Hi guys,

yes, we will do awards for this year as well, but differently this time, YOU will nominate people in each category. You can nominate up to 5 people in each category. The deadline for your lists is 28th of December 1 PM CET.

You can nominate people in these categories:
Most Improved Player of the Year
Challenger Player of the Year
Sportsmanship Award
Doubles Team of the Year
Newcomer of the Year
Player of the Year
Manager of the Year
Tournament of the Year

Send all lists to Sexysova and I will forward them to the rest of the board so it's fair and noone can cheat.

Thanks,
TT board

Doesn't the TT board normally pick the players in each category? What if someone who really deserves to be in one of the polls doesn't get nominated? Personally speaking, I don't have the time to do this, so I won't be nominating - sorry.

the board decided to do it this way this year because last years the board was blamed for being biased and unfair.

Well it will now just turn out to be a popularity contest - not one based on players actual results. Yes last year there were one or two petty complaints, but at the end of the day, players should respect the decisions of the TT Board.

yeah, that's the risk. I haven't received many lists so far so maybe there won't even be many so the board could decide itself.

Even if I wanted to I couldn't name a player in all of the groups. I don't monitor progress of different players just my own. Most Improved Player?? Player of the year.

I could nominate someone for that and completely mess up :lol:

I think the board still should do it as they would have a better overview of things. It's just up to you guys to actually be biased and not favourable towards your favorite players.

you might get some arguments after but then again it is only a game. You don't get a prize for that(I mean money or anything)

yeah, it's really difficult, I got one list so far :spit: so I guess the board will do it itself anyway :lol: but, you know, we wanted TT players to choose themselves when they were not happy about last years' nominees :)

I understand your point, but I also find it too hard to nominate people for this. Plus you would nominate with bias most of the time (eg. favouring your countrymates and doubles partner). I respect the TT Boards' opinion on the nominations. :)

Obviously the sportsmanship award should be handed to me as well since I was the only one who sent you the nominations:(

As long as it sounds logical you don't have to worry. You are quite a few people to pick players, so I guess no one will be forgotten :).
Hope the nominations will be released soon :hug:.

considering I just got two lists so far, the board will nominate people itself again this year. you can expect polls to be up soon.
