After a long season filled with highlights, lowlights and memorable moments, we are handing out our 2015 tennis awards. Who were the winners and losers? Check it out:
Top quotes of the year: Serena strikes back
As usual, tennis players didn't just let their rackets do the talking. Here are our best verbal volleys of the season.
Top tourney of the year: Down go Serena, Rafa in New York
Inevitably, we're going to see upsets in major events, but what happened at the US Open (yikes, Serena, Rafa!) was beyond what we could have imagined.
Moment of the year: Men's French Open final
In a fantastic year of tennis, there were great moments in nearly every tournament, but none stands out more than the Stan Wawrinka's stunning upset of Novak Djokovic in the French Open final.
Top off-court storylines: Serena finally at peace
For all Serena Williams' career setbacks, none compared to the ugly Indian Wells incident in 2001. But this season, the world No. 1 returned with unbridled support.
Top on-court storylines: Novak, Serena and nobody else
Novak Djokovic and Serena Williams dominated to the extent that any other on-court achievements in 2015 more or less seemed irrelevant.
Our three unsung heroes of the year: Karlovic aces his way back up the rankings
These three ATP players won't take home any prestigious awards this season, but they certainly deserve acknowledgement for stringing together surprising results.
Top controversies of the year: Kyrgios makes it personal
There's trash-talking, and then there is trash-talking. Nick Kyrgios' crude remarks to Stan Wawrinka earlier this year went too far.
Top coaches of the year: Becker quiets the detractors
The hiring came with universal skepticism, but Boris Becker has proved he is a great coach. Just ask Novak Djokovic.
Top tantrums of the year: Coco goes bonkers
It's easy to lose your cool on the tennis court, but Coco Vandeweghe took her frustration to a new level.
Top points of the year: Here's how you beat Djokovic
It takes a lot to beat Novak Djokovic. But Benoit Paire showed us how by digging deep into his bag of tricks against the world No. 1 to capture the top point of the year.
Shot-maker of the year: Federer gets fancy
Roger Federer wins as efficiently as anyone in the game, but in 2015, he showed us he also has some serious razzle-dazzle in his repertoire.
Top men's matches: Nadal no stranger to drama
Rafael Nadal was far from the best player on tour this season, but when it came to on-court theater, he was head of the class.
Top women's matches: Wait, Serena comes up short?
Hard to believe Roberta Vinci beat Serena Williams at the US Open, ending the world No. 1's bid for a season Slam. It's just as hard to believe that wasn't our top women's match of the year.
Top men's player: Djokovic the one-man show
Novak Djokovic was so dominant that he nearly lapped No. 2 Andy Murray in rankings points. The question is: Where did the Serb's season rank among the all-time best?
Top women's player: Serena stands alone
Somehow, after all that Serena Williams accomplished, her season has been largely defined by what she didn't do. Still, it's not as if anyone else stepped up to challenge the world No. 1.
