Guess who will win the 2011 WTA Awards

My guess for now:

Player of the Year: (need to wait for US Open and YEC)
Most Improved Player: Petra Kvitova
Newcomer of the Year: Ksenia Pervak
Comeback Player of the Year: Sabine Lisicki / Serena Williams

EDIT:

I think Kvitova will win both Player of the Year award and Most Improved Player award if she manages to win the YEC this year.

This has happened before in 2004 when Sharapova won both awards after winning Wimbledon and YEC that year, which would exactly be the same achievement for Petra this year if she wins YEC.

Sharapova also won the Newcomer of the Year award the year before (2003). Petra also won this award last year.

Player of the Year: Petra Kvitova
Most Improved Player: Petra Kvitova
Newcomer of the Year: Ksenia Pervak
Comeback Player of the Year: Sabine Lisicki (I think Serena played way too few tournaments this year to be considered a comeback)

Not a chance. McHale will get it for beating World No.1


Ksenia reached the 4th round of Wimbledon, a WTA final and currently ranked higher than McHale

Irina Begu will be newcomer of the year

Outside top-200 to top-50 (and is #32 in WTA race), reaching the final of 2 WTA events, higher ranked than both Pervak & McHale.

Wozniacki will never win a GS. She is too limited and too dumb. And lately she lost advantage of her bullterrier's grip.

Re: Guess who will win the 2011 WTA Awards

Player of the Year: If Maria wins USO then it will probably be her. If she manages to reah number 1 aswell, then she'll definately get it. If not, then it will probably be Li.
Most Improved: Kvitova
Newcomer: Mchale/Pervak/Goerges/Begu
Comeback: Serena if she goes far at USO/has a pretty great rest of reason. I could see them giving it to Lisicki.

Re: Guess who will win the 2011 WTA Awards

Comeback player of the year will obviously be Serena. No discussion even possible. Actually if she wins the US Open and the YEC, she may even be player of the year!

Begu, McHale or someone already more established.
Last time Kvitova won that award when she wasn't really that new.

Re: Guess who will win the 2011 WTA Awards

I was thinking about this a few days ago .

Player of the Year: Very hard to say, but probably Na Li or Petra Kvitova, depending who ends the year ranked higher. Possibly Serena Williams though if she can win the US Open and YEC, although they will probably be hesitant since she only played for half the year. However, should Caroline Wozniacki or Maria Sharapova win the US Open and/or YEC, then one of them would probably take it.
Doubles Team of the Year: Most likely Kveta Peschke/Katarina Srebotnik.
Most Improved Player: Very tight between Petra Kvitova and Na Li. Maybe whichever ends ranked higher? Or maybe if one gets POY then the other will get this...
Newcomer of the Year: No obvious choice at all! Should Irina Begu, Ksenia Pervak, Christina McHale, or Bojana Jovanovski win a title it would probably be one of them. Otherwise, probably Begu for reaching two finals, although I think Bojo could take it, as she has the bigger game.
Comeback Player of the Year: Serena Williams.
Player Service: I never know for this one maybe Liezel Huber for organizing the hair donation though?
Karan Krantscke Sportsmanship Award: Kim Clijsters, most likely.
Diamond Aces: Maybe Caroline Wozniacki, as she seems tireless. Doesn't this have rankings though?
Humanitarian of the Year: Hard to say... Liezel Huber maybe .

My number one: Victoria Azarenka

ATP: Novak Djoković

Crazy Frenchies! Gilles Simon Alizι Cornet
