2009 Suicide Tennis Awards



2009 Suicide Tennis Awards


It's that time of year again... It is coming up to the end of the season and FINALLY we get to acknowledge the hard work of both the organisers and players of Suicide Tennis for 2009.

To get the awards up and running I need input from all the people who have participated in Suicide Tennis this year. We need to come up with a list of awards and names for the awards ( the more non award ceremony-ish the better).

All input is welcome...

Thank you all in advance and when it comes time to vote please do...


Rules of Voting:
Once it comes time to vote for the awards there really isn't to many rules...

1) You have to private message me your votes titles "Suicide Award Votes"

2) Once you send me your votes they cannot be changed (so please make sure you are positive you want to vote for those you do before sending them)

3) You must send the votes for all awards in the one private message (to make it easy) --- If there are additional awards decided on after the voting opens those who have sent votes may vote for the newer awards

4) You may only vote ONCE!!!

Re: 2009 Suicide Tennis Awards

Here is a list of awards that I come up with that we could use for our awards:

Suicide Player of the Year
Rookie Suicide Player of the Year
Suicide Manager of the Year
Rookie Suicide Manager of the Year
Comeback Suicide Player of the Year
Most Improved Player of the Year
Biggest Scandal of the Year
Best Commentary by a Suicide Manager
Most Surprising Run of the Year
Most Shocking Suicide of the Year
Mass Suicide of the Year

If you (dis)agree please reply and tell me what you think...
If you have any other probably awards please feel free to state them...
If you have ANY names for the awards (ie. Most Surprising Run of the Year = The GS Semi Finalist Award as in RG and US we have had 2 somewhat suprising semi finalists) please reply because I cant think of any others at the moment...

EDIT: Once we get a comprehensive list of the awards then we can start with the nominees...

Re: 2009 Suicide Tennis Awards

We have our first votes for the suicide awards...
I will have posted a list of the awards in post no/ 3...
For some awards (ie. suicide player of the year - this is an open choice)...
For others (ie. biggest scandal - we will need nominees) just so that we that people have a clear choice and that there isnt a lot on 1 or 2 votes...

Re: 2009 Suicide Tennis Awards

I think we need an annual Hall of Fame award

As this is my idea and I'm the GOAT I nominate myself
