    Stefan Edberg Sportmanship Award:

    Del Potro, he is consistently one of the best in this department. He has some minor issues with calls but is always gracious in victory and defeat.

    Most Improved Player of the Year:

    Monaco, but I'm not as sure about this one.

    Newcomer of the Year:

    Klizan, but Griffin isn't too far behind.

    Comeback Player of the Year:

    I'll go with Baker, but Haas has been impressive as well.

    Stefan Edberg Sportmanship Award

    Roger Federer...12 years in a row....won't lose this award till he retires.

    Most Improved Player of the Year
    Jeremy Chardy (103-31). Would like to say Juan Monaco....but Chardy and Soeda were huge suprises.

    Newcomer of the Year
    David Goffin.....He was hyped and loved for his Federer fantasism.

    Comeback Player of the Year
    Brian Baker (456-62) Because of the Amercian Media hype, and the actual severity before his comeback. I never thought there was a guy who was hurt more by injuries than Tommy Haas, but I have been wronged.

    Tommy Haas had plenty of his comebacks. Matheiu as well.

    Can we count Rosol as newcomer of the year lol? Not like we knew who he was before you know what.

    Del Potro's my vote for the Edberg award, very classy fellow

    Sorry my mistake. I misread that as Fan Favorite award which he won 12 times in a row.

    Federer will win Sportman, Fan Fave and Player of the Year.

    Seems like Wimbledon is home to many upsets in the past few years

    Would Federer have regarded it an insult If he won This with RG 11?;)

    I never understand how Federer has won the Sportsmanship award. He has seemingly never applauded a nice shot of his opponents or said "good shot." He often seems to make excuses in defeat.

    I think he should win most improved this year.

    I wouldn't say he "often" makes excuses in defeat. He's usually gracious, but he does slip up now and then, ala the USO 2011, or Wimby 2010. Everybody's human. But this year he was very gracious after losing to Roddick in Miami or Murray at the Olympics for example, and he said nothing bad about Nadal or Djokovic this year to the best of my knowledge.

    As it is, I would give the sportsmanship award to Delpo, or Fed
    The rest in order: Goffin, Baker, and Monaco.
