Question WTA award "the most improved player in 2006". Who will get it?

The last year winner was Ana Ivanovic.

For this year the award should go to Anna Chakvetadze, I think.
Other proposals?

Yes, Jelena might be a contender too.
The facts against her are that she has finished last year in the top 20, if I recall it correctly (Chakvetadze outside) and she has not won a title (Chaky has Guangzhou and Moscow). Linz might bring decision between two of them.

Peer was in my mind too. Her improvement is obvious. But after her todays severe defeat from Petrova and recalling the similar result against Justine by the USO I do not think she can cope with the other two.

How about someone with one title in their entire WTA career, who wins two Tier 1's and three Tier 2's in the same year ?? My vote goes to Nadia Petrova

didnt she just win another tier II?

i think she will be overlooked because her ranking was already high and she hasnt had a very good slam year

but you're right, she has had an amazing year
