I hope MTF doesn't begin to support longer offseason just because of that. But otherwise newcomer contest could be good.

What next? MTF sportsmanship award?

Yep. This is why we gotta have the ACC right after WTF, not wait 2 weeks.
Yeah but can't we hold it at the same time as the other events (preferably after ACC)? What would be wrong with that?

OP could organise the entire thing in just one break in-between points by Rafa

Typical antics all came out in this match: faking injuries, grimacing and cursing, trying to peg Fed, trying to start drama, undeserved final based on an exhausted old man and a joke draw.

I'm no Fakervic fan but he needs to save tennis, sadly tree trunk legs will be fresh. Interesting he's never questioned....

Re: Different Contests then the one's we have?

Yeah I will organize the whole event; seeds, participants, set up; all after Rafa's first point. Then the whole things will be decided on Rafa's second point. Murray can cheer us on with his "CMON!"

For real though, I will host a NewComer of the Year Contest if cool with with y'all. Which it seems to be. 13-3.

Maybe a mod can ok this? I don't want to clutter the place if MTF can't finish this contest.

If you have an issue with a report/infraction, a user, a moderator or just want to talk, PM me.

I support Roger Federer, Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal, Andy Murray, David Ferrer, Del Potro.

Why? Because I love tennis plain and simple

Rookie of the Year would be great! Unfortunately there is very little time, and MTF activity is at an alltime low right now. You would have to wait until after Popcon and Mr(s). MTF finishes, maybe at the end of December.

Mr and Mrs MTF won't finish by end of December. We'll be lucky to get them done before AO begins.
Newcomer contest could be done in February.

I understand the logic of holding contests in the off-season, to give users something to do. But I don't understand why everyone's so desperate not to have any when there are tennis matches happening. One doesn't take away from the other.

Yes, I think February is good. There's a small lull between the slams and the hard court masters so it would be good time. Also, it would give the people who joined in the later part of 2012 a chance to make a mark.

Re: Different Contests then the one's we have?

I like the idea, but perhaps we should call it 'double account of the year' instead?
