2000: Venus Williams
2001: Jennifer Capriati
2002: Serena Williams
2003: Justine Henin
2004: Maria Sharapova
2005: Kim Clijsters

Now, I don't remember off the top of my head, but I thought Ana Myskina won something in '04, because of the Fed Cup results.

She was ITF World Champion. It was because of her RG and very consistent/stellar results....Lindsay should have gotten it

Wow... no one has won it twice since 2000! :eek:

Would this year be different, or will it continue the run?

Because she was not able to play entire of the season.

Venus should have gotten it in 2001. She defeated capriati 3 times in a row for pete's sake!!! She was robbed!!!!!

Also
Capriati was 56-14
played 17 tourney's and won 3


Venus was 46-5
played in 12 tourney's and won 6

Venus Vs. Capriati
3-0
How was Capritati better:scratch: :scratch:

Cappy's #1 ranking meant nothing because Venus had a much better record and year and cappy couldn't defeat Venus that year.

So, Jen got it in 01' over
Venus because she was year end #1?

I know Venus got injured after the Open
and was out for the rest of the season and
ended the year at #3.

Thats the real question, how on earth did Jen win it over Venus in 2001? Venus had equal slams, more titles, winning the H2H, wtf? :help:

I think Jennifer didn't end #1 in 01, she clinched the POY award because of her sensational comeback story...

Jen got it in 01 because she was more of the STORY of the year. Not the actual player. IF you look at the stats, Venus should have got it.

Capriati got it mainly because of her performances at Grand Slams, and because she ended higher in the rankings than Venus.

Let's not forget Jen was 56-14 Venus was 46-5
Venus was better than Capriati that year I don't care how great capriati's comeback was.

Despite ranking Venus had a way better year and dominated Capriati. Venus should have still gotten it.

I think Sharapova deserved it more than Myskina in 2004. She jumped 20+ places in the rankings that year and won both Wimbledon and YEC.

Orion

Capriati did better overall at the slams, and that's typically what they look at.

This year is one of the trickiest one I can remember. It's really down to how the votes go.

i guess justine finished as number one ranked more than anyone else in that period

Seles, Hingis
Nov 17th, 2006, 09:56 AM
This year has to definiely be between Henin and mauresmo. One made all the Slam finals, winning one, the other won two slams, and made a quater and semi of the others.

Justine personally 2 me should get POY plus ITF World Champion for 2006. i mean even if she won 1 slam (RG) she still reached all the other 3 slam finals, won the YEC, played 4 belgium in the fed cup final, had the best W/L ratio, won a tour 6 leading titles, reached the final in 10 events out of 13 & finished No.1 in the world. so that 2 me is impressive & there4 justine gets my vote 4 player of the year.

2004 Maria won both Wimbledon and YEC. She had the better season.

Nastya won RG, Fed Cup, a tier1, a tier2, finished the year ranked ahead of Maria, was more consistent, led the head to head 3-1 (4-0 if this fucking Yuri didn't exist:rolleyes: )

Basically Wimbledon followed by the Masters win clinched that one.

well considering if it is indeed decided on a "story" rather than actual results i.e - (Cappy's comeback in 2001), surely Mauresmo will be named Player of the Year 2006 considering her story of finally being capable of winning grand slam titles :shrug:

Capriati did better overall at the slams, and that's typically what they look at.

This year is one of the trickiest one I can remember. It's really down to how the votes go.
Exactly, having the count even on GS wins at 2 each they looked the overall GS record and Venus has a desultory 1R exit a Roland Garros.
Capriati finished the year ranked ahead and was able to show up for the Masters which Venus did not. So that was probably their criteria.

Nov 17th, 2006, 03:17 PM
I would put Venus 2001 above Capriati 2001

Nov 17th, 2006, 03:22 PM
I agree that Henin should win it this year... She was the best player overall. Mauresmo has two slams, but was very up and down during the other parts of the season...

Nov 17th, 2006, 03:28 PM
Justine's 2004 season is often overlooked. Aside from the Australian and Olympic title, whenever she showed up, she basically won. You could make an arguement that she had a Serena-esque season that year.

YEC beats a Tier 1 or Tier 2

And Myskina didn't beat the quality of opposition Maria did.

And Myskina didn't beat the quality of opposition Maria did.

:rolleyes: :rolleyes:
Nastya beated Kuzzie and Venus to reach the RG semis (Maria faced Weingartner and Suarez in the same rounds and lost to Paola), Maria won vs Frazier and Sugiyama to reach the Wimby's semis. You are right, "Myskina didn't beat the quality of opposition Maria did". :rolleyes:
Nastya won against Likhovtseva, Zvonareva, Lindsay (really an easy opponent in that period :rolleyes: ) and Lena D. in Moscow. In the same period Maria won Seoul and Tokyo beating players like Gagliardi, Kremer, Tanasugarn, Fedossova, etc.
Then, Nastya's round robin at the YEC was tougher than Maria's one IMO.

2002 - Venus

2004 - Henin and Maria
2005 - Clijsters
2006 - Mauresmo or Henin or Maria

VeeReeDavJCap81
Nov 18th, 2006, 06:33 AM
I think Venus should've been the POY in '01, considering Vee and Jen were in the running for it and Venus had a 3-0 h2h against her that season. Plus look at the winning percentages.

Henin maybe better known for her cold persona and her questionable sportsmanship but nobody can ever deny her abilility to step up and win when she wants.. shes is the best player by far on the tour atm.. and this is comming from somebody who dosnt even like her...

Nov 18th, 2006, 02:12 PM
Myskina really should have gotten POY in 04. Not being biased but she performed equally as well in the slams to Maria, was the first Russian woman to win a slam, in all respects had a tough draw at the French (Molik 1st round!! Kuzy, Venus and Capriati), she owned Sharapova that year, won bigger events, more money, and won more matches. Regardless of age, Myskina was a better player. Sharapova didn't play in the Fed cup either... which is a disgrace to tennis!!! The difference also, is that Myskina played well through the WHOLE season, not just in the second half.

Having Maria winning it almost affirms that Yuris behaviour at the YEC was acceptable. Bloody disgrace. I'm sorry, but I hate the bitch! Death by association.

Playing in only 12 events is not good for the WTA as it doesn't promote thier products as regularly as they would like. The tour disdains the WIlliams sisters playing so little because they know how good they are, but when it comes to the crunch the players get the ultimate decision as to where they want to play.

I think this year will break the streak as Justin will take home the player of the year.

If the honour was really worth it shouldnt matter how many tournie someone plays
