Espys nomination for best female tennis player.

Ok so the nominated players are Justine, Maria, and Ana. Now Im not trying to hate on either one of them but arent these nominations based on 2007? If so how are Maria and mainly Ana nominated over Venus and Serena

Re: Espys nomination for best female tennis player.

Justine is a shoe in. I've yet to see outstanding from Ana

"Hatred is the coward's revenge for being intimidated" - George Bernard Shaw




"And for the best of the teen-agers who followed her, and who occasionally referred to her as over the hill, Graf had a ready answer: against top-ranked Martina Hingis, Graf wound up 7-2. Graf's stirring 4-6, 7-5, 6-2 throttling of Hingis at the French Open final this June was perhaps the most emphatic parting shot the game has ever seen. "

Beats me. Or they included the results of 2008 until FO?

Your sig picture exceeds the 200 pixel height limit.

Australian Open 2010 Final Result:-
Lost to Serena Williams 4-6, 6-3, 2-6 (Great job, girl! Now prepare for FO!)

Re: Espys nomination for best female tennis player.

For 2007? Neither Maria or Ana should win that. Maria sucked in 2007. Ana didn't do anything truly spectacular either. Justine HANDS-DOWN.

Waiting for Ana Ivanovic to just retire already .
Justine Henin. Amelie Mauresmo. Francesca Schiavone.

They always nominated 3 players even if winner is obvious like Henin after last season results. Serena played last season just three months (between AO and Miami) and same case with Venus (between Wimbledon and USO). Maria started and finished season with good results (finals of AO and YEC) but rest of season is total disaster for her standards (except San Diego and RG). Kuznetsova and Jankovic reach #2 and #3 at end of season, but except Sveta USO final (+1 tier-II title) and JJ 2 tier-I titles (+1 GS SF) they dont have any impressive result to be mentoned. Ana Ivanovic with slam final and semifinal, tier-I title and final and 2 tier-II titles with by far most TOP10 wins after Henin is "real #2" last season, so she deserved this nomination. Only thing which i never understand about Espys award is how Sharapova reach this award for 2006 season ahead double slam champion Mauresmo and Henin which reach all-4 GS finals (+RG title)?

and I'm not even fan of Ana Ivanovic... just an objective observer who realize how perfect she is

AMAZING BELGRADE MIRACLE: In just three years (2008-2011) 5 different players born in same city reach world #1 in rankings and several GS titles and finals (WTA singles: Ana Ivanovic and Jelena Jankovic, ATP singles: Novak Djokovic, ATP doubles: Nenad Zimonjic and Daniel Nestor... with notable performances of Bojana Jovanovski, Janko Tipsarevic and Viktor Troicki which is also all three born in Belgrade)

Re: Espys nomination for best female tennis player.

Even if Maria would be like #20 she would probably still be nominated because she's Sharapova.
Anyway, Maria
