Throughout the week, wtatennis.com has been revealing the WTA Player Awards voted for by the international media - first Comeback Player Of The Year Yaroslava Shvedova, then Newcomer Of The Year Laura Robson, then Doubles Team Of The Year Sara Errani and Roberta Vinci and Most Improved Player Errani, and finally the big one, Player Of The Year Serena Williams. Today it's time for the fans and players to be heard with the last wave of 2012 WTA Player Awards.

The Karen Krantzcke Sportsmanship Award, recognizing professionalism, attitude and sense of fair play, and the Player Service Award, which recognizes the player who has done the most to support fellow players through the WTA Players' Council and other initiatives, are both voted for by the WTA players themselves, and it was a pair of former No.1s who got the nods - the Karen Krantzcke Sportsmanship Award went to Kim Clijsters and the Player Service Award went to Venus Williams.

Last but certainly not least, the Fan Favorite Awards - for seven days last week, over 65,000 of you cast your vote in five award categories, and needless to say, Agnieszka Radwanska seems to be very popular - see below for the results of the five Fan Favorite awards:

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%).

Fan Favorite Doubles Team: The Williams Sisters
~ There were five teams to choose from and it was Venus Williams and Serena Williams who finished first with 36.0% of the votes (Maria Kirilenko and Nadia Petrova came in second place with 25.5%).

Fan Favorite Twitter: Caroline Wozniacki
~ There were five Twitter pages to choose from and it was Caroline Wozniacki who finished first with 42.0% of the votes (Serena Williams came in second place with 24.9%).

Fan Favorite Facebook: Agnieszka Radwanska
~ There were five Facebook pages to choose from and it was Agnieszka Radwanska who finished first with a whopping 46.5% of the votes (Maria Sharapova came in second place with 24.0%).

Fan Favorite Video: Agnieszka Radwanska & The Bee
~ There were five videos to choose from and in the most dominant Fan Favorite victory of the day it was Agnieszka Radwanska's battle with a bee that won, earning 48.7% of the vote (the Strong Is Beautiful ad came in second place with 20.8%).

Player Awards 2012:
Comeback Player Of The Year: Yaroslava Shvedova (TF, WTA)
Newcomer Of The Year: Laura Robson (TF, WTA)
Doubles Team Of The Year: Sara Errani & Roberta Vinci (TF, WTA)
Most Improved Player Of The Year: Sara Errani (TF, WTA)

I could see into a couple of shock results, but pretty much all of these are except maybe doubles. Although I expected Andi/Lucie to win that and Serena to get Twitter instead.

I really didn't expect Aga to win the Facebook Award. 46.5%! It's interesting if we compare the number of likes the nominees have on FB:

Sharapova 8.7 Mill
Ivanovic 722.000
Azarenka 182.000
Radwanska 121.000
Kvitova 104.000

Anyway, congrats to all award winners of 2012!
