Is Date eligible for Comeback? Maybe for Newcomer?

Player of the Year: Serena.
Most Improved Player: Francesca.
Impressive Newcomer : Anastija Sevastova? She won a Title and beat Jankovic.
Comeback: Kimiko, Justine or Kaia.

Would not be surprising to see Wozniacki receiving some kind of award.

Impressive Newcomer: Kanepi
- she may not be new per se, but boy she has made a name of herself recently. She would deserve it.

Re: Who will get 2010 WTA awards?

Player of the Year: Serena will win it unless Kim wins the WTA Championships then Kim will win it.

Most Improved: The French Open final was basically the final for this award too. Schiavone wins unless Stosur tears up the final 2 months of the season.

Impressive Newcomer: This award should just be left blank. The dearth of young talent in the game has become increasingly distressing and has hit its apex this year. Probably that fat long named Russian who can only get 3 games off Schiavone and Date by default.

Comeback: Date or Kanepi should win it. Unfortunately Henin will probably win it because of her name but she doesnt deserve it. Her comeback thus far has been a big dissapointment.

She made a slam final and won 2 titles, which is more than Kanepi or Date can say. Just because she may not have lived up to your expectations doesn't mean she doesn't deserve the comeback award.

Re: Who will get 2010 WTA awards?

Date and Kanepi are not former #1s or 7 slam Champions. Date was 39 years old. Relative to expectations and past standards both have done far better than Henin has. I dont think you should be awarded a comeback award for doing much worse than you were expected to do by most in your comeback.

Nobody can seriously say in practical terms Henin's comeback has been more of a success than Date's.
