The seeding committee (Jill Spencer, Peter Jamieson and Adam Bradshaw) who got it almost totally bang right and are likely to be head-hunted by Wimbledon.
Hima Fernando who managed to get to the final without losing a game!
Our umpires Adam Bradshaw, Dave Chadwick and Lee Gregson who did a great job trying to call the lines and remember the score.
Photographers Mark Hillsdon and Andy Gardiner who took some cracking pics.
