Re: WTA Announces 2012 Player Award Nominees

TC is having "Serena Week"'next week. Wonder if they already know she has POY locked. Wonder if there will be a "Vika Week" to follow?

Re: WTA Announces 2012 Player Award Nominees

1) WTA's Player of the Year: Serena Williams....Gold medal tips it
2) Comeback Player of the Year: Yaroslava Shvedova...from quallies in the french
3) Most Improved Player of the Year: Sara Errani.....finalist french
4) Newcomer of the Year: Laura Robson...taking out top 10 player while reaching 4R (and still being classed as junior player)
5) Team of the Year (doubles): Sara Errani and Roberta Vinci or William sisters...not sure on this one but think Gold trumps everything

WTA favored the slam winners (or whoever had more slams) in past years picking POY. Usually ITF picks the year end #1 as POY.

This, really.
I'm totally unbiased of course. But Sara's breakthrough and rise in the rankings has been so much more surprising than Kerbers. And her improvement has been much larger. She won 40 places in singles AND 25 places in doubles.


For me:
1) WTA's Player of the Year: Serena Williams (should be a lock)
2) Comeback Player of the Year: Yaroslava Shvedova (but I think Venus will get it)
3) Most Improved Player of the Year: Sara Errani (see above)
4) Newcomer of the Year: Heather Watson (higher ranked than Robson, and unlike Stephens she won a title. Bertens doesn't stand a chance here, unfortunately)
5) Team of the Year (doubles): Errani/Vinci (2 Slam1, 1 final)

Well, Kerber backed up her USO SF appearance with a consistent 2012, ending the year in the top 5, and a slew of "firsts" (first titles (one is Premier), first Premier 5 level final, first quarterfinals and semifinals here and there in big tourneys, some upsets against the big girls, etc). That is certainly improvement.

Errani certainly has had her improvement as well though and she can also win the award easily, especially if her doubles run this year is counted too. It just depends on how the committee decides.

But in my personal opinion, Kerber has improved more than Errani, simply based on her relatively more consistent run throughout the year. I personally prefer 'backing-up the breakout' than the 'breakout' itself

Re: WTA Announces 2012 Player Award Nominees

1) Vika or Rena
2) Shvedova
3) Kerber
4) Watson (based on the fact she won a tour title) otherwise Robson
5) If they're nominated then Hlavackova/Hradecka
