    It's been a long year and decade ladies and gents - and we all know that every legitimate institution must have some form of appreciation for those who are involved in it. Those who have gone through struggle, tears, success, and trolls to achieve what they have. At TTW we are united through one simple common characteristic, a love for tennis. That degree of love varies from minimal in some cases to passionate in others (or as we like to refer to them as...3.0 club players). What keeps people coming back is the people here, many great, cool, genuine people are all over this site and express their opinions and even meet each other in real life! Many friends have been made through this site and it is great to see, look at the TW chapters threads and you'll find just about everyone is welcoming and most are lovely to chat with. Hell look at Canadian Chic's thread, almost 14,000 posts of people just conversing with each other and caring about their lives!
    The people are great and those who set up the site did a great job making sure it is friendly and accessible for those of all ages. Sure there have been many disagreements and even fights but that's to be expected on the internet and in person as well.

    So that is why the TTW awards are here, to give appreciation to the members of this site who have given time to make it a great experience for all involved. Of course there are rules involved..

    RULES

    1. No awards or nominations intended to insult other people, one awards thread was pulled for that years back. So basically use common sense.

    2. Each vote will be kept track of and updated on this first post in the thread, voting ends on the first day of the pro tennis season in January. You can nominate more than one person for the same award and also can nominate the same person for multiple awards. It would be nice if you didn't vote for yourself though haha.

    3. Err I think that's it really :)

    Just copy the template and add your votes there, you may suggest new awards as well.

    Yeah these are just the older ones that worked, you can suggest new awards as long as they're not too offensive.

    How about best Rants & Raves thread (i.e. Homeownership is overrated!)?
    Best flame war (i.e. Sampras' Peers >>>> Federer's Peers)?

    Haha, well yeah, we've not played much on this years game.

    The 3-0 thrashing of Man City by Roma does spring to mind though :razz:

    Next time I see you on this clash will happen, and it will certainly not be ending in your favour. If somehow it does it's just the bent refs, they don't seem to like me in this game.

    I predict a 5-1 for City (lol or me losing for the 20332930239th time against you but I can dream!)

    Yeah well, I think I deserve a bit of luck from the bent refs! What with Man City getting 2 very generous decisions a few weeks back against Chelsea, i'm more than owed them! :)

    The refs called off two clear penalties in the last game I played, I guess chopping players down from behind as the last defender isn't a foul these days.

    As for Chelsea those decisions were obviously 110% correct well done refs they were legends in that game except for that false corner call that led to Chelsea's lucky goal.

    However on Saturday with the offside goal and calling Bellamy of all people for a dive making us play with 10 men I think we all know whose side the refs are really on.

    And it certainly isn't City's! Clattenburg is a (insert word of choice here) and needs to be fired or forced to go ref some Newcastle games so they don't get promoted.

    Besides ILC being the prettiest, I would agree with every one of your "ME = best/most" assertions Frodette, but why stop there:

    -Most Wired/No Batteries Required: the human 12-volt: Frodo Baggins

    -Best Punctuation: a no-brainer: Frodo Baggins

    -Best ATP ("All The Pros") Groupie:
    the one who's seen more 'tennis-twinkies' than the towel man at Flushing Meadows and
    engaged in more atp-cyber-threesomes: Frodo Baggins

    -Best Prescriptions/Medicine Cabinet: !!<>>FRODO>BAGGINS!!>><!!!>>

    I nominate Drak as the GOAT of all time. with Malakas as close 2nd. and Drak as the best racket review person. Best Avatar as Fedace since you can't beat Stanford's alex clayton.
    and i have to stop there, i like to nominate about dozen others here since they deserve it but i dont' want to offend anyone by forgetting them.
    Ano is just great for string reviews and asians in general....
