Re: Six of the Best / Worst of 2006 WTA Season

How can you people put Nicole as the most disappointing young player of 2006 when she finished in the top 10, made the RG semis, and went far in a lot of other tournaments?

Re: Six of the Best / Worst of 2006 WTA Season

Best of 2006
Best Player of the Year: Justine Henin-Hardenne
Best Tournament (including Slams): Wimbledon
Most Promising Young / Future Player: Nicole Vaidisova
Best / Most Memorable Moment of the Year: For me it was Severine Bremond's incredible run through qualifying all the way to Wimbledon QFs.
Best Match of the Year: Sharapova/Tati at Miami was the best match I saw despite the unfortunate ending.
Greatest Achievment Award (players who did brilliantly despite of misgivings, injuries, problems, etc): Either Jelena Jankovic for her rebound from a dismal start to the season or Hingis for her comeback to tennis.


Worst of 2006
Worst Player of the Year: Anastasia Myskina was the worst player among established players. Sania Mirza, Maria Kirilenko, and Iveta Benesova had pretty forgetable campaigns as well.
Worst Tournament (including Slams): Rogers Cup for all the withdrawals
Most Disappointing Young / Future Player: Lucie Safarova- disappeared after a good start.
Worst / Most Controversial Moment of the Year: Most controversial moment was probably Sharapova's reaction to Tati's injury in Miami.
Worst Match of the Year: Maria Sharapova/Elena Dementieva in the Indian Wells final was pretty awful.
The "I Screw Up This Year": Ana Ivanovic- I feel aside from her win in Rogers Cup she didn't really perform as well as most expected.

Petra Kvitova
Golovin-Dementieva-Likhovtseva-Beltrame-Benešová-Chakvetadze-Szávay-Paszek-Cirstea
