Once again I will say, I have nothing against Errani, but really, GS champion? It takes much more. But, good luck Errani.
Saving Roland Garros in the process.

To be honest, even though I voted Na whimsically due to not wanting another slamless #1, due credit to Maria. Imagine Errani (as much as I admire her personality) winning RG and then being the first victim of a Golden Set in the Open Era a few weeks later, would put fuel to the fire about the weakness of the WTA of late.

No. She should have performed well in Cincinnati too, I think. In addition, Li defeated her in quarterfinal, it's not like it was in a match which could have given to Aga the #1 spot.

By the way, I'm not sure to understand why Serena saved the WTA in Wimbledon. What do you want. Aga would have won, then she would have become No.1 holding a prestigious GS title (Wimbledon), 2 Premier Mandatories (Beijing and Miami), and 4 other Premier titles (Tokyo, Carlsbad, Dubai, Brussels). If that's not enough to be considered as a No.1...

There's no 'savior' of the WTA. Just some players who defeated other players because they were better at the moment and deserved their win. This thread is actually just another one asking by detours "Who is the player you hate the most", so not interesting.

Sharapova by far. Never rooted for her that much in my life.

Radwanska getting to #1 for 5 minutes or Niculescu winning a MM would not have had the same impact or importance as Errani winning a Grand Slam. Maria saved WTA for me.

I agree, but there's really nothing to consider. Whoever has the most points is the real #1. Whether people like that player or not is (to use a popular GM word) irrelevant. It's like saying that Li or Stosur weren't the real FO and USO champions of 2011 because there are several other players around who were expected to win instead of them.

Yes, that's a fact. I was just showing that Radwanska would have been a true No.1 following most of their "reasoning", and that they would have been completely contradictory with themselves by being shocked if it had occured

Sharapova vs Errani
Williams S vs Radwanska
Williams S vs Azarenka

2 saves from one-slam wonders and flukes and one save from a new multiple slam winner , all of them didn't deserve such achievements in 2012 , maybe later if they try harder and play better, but not in 2012

Maria Sharapova
Career Grand Slam Winner
Wimbledon 2004 ~ US Open 2006 ~ Australian Open 2008 ~ French Open 2012 and 2014

WTA Championships 2004
London Olympics silver medallist

35 WTA titles , including 14 Tier I titles
21 weeks #1 player

Azarenka didn't deserve a second GS title this year? Argue, please.

Re: Which Hero Had The Best "Saved The SEWTA" Moment of 2012 ???

Oh there were many of them, even though only one is included in the poll, which is London Olympics.

So I'd start here:
Vika trashing the Shrieking Razor in Melbourne, thus preventing the world from growing facial hair.
Vika trashing the Shrieking Razor in Indian Wells.
Aga trolling Guardians by leaving the Shrieking Razor Miamiless.
Sarin trashing the Shrieking Razor in Madrid.
Sarin TRASHING the Shrieking Razor in London.
Vika making the Shrieking Razor her ***** in NYC.
Vika dismissing the Shrieking Razor in Beijing.
Sarin being kind to allow the Shrieking Razor to get some games in Istanbul.

why are you trolling for the sake of trolling?and that too not in an intelligent way. Calling players by insulting names just disgraces yourself. I am a fan of both masha and vika,serena too. Gm is already trolled enough by the 3 mashatards giving the entire fanbase a wondrful reputation. Dont let them drag you to their level. Most of vika's fans here are reasonable. Let it remain that way. And i agree with the poster that said this is anöther hate thread. Not a surprise though.
