Didn't even realize the Antalyas could be played on different surfaces. I just assumed they were all on HC. Hopefully she keeps playing well, but this has been a great year for her!

Re: Ana Bogdan

Most improved player of the year, in my opinion.

I know you're ironic, but she did improved this season. She finished 2012 ranked outside top 500 (538) and has a good chance to finish 2013 inside top 300. It all depends on how she does next week in Nanjing. I know she got her ranking mostly by whoring 10K's in Antalya, but it was still a pretty good year for Ana. She's still young

Re: Ana Bogdan

It was actually more of a pun in view of the in my opinion useless category of 'most improved player'.

How do you define which player improved most? Surely Simona improved a whole lot, but what about players like Siniakova or Hibino?

It's all too fishy for my liking, because improvement is only able to be measured in view of the place or position from which you started.

The award is called WTA's Most Improved Player. If it was called ITF's Most Improved Player I'm pretty sure Siniakova, Ozaki (or Hibino) would have made great candidates. But at this point they play little if anything on the WTA tour. As for the utility of the award itself, I know it's just a silly mention and not the Nobel Prize for World Peace, but as long as it's there I just hope the winner will be the player who deserves it most this year, the one who won 5 WTA titles in 6 months

Re: Ana Bogdan

If it's called 'WTA most improved player' I will take back what I said because this indeed indicates that certain player was already participating regularly at WTA events, even before her visible improvements.

Re: Ana Bogdan

That scheduling didn't make any sense at all, anyway, if you ask me.

Re: Ana Bogdan

The queen is back on her throne court in Antalya, seeded #1 for the 10k starting on Novemeber 4th. Guess skipping Nanjing was a scheduling decision, and nothing injury-related after all.
