The Golden Tennis Balls Awards

Okay so this is only an idea at this stage but I'd like your feedback on it please

My idea is running a WTA World tennis awards thing. There will be quite a few awards of the night including;
  • Best Sound
  • Most Attractive Player (per continent)
  • Most Attractive Player
  • Best Volleyer
  • Best Server
  • Best Forehand
  • Best Backhand
  • Best Doubles Player (per continent)
  • Best Junior (per continent)
  • Best Senior (per continent)
  • Best Junior
  • Best Senior
  • The Golden Tennis Racquet (most favourite tennis player)

Basically id have a period of like 2 weeks where people can send in who they think should be nominated for each award and then at the end of that I'd pick the top 7 who will then be nominees.

Any more ideas around this (eg any more award ideas, new name for the award show, is this a good idea at all)

Thank you for everything Mercedes, now please be nice to Socrates for me, perhaps fetch him a bird or two. We love you, always.

Career Grand Slam in your 20s? Been there done that. Career golden slam your 30s?
There's only 1.
