I wish I had won Rome in simple, but unfortunately I missed the final for @petesampras_1 ... rsrsrs.

Congrats to all players. For me, @Himalaya was the best.

:spit: I hadn't even noticed myself on this list :cuckoo: Cruel joke @ibreak4coffee >:)
You're top 30 in singles and doubles and made a GS final and won what's virtually a GS. Plus plenty of good results that didn't result in finals. People look too closely at how many finals and wins there are, but there are other factors.

Rest assured however we can overlook you next year :)

Yes I guess I forget doubles has a big impact on this , and not just 1-9 singles listed, Grand Slam Champion was certainly a big deal at the time , thanks to FED in 5 :grin2:

I'm sure I will have no trouble being overlooked next year, I think I got a pity vote with about the same stats last year at 24 S / 18 D Maybe

Re: Tennis Tipping Awards 2018 - Player of the Year

I will bribe someone for a vote, so it's not so embarrassing >:)

oh @Rumpas have you voted yet :wink2:
Bribery has a long and cherished tradition in MTF competitions/votes. In my case, damn @Randy ain't giving me crap after I started the campaign for Disappointment of the Year :sport:

Making finals in challenger and world tour in the same year is an incredible accomplishment. Wish I could split my vote on this one with Mae and Himalaya.

So now I am focused to win one time my favourite tournament RG together with PDK ( I think the next number one in november 2019)
