    Björn Phau (born October 4, 1979), is a German male tennis player. He reached a singles ranking of 59 in the world on June 19, 2006. He defeated Andre Agassi 7–5, 7–5 at the 2006 Dubai Tennis Championships. He plays right-handed. His main strengths are his movement, foot speed and fitness.

    He is the son of a German mother and an Indonesian father.

    At the 2007 SAP Open, Phau showed incredible sportsmanship while playing in the first round against Konstantinos Economidis. A ball that Phau hit to Economondis was out, but not called by the line judge. Economidis returned it, and Phau having seen that his ball was out, let the return go by, giving the point to Economidis. Phau went on to win the match and advance to the second round.

    2. Jesse Huta Galung (NED)

    ended in Quaifying final by Capdeville

    Talking about sportsmanship... Fabrice Santoro is such a sore of loser when Roddick rocketed a serve in front of his face

    In the past when "rally points" didn't present, some badminton players did it too.
    If any wrong call to the opponent, they served wide or short to give back the ball to the opponent.
