Milos Raonic, for donating as many top 10 wins as he does. What a guy.

So Federer's best sportsmanship moment this year was crying during the Wimbledon Final? What?

Well I don't know about the type of stuff that is apparently recognised by the sportsmanship award, but what came to mind for me for actual sportsmanship was Murray conceding points to Verdasco at FO. Of these, Cilic's is the best sportsmanship moment, though Dimitrov's is a good moment of decency.

It is so vomit inducing, the only thing you can do is laugh. Hopefully Dimitrov wins, he is the only one who actually deserves it.

Returning from a doping ban more successful than ever, the worst cheater I have ever seen play, and two not especially sportsmanlike but very marketable players. Damage control+marketing I see. Dimitrov probably deserves at most, if Nishikori or Cilic gets it the ATP should be sued for libel.

Unbiased tennis analyst Chris Kuerten tells it how it is

Even Nadal finishing the AO final and not retiring would be a more worthy (and understandable, given he is one of Fedal) sportsmanship moment than what basically amounts to "player plays in the Wimbledon final, is Federer". And I say that as a Nadal hater.
