Re: WTA Announces 2012 Player Award Nominees

Serena.
Venus.
Errani. (Kerber had a slam semi before - Errani had nothing.)
Newcomer? How are Watson, Robson, and Stephens NEWCOMERS? I know what the WTA considers it, but they should just rename it - young star who broke out finally - that's not a newcomer. I'll go with Robson.
Errani/Vinci.

Re: WTA Announces 2012 Player Award Nominees

These newcomers aren't really newcomers .

1. Vika
2. Shvedova (I'd vote Vee but she didn't really go anywhere to begin with)
3. Errani
4. -
5.

I'm feelin' they jealous, like I'm Monica Seles.

Re: WTA Announces 2012 Player Award Nominees

1) Serena
2) I imagine Vee or Slava will win this. despite the fact that Flipkens was out of the top 200 earlier this year. She just did it in a lot more methodical manner. Rather than the deep slam run of Slava.
3) my vote would be errani, 1final 1sf 1qf from relatively nothing, kerber showed what she was capable of in 2011.
4) I actually think lepchenko should have been in this category, as it stands though Watson and Robson are the obvious choices. I think the Li/Clijsters run will tip it for Laura though.
5) Had Errani/Vinci won YEC I think this would be NID, however Williams' may edge it now.

Re: WTA Announces 2012 Player Award Nominees

So the other three teams I assume are the ones that were in YEC?

So what happens when a friend or partner holds a different opinion against your favorite?

I suspect makarova/vesnina over huber/Raymond.
That's only guessing though.

I would like that if it's the case, no need Huber on there

I'd like to see

Serena
Hsieh
Errani
Watson
Errani/Vinci

wins the award, but in reality I think it's going to be...

Serena
Shvedova
Errani
Robson
Serena/Venus
