Gotta love the insecurity of Masha fans.

As if there is any doubt as to which WTA player is most popular worldwide. And as if winning a popularity contest is any kind of meaningful achievement in its own right.

No offense to Kim, but I'm a bit disappointed the sportsmanship award wasn't awarded to somebody who played a full season. This award is (or should be) too important to be thrown as a consolation bone to a departing star. Not saying she's not a good sport, but there were good candidates who played a full calendar who deserved it more than her this year.

- Caroline Wozniacki has never beaten a reigning world #1.
- Caroline Wozniacki has never beaten a top 5 player at a major.
- Caroline Wozniacki has not beaten a top 3 player en route to any of her 23 titles.
- Caroline Wozniacki has beaten two top 5 players en route to her 23 titles (#4 Zvonareva and #5 Schiavone)

-Her fans think she had very bad luck with her Grand Slam and Regular Tour draws.

Honestly I really think Venus deserves a comeback player of the year and sportsmanship award.
She's the one who always makes amazing comebacks, but WTA failed to recognize her contribution in 05, 07 and 12.
And needless to say the sportsmanship award. Not saying Kim doesn't deserve, but Venus has always been a great fighter and gracious player, which is what sportsmanship means.

I really think Aga is much more a WTA favorite player than fan favorite player.

Fan Favorite Singles Player: Agnieszka Radwanska
~ Though there were 13 players to choose from, a whopping 42.8% of the votes went to Agnieszka Radwanska, with Li Na coming in second (27.0%), Maria Sharapova third (10.9%) and Serena Williams fourth (5.1%)

Epic LOL

Some odd results...Caro for twitter and Aga for internet?! Hmm, ok..

Always bet on black!
Can you handle the truth?

Well, that's nice.
You know that very few of the facebook fans are actually fans of the player but more like fans of the star image?
And in addition I doubt Sharapova or Serena mentioned their nominations in their social media accounts, unlike Aga and Caro.

Pironkova.Kostova.Petrova.Kerber.Schnyder. Stosur.Jankovic.Kuznetsova.
Pavlyuchenkova.Niculescu.Radwanska.Date-Krumm.Kvitova.Vinci.Muguruza.

Vesnina.Falconi.Paszek.Shvedova.Bacsinszky.Van Uytvanck.Voegele
