I can't decide if this train wreck is worse than the hot mess that was the Robson award thread...

I can't at the sheer magnitude of seething over these WTA awards.

Exactly. And that's all there is to it really. Nothing good will come from wailing and whining about it in here when you don't like the result.

This is just too funny really. I really dont care for these types of awards. But at least its comical.

There was nothing inappropriate or odd in Aga's reaction. Of course she expressed her excitement about it, there is nothing wrong with that, girls like to be popular. And apart from being a superb tennis player she is also a regular girl.

It's a bit pathetic to have the Fan Favourite awards on the roll of honour page. Especially the Twitter, Facebook and Video awards.

This explains why having 10 million likes on FB doesn't automatically mean the player is "liked" or that they are POPULAR

I hope this is a big lesson to you folks obsessed with numbers ... "all that glitters is not gold"

Congrats to the all the award winners, my favorite being the doubles pairing of the Williams sisters - they're sooo good that their matches are better than men's singles competition

Or maybe it simply shows that true beauty (or popularity) goes deeper than skin and glamour.....

Why is Aga so popular?

Sure, she seems nice but her fan base isn't particularly big
