Tennis Tipping Awards 2009: DeccyB123 Contribution to TT. [Winner: Gavnich77]

The 2009 DeccyB123 Contribution to TT Award

Dedicated to DeccyB123 who brought Tennis Tipping to MTF at the Australian Open in January 2006 and without whom we would not be playing this game today

The Contribution to TT Award is presented to the person who, throughout the year, has dedicated their time to making Tennis Tipping the game that it is today. It goes to the person who has gone above the call of duty and devoted themselves to Tennis Tipping above the level that is expected and required. There are many people eligible for this award, so we (Labamba, Keqtqiadv and I) decided to make an open poll (any player can be voted). Please post the person you think should win it with reasons why.

**Note that this is a new award and differs from the Sportsmanship Award as that is intended for the way in which people play the game rather than the efforts made in maintaining the game.

Tough decision between TT Board (OK, I know it's not one person), Evita (spreadsheet, website) and Tytta!. (FAQ).

I vote for Gavnich77 and his work with the rankings

The way you worded the sportsmanship award was confusing

Anyway, I vote -Evita- for this too, for all the same reasons. ANd I suggest that next year we change the name of this award to The Evita Award.

Re: Tennis Tipping Awards 2009: DeccyB123 Contribution to TT

Oh man I should have read through all the polls because this is what Evita should win

Troicki - Djokovic - Del Potro - Kyrgios - Berankis
Cibulkova - Robson - Kirilenko - Azarenka
Retired but always loving Ferrero - Ancic - Kiefer

maybe she should win both of them. in fact she should win every TT award this season, except biggest disappointment.

This is the easiest vote of all, -Evita-, of course.

My vote for Gavnich Without what Gavnich does for weekly update of rankings this game is impossible.

Re: Tennis Tipping Awards 2009: DeccyB123 Contribution to TT

I really can't decide between Evita and Gavnich. Gav has been flawless for years with his rankings and I seriously don't know how he does it with the amount of players in this game now it must take so much of his time

Although I've never managed a tournament, but from what I hear, Evita's spreadsheet must have been a stroke of genius and has contributed hugely to the ongoing running of this game

I really can't choose so either of them winning will be fine by me

Re: Tennis Tipping Awards 2009: DeccyB123 Contribution to TT

It was not a stroke of genius, really It's just that I have an education in the IT field and I know that computers can do stuff faster and better than humans so we must take advantage of it. I first started thinking about managing TT tournaments sometime in February, I think, and the first thing I did was ask around where I could get the spreadsheet. It seemed obvious to me that there's no need to calculate differences in picks by hand when the computer could do it for us automatically. And the same with calculating results. I was seriously surprised when no one seemed to have such a spreadsheet. So I really had no choice, I had to create one if I wanted to manage any tournaments because I had no wish to do it manually. So you see, it's just a product of my laziness
