Re: Player Of The Month: April

Serena

She:

made the biggest ranking jump, won the biggest title, and is the only person not have a match point converted against her.


although, I do think that Jelena's had an AMAZING April....it's a toughie, but I say Serena, because she's had the better quality wins this month than anyone else

I agree. Everyone of them would deserve it. But personally, I vote for Jelena (not hard to imagine ), because it was her very first Tier I tournament win and also a pretty exciting one. This means a lot to me and to all her fans and supporters on this board and elsewhere. So, of course, all kudos to Jelena.

But also BRAVO for Tati and Serena.

Re: Player Of The Month: April

you could make a case for all three. picked serena because she won the event with the best field beating the world number one and had more quality wins along the way. if she could have got deep into charleston it would be her without question, but because she lost early it makes her april almost equal to tati and jakovics.
