Hey everyone

Hey all how are ya?

Im new here and also new to tennis. Im starting to get interested in tennis. and ive got 2 questions:

1. in soccer, they have fifa player of the year award, and also formal awards where they actually GO to thsoe awards wearing formal unifrom and all that. In tennis, what kind of awards can we attend?

2. i checked the atp website, i realized theres actually quite a lot of tournaments, its like nonstop. However, do pro pplayers go to every single one of these, or just the ones with big $?

basically thats it i guess. hope to make new freidns here =D

Cya!

Re: Hey everyone

1. I don't really know if the awards have a specific name, but there is a banquet held every year where awards are given out on both the WTA and ATP tours.

2. The top male players usually just play the Slams, Masters Series events, and a few other events throughout the year. Unless you are Nikolay Davydenko, who loves playing every week of the year. The top women play the Slams, the Tier I's, and some Tier II's.

Hope that answered your questions and welcome to the board.

Re: Hey everyone

2. What Federer did this year was he went to a small tournament that he was sure to win because he hadn't won anything.....so he had a title.

Re: Hey everyone

wow such a very warm welcome thanks!

So thsoe answers were very helpful....just want to make sure:

1 there IS a banquet/award ceremony where both male and female players are given awards? Is there a name for it? Also, what time of the year is it held?
Is there only 1 award in the whole year?

2. Is it embarassing to go to EVERY SINGLE TOURNAMENT? Doesnt that make u sound greedy?

Thanks everyoneee!

1. That award is held around Miami everyyear, like second half of March. They have awards like player of the year, comeback award, best improvement, best doubles team, etc. Not sure about the name tho.

2. Not really but when you look at JJ next week, she will rise to no.2 thanks for that she plays a lot and earn her an extra 18th tourny points.

Any favourite player? Note: here fans are devided into Ana's and Maria's. Make your choice
