Rather than having tennis players earn their rankings by playing all those tough tournament matches, we are going to determine these players’ rankings through a democratic voting process. A few words about the contestants:

TonLars is a great player – recently ranked inside top 50 in NCAA DII, this stud is already playing some professional tournaments when injury-free.

Jollyroger is a great player and a proud owner of many Wilson racquets. He was recently ranked inside top 10 in a major geographic region (USTA section) in men’s opens and enjoys playing in US National Opens as well. He lives on an island, so I’m guessing he enjoys proximity of the ocean.

serveitup911 is a big time baller with an outstanding record in a high position of a tough NCAA DI school, and a huge backhand. He is also a great golfer, and absolutely loves the sea and boating.

As for the others, I only know that ShcMad hits the ball so hard that everyone around him wonders why, boojay is his nemesis, drakulie must be pretty solid, since it seems these days everyone and their brother is flying to Florida to hit with him, SoBad is a 2.0 moonballer who got nominated by a noob fan, and the other guys are also good players I am sure and like boating, etc.

Enjoy!:)

I really like you. Let me talk to the other doctor, I am sure we'll work something out about that position in the psycho office.

I did my very best to put in a word to Dr. Zets, but he's a tough man, so unless you post your chefing experience in the office thread, it may be difficult to convince him that you're better than Hot Sauce for the job...

ServeitUp911 and Cauvilito are two guys that stand out. TonyLars is also probably up there. There are other guys who have posted stuff that makes me think they're possibly even way better, but can't remember them.

Someone should make a perpetual video thread and get a mod to ensure that the posts are only videos (or perhaps have the thread originator edit everyone's video into the first post, to keep things organized)... I don't want to have to go searching!

These were nominations, I think there are some 5.5+ players who aren't listed. Didn't bother digging them up. Oh well.

Sup2Dresq, is by far the best player I have seen from the boards. (people just don't know).

Moz, you are a damn solid player as well. I didn't realize you were nominated. :(

Ha! Your check is in the mail Drakulie!

There is too much temptation at your little piece of tennis heaven: Beer, Beer, Party, Beer, Lack of Sleep.... then play tennis. It was a wonder I could hit a ball.

Kind words though.

*Laughing a little inside* I think they put me on the poll as a joke. My vote for Best Player goes to my "jefe" Sup2DresQ.

IF I get to visit Bs. As., I'll let you know! (even though I have no idea when I'm gonna visit). I haven't played on red clay in 6 years!

So we have to do our own research under each of the user names you chose to put up?

Yeah, I actually dont know anything about these other guys, except for Jolly I did see him hit a little in a video he posted. My videos I posted are about 3 years old, so itd be better for you to look at my tournament results and wins in the last few years. I would be interested to know where some of these guys play actually and how they do, itd be fun. I figured out for myself that "serveitup911" plays or played tennis at Furman, which is a decent Division 1 tennis team. Some "SydneyJim" guy, who is not a nominee, seems to be playing some Futures tournaments and must also be a good player.

Any info on others would be fun to read if someone knows.

yes, Furman is a solid DI team, and 911 plays fairly high up on the roster

I was a DI player too you know, are you discriminating based on gender here?!! Anyway, I voted for Drakulie, he's always been my tw homeboy and he voted for me for best female. So, we're cool.

Meg, nobody's discriminating anybody, it's all about categories and nominations.

P.S. Why do you speak of your DI in past tense?

I know, I was just messing with you, and using the opportunity to flaunt my accomplishment of making it to DI. I was kidding, laugh a little please :)

Past tense, I am taking a year off this year.
