I appreciate the noms everyone. Great community here and responsible for some of the funniest moments of my year personally. This is a really nice idea @Doctor/Lawyer Red Devil - some positivity to balance out the constant negativity that TTW discussions bring (y) I’ll make my list when I get some time


Nah, I liked him when I was a kid (mainly bc I didn’t like Roddick) but soured on him post 2010 or so. I do defend him tho. I know Djokovic the most out of the Big 3 bc I’ve seen his entire prime (unlike Fedals) but I just don’t have that emotional connection to any of these guys… the thing I like about tennis is that I don’t get nervous or upset watching it unlike my team sports, so I purposefully aim to keep it that way.

@Poisoned Slice and @ffw2 there’s your answer. I’m Nadalgirl26. 15 years later lol.
Sounds good. :)

We know who this is lol

But you're in good company as a third of the user base here is a dupe account. (y):)

Breakout performance of the year: Carlos Alcaraz in second half of the season

Player of the year - ATP and WTA: Djokovic and Barty
Match of the year: ATP: B03 PCB v Djokovic Olympics. B05: Tsitsipas v Nadal QF Aus Open. WTA: Muguruza v Osaka or Sabalenka v Serena 4R Aus Open
Tournament of the year: Aus Open for both
Moment of the year: ATP: Medvedev ends Djokovic's CYGS. WTA: Probably Raducanu wins the USO got the most headlines
Comment of the year: Jason Swerve said a lot of dumb stuff this year about Barty but for me this takes the cake. On April 4 he said " Barty has a year of auspiciously frozen results to make up for. We'll see how #1 she is, come next January.". Ash then went on to win Stuttgart, Wimbledon and Cincinnati to secure #1.
Breakout performance of the year: ATP: Karatsev. WTA: Krejcikova. People will say Raducanu but it's clearly Krejcikova who is now #5 in the world and won far more than Emma did.
Biggest upset/shock: ATP: Medvedev ending Djokovic's CYGS. WTA: Krejcikova wins RG or Raducanu wins USO
Best rivalry on tour: ATP: Djokovic v Medvedev? WTA: Barty v Sabalenka
Biggest False Dawn (biggest disappointment): ATP: next gen. WTA: Serena?

Best thread on TTW: “No, these WTA teenagers aren’t ready yet”, the deleted “enjoy your NextGen Lemons” and “Let’s compare Martinka and Federer” - all @Jason Swerve
I think I actually saved that OP lol. This line was a particular highlight:

"As you watch Hingis '97 smack around with this ball boy, pay attention to how she handles his junk balls. Every bop and boop and awkward stroke he gives her, she never hesitates over the crowd watching her or tries too hard to put on any show"

pretty sure the original version before the edit was "junk" instead of "junk balls" which is even worse haha

edit: wait that was a different thread than the one you're talking about

My vote goes to the hard working TTW moderators who make sure that according to laws, rules and standards the forums are civil, factual and up to date.

My vote also goes to Novak Djokovic, who's in a relentless fashion conquered an amazing milestone in 2021 and who has shown the world an integrity that a whole lot people ought to learn from.

Back when I started tennis as a schoolkid in Australia focused on other sports, I played tennis at friends houses or at school holiday camps where my favourite award was the McDonalds Encouragement Award. It was usually a free meal voucher (of course the vegan Karens have had that and all McDonalds stuff like it shut down).

Point is it was all any of us ever wanted to win but it wasn’t given to the tournament winners and/or pretty boys with one handed backhands. It was given to those who showed something truly special and brightened up the whole sordid affair.

And thus I nominate a new category named after our junk food connection:

@MichaelNadal’s Admit It Encouragement Award (brought to you by All The Junk) for Trollery: @Jason Swerve

Actually I’ll make up another one. Most times somebody has poasted something suitable. Whether it’s sensible, sarcastic or rude and/or captured my sentiment, it’s saving me the time to post.

yokied’s Award for Efficiency: @Kralingen

Come back: @Meles. Bring back the excel-powered second serve analyses please man. I know you’re out there bud.
