My flag has nothing to do with my view on this. I try to base my opinions on facts. Niculescu is also Romanian but I hope she loses every match she plays because I can't stand her style of play. I'm not a nationalist fanatic

Re: After today SIMONA HALEP deserves most improved Player of the Year NOT SLOANE !

Aside from two slam results Sloane is a reasonably consistent 1-2 round winner on tour. Halep strung together very good winning streaks on tour but was kind of bad at the slams. Even weighting the slams more heavily I'd say Simona based on tennis results.

However because it's voted on by the tennis media and it is more heavily weighted towards western Europe and the English-speaking it wouldn't surprise me if it were Sloane.

It has nothing to do with that. Nonsense. It depends on what criteria they use. If it's performance, Simona will win it, although, as we have seen, you can go pretty far if you perform steady without winning anything major. If they take the rankings into account, Madison or Bouchard could win it. They both have climbed pretty high and are now in the Top 40 and are sure bets to be in the Top 20 next year.

Keys and Bouchard are more in line for Newcomer of the year I would think.

Bouchard - Most Improved? Never. She is a newcomer.

As for the title, Stephens has the advantage of being an American and the hype around her name. Based on tennis results, Simona deserves it more.

Re: After today SIMONA HALEP deserves most improved Player of the Year NOT SLOANE !

Hopefully it won't be the same story like in ATP last year, when Klizan got the award for winning Sankt Petersburg and he's now one of the biggest mugs playing, and Janowicz achieved much more than him and he isn't even nominated this year. But they were awarding players before the last event
Award for Halep, any other result will be a bad option.

Both are deserving candidates. Personally, I'd give it to Halep (despite Sloane's twin demolitions of her in Australia), but it would be fun to see the hatefest that developed if Sloane won.

The hatefest has been going on since January.

Re: After today SIMONA HALEP deserves most improved Player of the Year NOT SLOANE !

People seem to forget that Simona had a horrific start of the year. She was 47 at the beginning of the year and dropped to 62 or 63 by May. But then she managed that awesome run in Rome and something clicked for hear. She lost in the first round at RG against CSN but in the next 2 slams she gave Na Li a run for her money in the 2nd round of Wimbledon and reached the 4th round in US Open. I think people should wait to see how she does in slams in 2014 before saying she can only get good results in smaller tournaments, as I've seen a lot of this happening.
Newcomers cannot be considered for the MIP award, that's nonsense in my opinion. That's why they created the NOTY award.

Re: After today SIMONA HALEP deserves most improved Player of the Year NOT SLOANE !

If there was a "I don't get the hype" award, Stephens would have it wrapped up.


Making the YEC after reaching only 2 SFs (both in Jaunary, and one was the AO, and it came with a win over Goatrena Williams), she's made 5 QFs in the 20 subsequent events she's played. She's lost in the first or second round 7 times.

That's not improvement. That's 1 great month (10-3 in January, where she earned over 30% of her points for the year) and AWFULLY mediocre after that.


Halep has earned the Most Improved Award for SURE!

Career Grand Slam in your 20s? Been there done that. Career golden slam your 30s?
There's only 1.
Serena.
