Re: The 2006 Tennis Poker Awards!

oh cool... time to buy a new dress and write new speeches.

I may not have the softest touch
I may not say the words as such
I know I don't fit in that much
But I'm yours

You shouldn't be so negative, you had a consistent singles season with a major peak, a stunning doubles partner and a pretty good Fed Cup record.

Re: The 2006 Tennis Poker Awards!

Last year's edition:
http://www.wtaworld.com/showthread.php?t=206891


There won't be any major change this season, I'll keep the technical stats + public poll format and the very same categories.

The main difference will be I want them to be over before May.

The first nominations are ready, and will be announced next week after all the 8th leg results have been posted.

Good luck everyone!

Re: The 2006 Tennis Poker Awards!

Two important news.

I was forced to change a little bit the Fed Cup awards categories, as the new roster rule made a lot of posters play just either singles or doubles and not both, so it was impossible to consider two different win %. The overall personal record is the only one I considered, giving it a triple weight so that team performance stats keep the same value.

Many posters this year got multiple nominations, so I will add a 10th award for the Best Overall Tennis Poker Player.

Good luck everyone!

Re: The 2006 Tennis Poker Awards!

Is there a trophy for "Player who didn't win a single match all year"?

We may introduce it, but SK Fluffy would be the only eligible player.
