VTV-tennisprestatie van het jaar

De pre-nominaties voor de verkiezing van de 'VTV-tennisprestatie van het jaar' en de 'VTV-belofte van het jaar' (zie andere thread) zijn bekend. Op 11 december worden de nominaties officieel bekendgemaakt en gehuldigd.


Wie zouden jullie kiezen? (Bij de verkiezing worden er respectievelijk 5, 3, 2 en 1 punten toegekend)


DE GENOMINEERDEN


Ameryckx, Brigitte
Na de bevalling van haar 1ste kindje maakte Brigitte Ameryckx haar comeback in het rolstoeltennis en behaalde zij intussen opnieuw de 14de plaats op de wereldranking dankzij winst in PTR/ROHO Championships ($15.000, South Carolina, USA) en de Ath Open ($7.500, België)

Belgisch Fed Cup Team
Het Belgische Fed Cup Team bevestigde ook dit jaar zijn plaats in de wereldgroep. In april namen Kim Clijsters, Els Callens, Kirsten Flipkens en Elke Clijsters het op tegen het Kroatisch team. Zowel Kim Clijsters als Els Callens wonnen hun enkelspel en brachten ons land zo op een onoverbrugbare voorsprong. Dankzij deze overwinning plaatste het team zich voor de kwartfinale in de wereldgroep. In deze ontmoeting haalde thuisploeg Spanje een duur bevochten 3-2 overwinning na knap verweer (het was immers de langste ontmoeting die België ooit gespeeld heeft) van het Belgische team bestaande uit Els Callens, Kirsten Flipkens, Caroline Maes en Evelyne Van Hyfte.

Butkiewicz, Leslie
Leslie Butkiewicz won dit jaar 3 internationale tornooien, zijnde het $25.000 tornooi van Nantes en de $10.000 tornooien van Westende en Zwevegem. Zij maakte hierdoor een sprong van meer dan 100 plaatsen op de WTA-ranking.

Callens, Els
Ook dit jaar overtrof Els Callens telkens zichzelf tijdens de Fed Cup-ontmoetingen. In de ontmoeting tegen Kroatië zorgde Els Callens voor het beslissende punt tegen Jelena Kostanic waardoor België zich plaatste voor de kwartfinale in de wereldgroep. Tijdens deze kwartfinale trad Els Callens opnieuw aan en versloeg ze de Spaanse Virginia Ruano Pascual na een slopende wedstrijd met 2-6, 6-4, 11-0 en bracht ze België zo op een 0-2 voorsprong.

Clijsters, Kim
Kim Clijsters maakte dit jaar een opmerkelijke seizoenstart door zich te plaatsen voor de finale op de Australian Open na winst tegen Anastasia Myskina en Patty Schnyder. Vervolgens won ze ook nog de Tier-II tornooien ($585.000) van Parijs en Antwerpen

Dubbelploeg Xavier Malisse & Olivier Rochus
Xavier Malisse en Olivier Rochus wonnen op Roland Garros als eerste Belgische duo ooit een dubbelfinale van een Grand Slam. Na een spannende finale versloegen ze het Franse duo Llodra en Santoro en kwalificeerden ze zich op die manier voor de Olympische Spelen in Athene en de ATP Masters.

Flipkens, Kirsten
Op 13 september dook Kirsten Flipkens voor het eerst de top-150 van de WTA-ranking binnen. Deze klim was het resultaat van een aantal sterke prestaties waaronder onder andere de winst tegen 2 meisjes uit de top-50 en winst in het $50.000 tornooi van Innsbrück. Ook in de Fed Cup bewees Kirsten volwaardig mee te kunnen met de top-50.

Malisse, Xavier
Xavier Malisse presteerde sterk in 2 Grand Slam-tornooien, met een 1/8ste finale zowel op Wimbledon als op Roland Garros, na winst tegen o.a. Albert Costa (26ste reekshoofd). Bovendien haalde hij twee keer de finale in een ATP-tornooi, in Lyon en in St. Poelten.

Masson, Jeroen
Jeroen Masson maakte dit jaar een opmerkelijke sprong van meer dan 400 plaatsen op de ATP-ranking (van ATP730 naar ATP287) dankzij winst in het $15.000 Future toernooi van St. Katelijne-Waver en in de $10.000 Futures tornooien van Albufeira, Lagos en het Duitse Riemeling.

Vanhoudt, Tom
Tom Vanhoudt blijft het goed doen in het dubbelspel. In de loop van het voorbije jaar heeft hij opnieuw drie Challenger tornooien gewonnen, zijnde San Marino, Bermuda en Saint-Brieuc. Mede dankzij deze prestaties bekleedt hij momenteel de 75ste plaats op de ATP-ranking.

A man may fight for many things. His country, his friends, his principles, the glistening ear on the cheek of a golden child. But personally, I'd mud-wrestle my own mother for a ton of cash, an amusing clock and a sack of French porn.

I don't speak Dutch but I had someone translate this for me. But I'm a bit confused are these the official nominations for VTV player of the year? How can rochus/xavier win it when they aren't a player but a team and Rochus isn't a VTV player? Also the same for the FedCup team, they aren't a player but a team.

To me even though Kim only completed three events she is by far the VTV player of the year she is the highest ranked and the only one who a WTA or ATP title in singles and made the AO final and it is just my opinion but I think singles results should be put above doubles results. Also she is the only VTV female in the top 100.

Also is there a not a male VTV player of the year and a female VTV player of the year award but just the one award?

Also why is Vliegen not nominated? I think he had a better year than Els, Kirsten or Masson, he did beat Nalbandian.

Normally they do and the last couple it always went to Kim but maybe this year they feel that eventhough she still had the best results,hey should give somebody else the chance to win since she was injured for most of the year

With prestation of th year they mean something unique that was achieved I think..Well it doesn't have to be unique but you get what mean.Like for example Ollie and Xav winning the doubles at RG was amazing since never had a male Belgian ever done that before and the tenis was looking down at that time for the Belgians.Justine went crashing out in the 2nd round and Kim was injured.Anyway,I think Xavier and Olivier should win it,they really made the impossible possible

Allez.

Well I still think Kim should get it as she had the best results, why punish her for being injured? btw I'm not saying you think they should punish Kim

Who is nominated for player of the year?

They wont elect a 'player of the year'. The VTV decided to elect 'the performance of the year' instead of 'the player of the year'. By doing this both individual as group, male as female and tournament as year performances could be compared with each other.

Okay thanks, I also think it would also be because Kim had the best results by far and only completed three tournaments so to have her win it wouldn't really reflect to well on the others or the depth of Flemish tennis.
