2, 7 and 9 look like the categories invented to make sure everyone gets a prize on last night at guide camp. Actually, #5 is up there too.

What about volleys, lobs, serve, passing shots and of course, best haircut! :D

8. Best forehand: Nadal.

There should be two Best forehand categories; under 25 seconds and under 50 seconds between the points.

Until some future prodigy is allowed 75-100 seconds.
