Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal, Roger Federer and Aisam-Ul-Haq Qureshi will contend for the 2011 Sportsmanship Award named after Stefan Edberg. Mauro Cappiello, founder and admin of STE...fans, the best tribute to Stefan Edberg on the web, wrote this interesting editorial on who the ideal winner is.

Qureshi, no doubt. The others got the nomination because they are the number 1, 2 and 3 in the world. One of them will win only because they are a more recognizable name,

Sadly this award is too often given to the current world #1 instead of those who truly deserve it. Imo Qureshi should get the award this year for his anti-war efforts.

Meh, just give it to Federer again.

Nadal doesn't deserve it after this year and Djokovic most certainly doesn't.

The article is very biased against Federer and Nadal, with the examples from previous years, not 2011. Not mentioning Djokovic at all.
Although I agree with the author's choice, would be awful if Aisam doesn't win this nomination :yeah:

If this award wants to redeem itself after the clown desicison to give it to Nadal, then they should give it to either Federer or Qureshi. Neither of the cheating fakers deserve to options for this, let alone win it.

Yes, cheating fakers.

They fake timeouts to throw off their opponent. They cheat: bounce the ball too many times, take fake timeouts to throw their opponents off some more. I think those two words describe them perfectly.
