How does winning a tournament with LITTLE value to the players anymore, and has lost just about all of its prestige among players on tour today (at least if you compare it to years past) make one the player of the year?
Hell most of the top players just "shut it down" after the USO anymore
It sucks to say because I have always loved the YEC, it has the importance of almost CRAPOLA anymore.
The only player that seems to actually take the YEC seriously anymore is Federer. He seems to be the only one that has a greater appreciation for the year end championships and its lineage
