The Devil's Show - 2021 TTW Awards: All Nomination Categories *vote here*

Legend
Player of the year - ATP and WTA: Novak Djokovic, and...

The Queen of the Desert


SHUT UP, HATERS!

Match of the year: Hmm... First one comes to mind for me is Kerber and Sorribes Tormo at Wimbledon.

Tournament of the year:
US Open

Moment of the year:
This is tough... Seems dumb not to pick a qualifier winning a major, or Medvedev getting his first big one, but I really think Alcaraz downing Tsitsipas gets my vote.

Comment of the year:
"He also said he's innocent" (though he was right about them not winning any more points) I feel like there's a lot of good ones in this category I'm forgetting. Wasn't "You don't like the good tennis" this year? "GET ON WITH IT, YOU OCD *BEEP*" also?

Breakout performance of the year:
Has to be Alcaraz in New York.

Biggest upset/shock:
Um... Hat trick for Carlos? :-D

Best rivalry on tour:
Djoko and Medvedev. Though Djoko also kinda with Zverev and also kinda with Berrettini.

Biggest False Dawn (biggest disappointment):
Tsitsipas.

Can I humbly nominate my own thread.. I started off with a bit of a rant, but I debated and learned so much in the course of it that I believe it is the definitive thread for Martina Hingis and Steffi on this forum... It brought me back to the forum in fact after many years

https://tt.tennis-warehouse.com/index.php?threads/1999-fo-hingis-was-right.690815/

Also for player of the year, I will be controversial but have to say Novak Djokovic for obvious reasons, despite the US Open result and Naomi Osaka because she angered some of the tennis purists (somewhat me as well), but she really brought a new interest to the sport and raised some important questions.. Of course and she won Australia

There should be a "best exchange" nomination category. I'd go with this one lol

Rafael Nadal has arrived in Adelaide as he begins his mandatory two-week quarantine period ahead of the Australian Open. Here are a few photos.




Sebastian is with him, with Marc on the left.

So is his wife.
The woman in a yellow coat is not Rafa's wife.
He brought his mistress?

I completely forgot both of those threads existed until I checked into this one :-D
Roland Garros this year kinda showed who is a real Nadal fan and who is not ;)
He may or may not have been a genuine Nadal fan, but the one thing we do know was that he was genuinely annoying
