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.
The winners will be announced during the ATP Tour Finals in London.
For the first time this year, only Next-Gen Finals-eligible players in the top 100 are eligible for the “Newcomer of the Year” award.
(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 or send it via DM on Twitter, and we’ll include it).
You have until Thursday, Oct. 11 at 8 p.m. EDT to weigh in.
Go to it!
