Re: who is supposed to capture WTA Newcomer Award this year?

Vesnina won't get it as she is already about 20 years old, and it usually goes to a teenager. Besides, she isn't really all that well known. She's had some impressive top 20 victories, but aside from WTA Worlders I don't think many people even know who she is.

I'm picking Aga Radwanska to get it. Biggest ranking jump, a top 10 scalp, a GS fourth round on debut, and some very impressive showings at high tier events.

Vania King is also a very strong contender. Top 50 ranking, and a WTA title

Aga will probably win it.
Vania would be the dark horse, I say.
But I hope it's Aravane!

This list of players is impressive by itself. Great progress for these girls.

I would pick Aga.
