Re: S3 Awards

2 nominations in match of the season

I have no chance in Most Improved Player against the other two, but it's nice to be nominated there too, anyway.

Btw, why did those players get nominated for Sportsmanship Award?

Sharapova / Bartoli / Azarenka / Rezaď
Cornet / Karatantcheva / Kirilenko
Safina / Dulko / Görges / Shvedova
Fedak / Czink / Harkleroad / Gallovits
Kleybanova / A.Bondarenko / Watson

Because they are really nice for the others players. They always wish good luck to everyone in the tournaments.

btw Really hard to choose

Jankovic | Goerges | Petkovic | Safarova | Hsieh | Tsurenko
Azarenka | Mitu | Voegele | Beck | Muguruza | Cibulkova
Koehler | Mladenovic | Garcia | Robson | Cepelova | Duval
Babos | Ormaechea | Jaksic | Gasparyan | Soylu
Allgurin | Kontaveit | Zacarias | Pigossi | Haddad Maia | Abduraimova
Konjuh | Bencic | Komardina | Haas | Jorovic | Galfi | Stollar

Re: S3 Awards

One nomination for Safina ...... biggest letdown ...... what a sad season! Although I did take out my maiden Title, ah well there's always next season!

Love the game
