The 2006 Tennis Tipping Sportsmanship Award

The Sportsmanship Award is presented to the player who, throughout the year, conducted himself at the highest level of professionalism and integrity, who competed with his fellow players with the utmost spirit of fairness, and who promoted the game through his off-court activities.
There are many people eligible for this award, so we (Labamba and I) decided to make an open poll (any player can be voted). Please, post the player you think should win it.

I'm sorry, but it's too hard to resist. TFC embodies everything that this award represents.

If he's not eligible due to insufficient data, I'd vote for Sylvester. Always seems to be very sporting as most of the tippers on tour are.

Gavin (Gavnich77)

One of the nicest people here. :) He's always friendly towards others, but is also a tough competitor. I can say the same things about Dana :hug: (scythe19pro), but Gav has the edge here due to his great work with TT management and rankings. :yeah:

You should vote for her at least in one thread. You have your best doubles result with her ;).
Do you want me to bother searching the Paris thread and some unfair and not sportive epitets you and Josh posted :p?

Tell me 1 thing:
Why do you think i'm not a sportsman?
Because I was complaining about the entry system or because I want wildcards?
Just tell the reason why do you think I'm not playing fair?

you put in doubt the honesty of a manager, that was working damn hard to organize a tournament with 32 qualifiers and 32 MD players

I was just wondering how he deals with it...
Because,he didn't wrote anywhere that he is sending picks to uglyamerican.
Just that Uglyamerican is the second maneger,and that his opponents (foosimoo's)must send their picks to Ua.

Hmm, Isa gets my vote.

She lost against me in a very close match in the USO and she wished me good luck for the rest of tournament and even gave me a good rep!

She also got very unlucky by not qualifying for the doubles masters and she took it with amazing fair-play.

But there is so many people that i could vote for. Melvins would be a good choice for dealing with me for a whole season... :p

Murilo.
I got a jammy win against Murilo (the old bizarre tb system when his score was actually closer than mine) but he was having none of it and congratulated me as he does to everyone who beats him. A true sportsman :yeah:

This isn't a plea for votes or anything, but I would like to give a :bigclap: to all who defeated me and a :hug: to all I defeated. Sometimes I forget, or I don't get chance, but I will try and be nicer next year! :)

Oh, and the TT managers and board :rocker2: too. :wavey:

:) This is a tough choice - so many worthy contenders but I have to vote for Ville (Labamba). He's very competitive, determined to win and plays one of the best tactical games in TT, but is always very fair and gracious in defeat :yeah:

He has done a lot of work in making the game what it is and is always willing to listen to other points of view and will compromise his opinions for the good of the game, but only after arguing his point in a clear and concise manner. He never badmouths, slags off any other players or resorts to name calling. He's also not afraid of making the hard decisions. He has co-ordinated a lot of the discussions on the rules and changes and has amazing foresight for the long term future of the game :worship:

Special mention also goes to Isa (LaTenista), Dana (scythe19pro) and Peggy (Bjorki) who are always quick to congratulate their opponents :) Of course, most players do as well but those 3 stick out in my mind.
