Re: The player of the year?
Petra, duh. Near as makes no difference as many ranking points as Woz. This question should be easy to answer: simply ask which of these players would other members of the top 10 least want to see in their quarter of a slam draw? To ask the question is to answer it. No one in the top 10 should be worried about playing Caro or Li. They should rather like their chances, as the YEC showed. But they should be very worried about playing Petra, because if she's on -- and all I mean by that is keeping her winners equal to her errors -- then she will beat your fave, and there won't be anything they can do about it.
