Re: So does this weekend pretty much determine player of the year?
Let me try this
How many times has Serena beaten these players in 2012?
Maria, vika, Aga, Petra . Top 5 except Petra
she beat Maria and Vika on fast slippery surfaces(grass , blueclay) and not even managed to reach them on all others
And when speaking about accomplishment H2H is irrelevant. Serena lost in the 1st round of FO and 4th round of AO and can't compensate it with her H2H vs top players.
If Serena wins US Open , her 2012 achievements will be greater than anyone's in the tour this year..
