Welcome to TF Player Popularity Contest 2009! This is a series of threads where you vote for the player you like the most. It is very similar to Pick-Your-Winner, but different in that voting is not in tennis score format and voting is done in a vBulletin poll. The draw consists of the top 128 players of this week's rankings in real draw format with the top 32 being seeded.

It is also different from Pick-Your-Winner in that it is going to be held in General Messages, in front of a largely different group of people.

VOTING RULES
There are eight options in each poll, for four matches. You must pick one player from one match. You may pick one player from each of the four matches in the poll, or just the one player, as long as you do not pick both players from the one match (if you do, both of your votes for that match will be voided).

The first player to reach 20 votes from each match will progress through to the next round.

When a winner has been decided from all four matches, the next thread and section will begin.

This thread's matches and options are highlighted in red in the draw below.

I thought Rodionova is Australian now?:scratch:

from wikipedia:

Anastasia moved to Australia in 2005 and has held an Australian Permanent Residency Visa (Distinguished Talent) since August 2007, but due to a requirement of the International Tennis Federation (ITF), Rodionova must play for Russia at all tournaments excluding grand slams until she is granted Australian Citizenship.

On 31 August 2009, Minister for Immigration and Citizenship (Australia), Senator Chris Evans announced proposed amendments to the Citizenship Act 2007 that will allow Rodionova to qualify for Australian Citizenship[2]. The present law requires that all citizenship applicants must not leave Australia for more than 3 months per year for four years, which is not possible for professional tennis players.
