Ok we've finished the first semester of the year with a glorious French Open win by Serena Williams and it's now time to choose the best players/matches/surprises of those amazing six tennis months.

Categories:
1. Most heart wrenching match: That match which rallies were more than exciting, the whole crowd participating turned the game on a wicked extravaganza and you could never predict who'd win

2. Most disappointing match: That kinda over-hyped match when everybody thought it would be a high-technique very close match and it was instead very easy and filled with errors

3. Most one-sided match: That match which one player took total control and never looked that would lose

4. Biggest upset match: That match which had an UNPREDICTABLE score

5. Best player:
Just the best. Who has played better and achieved more

6. Best junior player:
The junior that has been rising more and proving her potential at the tour tournaments

7. Most disappointing player:
That very good player who has yet to peak this year and has not showed half of her best shape - you can't choose an injured player!

8. Best newcomer:
The most surprising new player of the semester who has already achieved good results

9. Best late-boomer:
The most surprising "old" player of the semester who has already achieved good results

10. Best tournament (results):
That tournament that held the toughest matches and was more exciting than any other
