The Devil's Show - 2020 TTW Awards: All Nomination Categories *vote here*

Third Serve

Talk Tennis Guru
You have a point. I am curious which section in Forums have more popularity.
Well, just looking at the overall numbers, it appears that GPPD is the most popular section with 111.8K threads and 4 million individual posts, though I believe some of those include the Match Results sub-forum. I was actually thinking about this too and I made a little table sorted by most individual posts:

Forum - SectionThreadsPosts
General Pro Player Discussion - Competitive Tennis Talk111.8K4M
Racquets - Tennis Equipment84.1K1.4M
Odds and Ends - Miscellaneous26.5K1.2M
Tennis Tips/Instruction - Miscellaneous40.2K931.6K
Strings - Tennis Equipment46.4K600.5K

Adult League and Tournament Talk - Competitive Tennis Talk9.5K290.5K
For Sale or Trade - Classified87.3K264.5K
Health and Fitness - Miscellaneous11K179.6K

Now, the big problem could be that some forums weren't created until recently, skewing some of the numbers, but I'm not sure how to verify that.

A special shout out to:

@Meles for always being entertaining, fun and nice. Eternally optimistic.

@RaulRamirez for always being thoughtful, interesting, intelligent and fair-minded.

Two great members of TTW! Among many, many others.

Thank you for that, BeatlesFan -- you've always been kind to me, even if we've disagreed here and there. (And I am a huge fan of The Beatles as well...)

I haven't yet - maybe, later - voted (enjoying the poll) - but have to somehow mention the best breakout performance on either tour.

Iga Swiatek at RG had a remarkably dominant run, and everything about her is quite promising.
 

TripleATeam

G.O.A.T.
Tennis awards

Player of the year - ATP and WTA: ATP - Djokovic, WTA - Barty or Osaka
Match of the year: Djokovic-Thiem AO
Tournament of the year: AO for quality, USO for drama.
Moment of the year: Djokovic being DQ'd in the USO, meaning a new slam champ would be guaranteed.
Comment of the year: "Nadal has no chance at beating this Novak" - RG 2020.
Breakout performance of the year: For both - Swiatek winning the USO. For ATP - Sinner, RG.
Biggest upset/shock: Thiem slaughtering Medvedev in the USO SF. I expected a great match, it was one-sided as hell.
Best rivalry on tour: Gotta be Nadal-Djokovic. No insanely close matches this year, but the story is still all about them. Possibly Thiem-Djokovic or Thiem-Nadal after that.
Biggest False Dawn (biggest disappointment): Tiafoe?

NonP

Hall of Fame
I didn't even have to say that self voting is allowed.
In that case....

Best analyst of all things serve: @NonP
Best exponent of comparative era analysis: @NonP
One and only connoisseur of sublime tennis: @NonP
Bestest film critic: @NonP (Kael who?)
One and only aesthete period: @NonP
Humblest: @NonP

And since I'm also the most fair, objective and generous one here are a few extra nominations:

Player of the year: COVID-19 (now and for the foreseeable future)
Match of the year: I'll let Triumph take over:


(BTW if you happen to be one of the fortunate souls who have yet to experience this greatest of all comedy skits, you're in for a side-splitting treat.)

Tournament of the year: the Balkans-trekking lawsuit that was the Adria Tour
Moment/biggest shock of the year: you know what it is
Comment of the year: Also sprach the Socrates of our time:


Breakout performance of the year, man or woman: Iga Świątek by far (try to name any 19-year-old upstart that grabs his/her 1st major with a stunning 75% of games won)
Best rivalry on tour: PPTA vs. ATP/WTA
Biggest False Dawn (biggest disappointment): Fedal's predictable-AF reaction to Novak and Pop's laudable initiative



As for the TTW categories... just one nom will do:

Bestest
Tennis
Forum
Evah!

(It also happens to be the only one left standing, but who's counting.)

Well, just looking at the overall numbers, it appears that GPPD is the most popular section with 111.8K threads and 4 million individual posts, though I believe some of those include the Match Results sub-forum. I was actually thinking about this too and I made a little table sorted by most individual posts:

Now, the big problem could be that some forums weren't created until recently, skewing some of the numbers, but I'm not sure how to verify that.
4th column needed = Avg Thread Quality.

I suspect that we'll find an inverse relationship with forum size.

They aren't really helping me with Pancho though. The Russian poster ranks him #1 while the British poster ranks him #6.

Maybe I should just trust @Lleytonstation and admit that Pancho simply played club tennis.

no, i guess the better decision is to place him in number 3 (golden middle) since both of them are great masterminds so in your shoes i wouldn't be so sure who i should trust more

Call the tennis of his day whatever you want, but Pancho is an ATG by any definition. Perhaps not in the same category as Laver or Rosewall, but still an ATG.
 
without clay title he can't be, simple math
I guess you mean French Pro. Helps that it was held twice before he turned 30. Lost the 1956 final in 5 to peak Trabert and 1958 SF to peak Hoad, who lost the final to Rosewall. Not too bad, don't think he'd be much behind Laver prime to prime on clay. Rosewall yes, Muscles was the clay goat of those times.

The thing is, Pancho has been hugely under-appreciated for many generations, and it's right that his name be brought up as a legend of the sport - since on the surface, his 2 slam titles make him a borderline great at best. It's right that it is recognised how he dominated the pro game for years, and it's right that he is considered well inside the all time top 10, and possibly top 5.

What's not right is the posters who go too far in the other direction, and proclaim him the GOAT with no flaws, and a man who supposedly has both the greatest dominance and longevity in history - all the while talking about Pancho like he was part of the Four Yorkshiremen sketch, growing up playing tennis with his hand on a dirt court, yet rising to become the world's best.

My aim is only to counter those posters' hyperbole.

I'm sure some players who aimed to reach the top 100 ended up reaching the top 100. So should they garner player of the year consideration?
Lets big them up. If they overachieved to make top 100 why not. Nobody would have predicted Nadal to get 20 Majors. So rightfully his year is massive
