Halep, she improved from 3 titles last season to 1 title this season and world number 1! Amazing feat

Re: Who will win 2017 WTA Most Improved Player award?

it will probably go to Ostapenko, as a slam winner but I would like Garcia to get it

Re: Who will win 2017 WTA Most Improved Player award?

Svitolina showed a steady improvement since the beginning of the year.
Ostapenko out of nowhere won RG, but she backed it up going deep in Slams and in the tour
Garcia steadily reaching latter rounds of the big tournaments since RG, and peaking in China

Really hard to say, but I think Penko's results are just so much memorable, so Aljona it is

Re: Who will win 2017 WTA Most Improved Player award?

Most likely Ostapenko. From around #47 and no titles to top 10, 2 titles including a slam and qualification for YEC. Though like @Ceze and @gerard24 my preference is Garcia...

Svitolina is also a contender.

Ostapenko.

If Ostapenko wins YEC and takes POTY Award, then Garcia.

Re: Who will win 2017 WTA Most Improved Player award?

Garcia's improvement has been more gradual than Jelena's, but therefore not less impressive. So for me, it is a toss-up between those two (I do not think winning a Slam necessarily trumps great performances elsewhere). I am convinced that both will qualify for YEC, so it depends on their performance at Singapore.

I'd give it to Ostapenko.

Svitolina would be my second choice. She was a steady Top 20 player for years but suddenly she made Top 3 and won three big titles.

POTY and Most Improved has been awarded to the same player before.
