Anyway, Betty asked for a speech. Here's mine:

"Hello everyone! Wow... I am a doubles champion. I never imagined such a day would come. As recently as three months ago I thought Tennis Tipping was too hard for me to play. But I decided to try it out in the new season after receiving the right encouragement and now, barely a month later, I'm a doubles champion. I'm still speechless.

I want to thank all my supporters from the Rafa chat thread - Betty, who posted here even when she wasn't supporting me (you're forgiven, by the way), Adam (adee-gee), who I think also wished me luck, and all the hundreds of people who didn't post anything but were cheering for me silently. And last but not least - Linda (l_mac), who explained the rules to me when I was starting out, and fought hard with me to win the title.

Oh yes, I almost forgot - thank you to Zirconek, the tournament manager. You provided me with plenty of tense moments while I waited for the differences every day. I want to especially thank you for fixing the mistake in R1 and allowing us to get through to the second round. I feel that was the key moment in this tournament when I started really believing that I could win.

I would also like to congratulate ilovetheblues_86/frici for the hard R1 match they gave us, it was the hardest match for us and we were a bit lucky to win it on SR differences. We also had a bit of luck when our opponents AceMaker and zveeen forgot to send their picks. But all in all I feel that we deserved the title and I'm very happy we got it. I hope to keep improving and win a singles title one day. See you in Belgrade!"

P.S. In case you didn't notice, this speech is not entirely serious

good speech

only you could be nicer with the manager
you should highlight the good work, not the very few and small and promptly corrected mistakes during daily updates; differences also came pretty quick, you're too impatient

Not quite my debut...lost in the final Q round of Carson when I didn't send picks...going to be tough for me to do tournaments in America because of the time zone as I found to my cost...but should be OK for tourneys in Europe, Africa, Asia and Oz

Look forward to seeing the rankings now, hopefully got enough points that I can get direct entry into most challengers after Belgrade!

Congrats

I won my first title here too, and was my second tournament (in first one I also stopped at qualy final round, but didn't give W.O. to my opponent ). It was a great tournament managed by Adam (adee-gee)

C'mon, I gave you a rep And you were certainly better than some ATP managers who're managing right now I'll be happy to play in another tournament of yours

한국어 너무 좋아요

the rep was very nice, thank you and I hope you play in my next tournaments since you bring entertainment to the game
we - managers - sometimes would like more feedback from the players
