ATP announces 2007 ATP Award winners

Roger Federer and Bob and Mike Bryan are the big winners in the 2007 ATP Awards, which were announced today in Miami on the eve of the Sony Ericsson Open.

For the fourth consecutive year, Federer won both the Player of the Year Award and Stefan Edberg Sportsmanship Award Presented by Stanford. Additionally, fans gave Federer the ATPtennis.com Fans’ Favorite Award Presented by RICOH for the fifth consecutive year.

The Bryan brothers, who last year finished as the No. 1 doubles team for the fourth time in five years, won the Doubles Team of the Year Award Presented by Stanford for the third consecutive year. The Bryans also were voted ATPtennis.com Fans’ Favorite for the third consecutive year.

Other winners include defending Sony Ericsson Open champion Novak Djokovic of Serbia, the first player to clinch Most Improved Player of the Year honors in back-to-back years; Frenchman Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, named Newcomer of the Year for his Ranking climb from No. 212 to a year-end finish of No. 43 with consistent results in ATP and Challenger level play; and Russian Igor Andreev, Comeback Player of the Year after returning from a left knee injury in 2006 to finish in the Top 50 for the third time in four years.

Ivan Ljubicic was named Arthur Ashe Humanitarian of the Year in recognition of his support of individual, smaller charities in his native Croatia and his sponsorship of the Monaco Special Olympics, donating his entire Davis Cup prize money to those charities as well as playing exhibitions to raise money.

Federer is undeserving POTY. Should've gone to Oscar Hernandez or Willy Canas.

Pity the players then -- who are around him far more frequently than we are -- for not knowing that and for continuously voting for him, 4 years running.
All those players are obviously so very bloody intimidated by Fed's Inimitable Aura that they don't even dare to speak up their true opinions, eh... :retard: :p :lol:

Might well be that he's in fact a rather nice guy, but I guess the Vulture/Hyena/Orc-squad around here will always be able to twist his words/actions to prove the opposite. Oh sure.

Idiot Haters. :rolleyes:

Of course, anyone who doesn't think that Fed is oh so honorable and sportsmanlike is automatically an idiotic hater?

Different people have different opinions and I for one think he is extremely fake. But I gotta give him credit b/c he's obviously good at faking. People have voted for him.

CassL - you are obviously extremely prejudiced and envious about Federer. Well considering his amazing accomplishments, that's easy.

He got the sportsmanship award for 2007. That's last year, so stop whining. He was still able to "fool" the other players then. To make you feel better, he'll definitely fall to the last place come 2008 awards.
