If Davenport can finish the year at #1 w/o a Slam...

then Lena Dementieva should be able to win Player of the Year Award without a Slam as well. Davenport, Serena, Mauresmo, Sharapova, Kuznetsova, Henin, and Myskina are all contenders for this award, but IMO Lena D really deserves it and i hope she wins.

To me, if Maria wins YEC, she's it. Else, Davenport.

Elena should defnitely considered, but I don't know if she will win considering her other results at other Grand Slams, and the YEC has been really disappointing too.

no way Davenport should get Player of the Year without even a Slam final (OR Olympic OR YEC final) - she got #1 because she had the most points, fair enough, but the Player of the Year should be the player with the most compelling performances at the biggest events, and there's no way in hell Davenport qualifies for that. It's a scam if she wins - and the same goes for Mauresmo. If Sharapova beats Serena tomorrow, yeah, i could definitely see her winning it, i think most people wouldn't have a problem with Masha being chosen.

honestly, I like Elena and I think she is a great player,

But how can you be player of the year with multiple first round losses and no GSs is beyond me. Also her biggest (and only) title was a tier 3.

Of course Davenport shouldn't be either without even a GS final, no argument, the player of the year has to be one of the 4 GS winners.

I'd give it to Myskina or Henin-Hardenne. Justine still has a better record and title haul than any of the other GS titlist.

I agree. She's no where near to being player of the year...

Even the winner of the YEC will have beaten during that tournament. I don't think there should be a Player of the Year this year. It should be a 6-way tie!

What are the qualifications for the WTA player of the year anyway?

It's not shyness I have. It's just that I'm not one of those people who loves to open a newspaper of magazine and see myself all the time. I don't like that at all. I prefer to play my tennis which I love, and with which I've been blessed.

Heeeelll no! Elena has two GS finals and a title in Hasselt, plus Miami and Moscow finals. Every other competitor had boatloads of more titles, #1, or a slam, and in many cases both.

Maria will win it no question if she wins YEC tomorrow. If not I will give 50% chance to Maria 50% to Justine

Lindsay's record this year is amazing.....for a player who was a certanty to retire after the us open to achieve what she has in 4 months is amazing....she's had a catalogue of serious injurys over the past 2 years and for her to come back and regain the number 1 slot is great. she has won 7 titles....been in 2 other finals....and apart from the french open has at least reached the QTRS in evry tournement...
everyone else has been too inconsistant

Hmmm......this year is gonna be tough. I think they´re gonna give it to Lindsay, just for sentimental reasons.

Always bet on black!
