Default Second Annual Gonad Awards

2007 will go down in history as the Year of Controversy. It all began with Nikolay Davydenko being fined by the ATP for maligning the Medibank International Tournament in Sydney. Bet you 50 grand you all forgot about that one. It ended, more or less, with Davydenko being fined for lack of effort in a tennis match, a fine the ATP later rescinded. But the Russian remains at the center of a betting scandal investigation. Then there were Golden Girl's joke of a draw at the US Open, allegations of poisoning, everybody and their cousin claiming they were approached by (anonymous) callers to fix matches, the fall of a smiling assassin for scoring an 8 ball, and the pending nuptials of a teenage would-be It Girl. The Biggest Controversy of them all, the one which affected tennis most directly from where I sit, was the AELTC's shyster scheduling of Wimbledon's men's matches, a controversy that was virtually ignored by the media.

Somewhere in the midst of all this, great and forgettable tennis was produced. In my second annual Gonad Awards, we'll take a look at the best and worst 2007 had to offer on and off the court.
