2016 Tennis ELO Awards - Voting

Starting from this year, I'm going to be awarding some virtual prizes to 4 players based on my Big Gainer and Upset player awards that are handed out every week. Below the jump are the players I've shortlisted for the 4 awards this year and where you can vote for the winner.

For the "Player of the Year" awards, I've listed why each player has been nominated, which I haven't done for the "Disappointment of the year" awards. How you choose who you vote for is up to you, the winners of the awards will be the player who gets the most votes.

The deadline for voting will be 04/12/2016 23;59:59 UTC. (Edit: Polls have now closed, winners are announced here)
