Help Tennis.Life vote for the ATP Awards

The voting for the ATP’s year-end awards is getting under way.

And Tennis.Life has a vote on the media side to help set the list of nominations for the award, which is voted on by the players.


We want it to be a reflection of our readership. So please vote on the nominations below (you can choose up to four in the first category, three in the other two).

We’ll tabulate the votes and cast our according to the results.

(Note that the suggested nominations come from the ATP; if you want to vote for a player who isn’t included in the options, just type the name and category in the comments section and we’ll include it).

You have until Thursday, Oct. 12 at 1 p.m. EDT to weigh in. 

Go to it!
