My thoughts exactly. While Stephens doesn't show glimpses of pure awesomeness as Laura does, she established herself as a steady consistent player who's going to stick in the top for much time, yet young and ready to progress more.

However, it would've been kinda' strange for them to not give the award for an up-and-coming player who ended the career of the mighty Clijsters and who won an Olympic silver, even with the big inconsistencies she had along the way.
