Our 3rd Annual Royal Court Awards are NOW officially underway. Remember the winners of the 3 fan favorite awards will all win a custom made Venus and or Serena T-shirt. The first year of the awards we had 70% of all members participate in at least one phase of voting. Hopefully we can get another strong response this time around too. The rules are stated below and if you have any further questions use this thread to communicate with me.

You feel me?! I'm not a member of the Royal Court but it would have been nice to be at least mentioned in the Special Shout out award category.

Wow a nomination, thanks

Im surprised Paneru isn't on the most supportive Venus fan list More surprised still am I that Manatee isn't on the most supportive Williams sister fan short list

(4) There is no path to victory for Williams.Keys wins in straight easy sets.

Re: 3rd ANUAL ROYAL COURT AWARDS (coming soon)...

The first time I did the awards I had about 2/3 of all the members participate in voting this time around I'm about 1/3 so that might explain why some people were left off. In some instances just a couple of votes were enough to make it to the first phase of nominations. But whether it's 20 people or just 1 person, it's still nice to be thought of in a positive light- So congratulations to all those that recieved nominations.

KEEP THE VOTES COMING!!! I'll announce the winners in this thread by (or before) November 5th. You have until November 1st to get your votes counted!

Thank you for the nomination!

19. In the period from January to April 2006 Dr. Skalny sent very detailed messages to Ms Sharapova [...]: “Mildronate 1-2 X 10, repeat in 2 wks (before training or competition)”; “1 hr before competition, 2 pills of Mildronate”; “During games of special importance, you can increase your Mildronate dose to 3-4 pills (1 hr before the match). However, it is necessary to consult me on all these matters (please call)”; “30 minutes prior to a training session: Mildronat – 1 Capsule. 30-45 minutes prior to a tournament Mildronat 2 capsules”.
