I love a happy ending. In this, his final volley, Adam opts for arms-as-in-hugging instead of arms-as-in-shooting, and scrapbooks the whole event for our pleasure. I imagine the two contestants nostalgically picking through these mementos in the future, fondly recalling that Friday in (summer|winter) they spent swapping postcards and talking about the weather.
(Although those legs seem awfully motionless. And there's a crack in the snowglobe. Perhaps Adam gave Oleg his gifts with an overabundance of zeal ...)
All that remains is the declaration of a winner, so here's how the voting works. Declare who is the winner and then simply tweet their first name following a hash mark. Either #oleg or #adam. And, this is important, also include #lyt in that tweet. We'll leave the voting open all weekend and announce the winner Monday. We only count your first vote so there's no sense in trying to stuff the ballot box. Also, there is no voting on Qualifying Matches.
This was our final regular season match of the season. If you'd like to help us pick the field for our post-season tournament, you need to be on the Season Ticket mailing list, we'll be mailing out ballots on Monday and the single-elimination tournament will starts on Friday, November 19th with two live Quarter-Finals.
Thanks to everyone, from Cape Town, and Moscow, and Chicago, and Seattle. The world feels a little smaller thanks to your participation.
Play by play commentary for this match is provided, as it happens, by Matthew Baldwin.
Our friends and longtime sponsors at Adobe have a quick survey for Layer Tennis fans. It would mean a lot to us if you could take a couple minutes between layers to answer some simple questions. Thanks a million.
