TennisForum Award - Player Of The Month [September] is Jelena JANKOVIC

Hello Everybody

I thought we could add up a new feature in GM which would be a player of the month award chosen by ourselves. In order to create the poll I took the players with the 10 best results this month (based on the amount of ranking points won). The tournaments for this month are : US Open, Bali, Tokyo, Guangzhou, Beijing & Seoul.

Here are the 10 Nominees (in alphabetical order) :

Elena DEMENTIEVA (US Open SF, Tokyo QF)
Jelena JANKOVIC (US Open RU, Tokyo QF, Beijing WR)
Svetlana KUZNETSOVA (US Open R3, Tokyo RU, Beijing RU)
Flavia PENNETTA (US Open QF, Bali QF, Tokyo R2)
Nadia PETROVA (US Open R3, Bali SF, Tokyo SF)
Dinara SAFINA (US Open SF, Tokyo WR)
Patty SCHNYDER (US Open QF, Bali WR)
Katarina SREBOTNIK (US Open R4, Tokyo SF, Beijing R1)
Serena WILLIAMS (US Open WR)
Vera ZVONAREVA (US Open R2, Guangzhou WR, Beijing SF)

Don't hesitate to correct me if I made any mistake

This can't last. This misery can't last. I must remember that and try to control myself. Nothing lasts really. Neither happiness nor despair. Not even life lasts very long. There'll come a time in the future when I shan't mind about this anymore, when I can look back and say quite peacefully and cheerfully how silly I was. No, no, I don't want that time to come ever. I want to remember every minute, always, always to the end of my days.

Very good idea , but you must to know that it's NEVER happen that for "Player Of The Month" will be 10 contenders, so 10 poll options you must use much better. So i suggest you to close this poll and open new with 3 candidates which include #1, #2 and #3 player of the month choice (for example):

Option 1 - (#1)Serena Williams , (#2)Jelena Jankovic , (#3)Dinara Safina
Option 2 - (#1)Serena Williams , (#2)Dinara Safina , (#3)Jelena Jankovic
Option 3 - (#1)Jelena Jankovic , (#2)Serena Williams , (#3)Dinara Safina
Option 4 - (#1)Jelena Jankovic , (#2)Dinara Safina , (#3)Serena Williams
Option 5 - (#1)Dinara Safina , (#2)Serena Williams , (#3)Jelena Jankovic
Option 6 - (#1)Dinara Safina , (#2)Jelena Jankovic , (#3)Serena Williams

(alternate is 5 candidates with #1 and #2 choice)

Also ranking points which player reach at tournaments not must be crucial for contenders selection - for me personaly septembers TOP10 list must include Groenfeld b/c impressive comeback at USO or even Coco W. winner of juniors USO or even unranked Laura Robson with her very good professional debut at 75K ITF tournament.

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)

I thought about this too, but chose the 10 options scenario instead... It allows lower-level player to be featured in it every now and then too
