's the new number 1.

The number of times you've brought up that 3-second event - man, that loss must have really hurt

It's about as bad as MuzzahLovah's obsession with Fed's comments about Murray's Asian swing.
