it has to be said that Djokovic is a Midget in front of Federer in terms of Sportmanship. Federer has rarely whined about the number of matches,physical and emotional exhaustion etc.

Federer is an epitomy of Sportsman spirit.

Qureshi would've been a good winner, but of course the GOAT wins it. The best player of all time and one of the most sporting (on court) of all time. Great stuff, glad he won instead of those two cheating fakers.

If Nadal would have won Stefan Edberg Sportmanship Award then Edberg would have committed suicide.

Obviously Federer deserves it ahead of Nadal & probably Djokovic too, who is an exceptionally gracious loser but in other respects somewhat dubious. But ahead of everybody, so many times? Unlike Djokovic, he is not a particularly gracious loser, even on court, and often whines at the umpire (usually about Hawkeye) when the match isn't going his way. I can't help feeling the award goes to the most sporting high-profile player. Somebody like Baghdatis surely displays even better sportsmanship.

This is the problem with the award.

The problem is the organization or players (not sure how it works) that nominate the same names over and over again. That is the rigged part.

Not at all. I'm just proving a point that Federer is by no means the best sporstman on court. Off it we already know he's one of the worst.

Except that finger wagging was done when the match was already OVER. So technically, it's still off court. On court sportsmanship are things that directly affect the way the match goes.

I guess you need to spread the word to his fellow players then; they obviously don't know him as well as you do

i have never seen a more protective fan woman than you......i thought you had some beef only with me because i pissed you off a couple of times stating just truths but apparently it seems like you can't digest anyone who doesn't agree with your blind worshiping......remember that not everyone worships your weak goddess......

there are other players who owned him on the biggest stages and have shown tenfold more respect in losses......now stop gathering your fellow worshipers and stop attacking nole fan......

Nike marketing at work...
Funny how Fed gets so called sportsmanship awards when he admits that he doesnt even notice anyone else and regularly downtalks after every loss.

i think it's the bribe that does it......you never know......when a few top 100 players are protected when they are caught in dope tests, there is a distinct possibility that lesser players are bribed to vote for that swiss in this useless rigged award called stefan edberg "sportsmanship" award.....

ITF and nike collectively run this "goat" campaign of theirs and they need to strengthen that campaign as much as possible to drag more number of novices towards the sport every year......

i never thought tennis would turn into such a whorish and utterly commercial sport......
