Re: Predict who are gonna win 2012 WTA Awards

POTY: Victoria Azarenka (unless Williams wins US Open AND Vika doesn't win YEC)
Most Improved: Angelique Kerber
Newcomer: Timea Babos (the fact that McHale didn't get it last year shows they don't go on hype and thus won't give it to Laura)
Comeback: Venus Williams
Doubles: Errani/Vinci (or whoever wins YEC)
Sportsmanship: Kim Clijsters
Fan favorite: Kim Clijsters
Humanitarian and player service: no idea…*what have players done ?

My number one: Victoria Azarenka

ATP: Novak Djoković

They usually gave it to someone who made a splash in a slam.

They gave it to Kvitova (2010), Oudin (2009), Szavay (2007)

That's why I was surprised they gave it to Begu instead of Pervak (who made Wimbledon 4R) last year.

Re: Predict who are gonna win 2012 WTA Awards

Player of the year: Serena has the edge as of right now with her Wimbledon title and Gold Medal but this title can still be decided with the US Open and the Year End Championship.

Most Improved: Kerber for sure. She has won the most matches this year and has made career bests at the other slams.

Comeback: Hard to say. Maybe Venus. Maybe Shvedova.

Newcomer might go to Sloane imo and it'll probably be a definite lock if she beats Ivanovic (big if). This being her slam results over the past year (3R, 4R, 3R, 3R with good chance of QF so far) and she made two WTA Semifinals this year. If not Sloane then Timea for winning her first WTA title earlier this year.

Agreed on the rest.

Begu literally made NO sense . McFail beat the number one and made some splash at the US Open (beat Bartoli) and Pervak had won a title, made a final, and Wimby fourth round. Begu had two finals . And she hasn't done a thing this year .

My number one: Victoria Azarenka

ATP: Novak Djoković

Re: Predict who are gonna win 2012 WTA Awards

I believe Rena won't win POTY. Her RG R1 exit definitely has tainted her resume for this year.
Masha and Vika are the only players left for that title. Whoever does better in USO and YEC will get it.

Petra had 1R exit at US Open last year and still won the award.

Because no one stepped up last year. This year Masha and Vika are pretty consistent (better than what Petra achieved last year), so Rena's chances definitely become slimmer compared to when Petra won.
Anyways, if Rena manages to win USO and YEC, she'll probably win (but still that RG performance )
