[GMT] Awards 2009.



GMT Awards

The second season of GMT has come to an end. Itís been an eventful one to say the least; there have been bitch fights and beautiful graphics, as well as the occasional Board Election thrown in. But now itís time for our annual GMT Awards.

Once again the Board has trawled the yearís tournament threads to refresh our memory and rediscover forgotten masterpieces in order to compile a shortlist for our awards. If you have not been nominated don't take it personally, narrowing down each shortlist to the final contenders is no easy task.

Those who have been nominated for the Beth Mattek, Marion Bartoli & Laura Robson Awards now have 24 hours to submit a graphic they have used in GMT this year to convince voters that they deserve the award. After this voting will open. If you are eligible to vote you will be sent a PM. Please vote for who you think most deserves the award rather than your best friend. And, once again, we ask you to please keep your vote secret.

In addition to the awards below, this year the Board has decided to introduce a special GMT Honorary Award, presented to a person we feel has been devoted to the game, made a difference and is a general asset to the game. This winner of the 1st Honorary Award will be announced after the other awards have been awarded.

And so, without further ado, we present you with the GMT Awards 2009 Shortlists:

Of course, the Board really appreciates you doing the rankings.

(I'll get back to you on the points for YEC soon, I promise)

Re: [GMT] Awards 2009.

I think it was the Asian Hardcourt Season Final Fiasco, not the US Open Final fiasco.

Thanks for the noms.

Re: [GMT] Awards 2009.

Oh and graphics that were not actually used (like in the case of withdrawals) count?
