Oh, came here to nominate the USTA, but inevitably others got there before :-)

September should not be included in this poll. USTA win by a landslide every single time. I expect a 4-day R1 next year to compensate for the sane scheduling at the end of the tournament.

If some unknown talent came out of some random tiny country (no chance to win DC) and won 20 slams, no one would give a single shit if that player didn't have DC. The fact is, success in DC is largely determined by what country you come from or play for in the first place, which most players haven't had any control over.

USTA have it wrapped up again. Even if Cilic gets double bagelled by Donald Young.

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...

How fucking stupid can you possibly be?
This interview after the match suspension was absolutely the "top".
Want Ferrer to win the tournament now even more.

USTA without a doubt

"Did you ever consider putting the match on Armstrong?"

"Umm, no, not really, not at all"

WELL WHY THE FUCK NOT?
What were you doing all day!??!?
Did it not once occur to you that maybe two men's matches could not fit within a 4 hour timespan?
Or were you just sitting on your lazy ass all day thinking about the amount of money you were making?


I was under the impression that players were supposed to win their matches and grand slams through hard work and dedication.
This organization has royally fucked David Ferrer who would be in the final right now if this match had just been played on Armstrong.
Well done USTA, well done. You have surprised us with your stupidity yet again.

This award should automatically be retired for the month of September and given to the USTA every single year.

The same organization that has put so much time and effort into optimizing cash earning potential at the Open for two weeks every year that they've completely sidelined the concerns of the players and don't absolutely nothing to improve a fan experience that has fallen behind the other slams.

A disgrace
