Re: 2013 XWTA/ Tennisforum Awards! Come in & vote!

Player of the year: Serena

Surprise of the year: Bartoli winning Wimbledon

Disappointment of the year: Lisicki failing to win Wimbledon?

Newcomer of the year: Bouchard

Comeback player of the year: Kleybanova, I guess

Grand slam match of the year: Radwanska-Lisicki, Wimbledon SF

Most dramatic match of the year: Li-Azarenka, AO final

Best Non-Grand Slam match of the year: Serena-Kvitova in Doha

Most overrated match of the year: Most Serena-Azarenka matches, in terms of quality that is. They tend to deliver on the drama.

Tournament of the year: Australian Open

Performance of the year: Serena d. Errani, French Open SF

Houdini/comeback of the year: Honestly can't recall. Serena-Kuznetsova, maybe?

Outcome of a match you would like to change: French Open final

Most improved player of the year: Simona Halep

Worst choke of the year: Does the Wimbledon final count, considering Lisicki was heavily favoured?

Player you discovered in 2013: Not sure, really. Can't remember who I didn't know

Retired player you will miss the most: Bartoli - absence makes the heart grow fonder

Player to look out for in 2014: Halep is the easy option

Your wishes for 2014: Sharapova remains injury free, re-cements place in top 3, wins a slam, gets a win over Serena (you didn't say they have to be realistic...). Robson cracks the top 20, wins her maiden title and reaches a slam QF.

Lisicki gets knocked out first round of Wimbledon because it will be hilarious. Azarenka sacks her coach and RedFoo starts coaching her. She also buys out her contract with Nike, and starts wearing Party Rock clothes on court. The AELTC ban RedFoo's afro.

Re: 2013 XWTA/ Tennisforum Awards! Come in & vote!

My picks:

Player of the year: Serena No explanation needed,

Surprise of the year: Bartoli winning Wimbledon How many people saw that coming?

Disappointment of the year: Sharapova's 2nd half of the year. She started off so strong, she looked like she would win another Slam and was only losing to Serena, but after FO, it all went dramatically downhill. Hope she is ok for next year.

Newcomer of the year: Eugenie Bouchard. Hopefully she will break the Top 20 next year.

Comeback player of the year: Flavia Pennetta. I am not a big fan, but she reached the SF of the US Open (her best Slam result ever) after a long layoff and beat some quality players along the way.

Grand slam match of the year: US Open final. The last Slam final of the year So much was at stake for both in this match and they both fought so hard and played yet another fantastic match (although I was going crazy live, I barely survived it). The atmosphere, the crowd, transition from day to night, the intensity, amazing drama, peak WTA.

Most dramatic match of the year: Lisicki-Radwanska Wimbledon Even though I was mad at Lisicki for beating Serena (and rooted against her in the final), I knew all hell would break loose if Radwanska won and thankfully Lisicki saved tennis

Best Non-Grand Slam match of the year: Serena-Kvitova in Doha Stunning play from Petra, best she's played in the last couple of seasons and great comeback by Serena. Very special match as well as she finished it off with an ace and on her knees in tears after coming back to No.1 after 3 years.

Most overrated match of the year: Serena-Maria Miami Maria fans were going wild and people in general refer to it as this great comeback by Serena. In reality, it was a routine win after the first set.

Tournament of the year: French Open (I waited so many years to say that )

Performance of the year: Serena vs Errani at the French Open. 6-0 6-1, 46 minutes, 40 winners, 8 UE, 8 aces in a Slam Semifinal vs a top 5 opponent. Enough said.

Houdini/comeback of the year: Not many come to mind right now, so I will pick Serena-Cibulkova in Miami. Cibulkova was up 6-2 4-1, 40-15 and Serena turned it around and won in 3.

Outcome of a match you would like to change: Serena-Lisicki at Wimbledon She was so close, but Sabine was just in God mode and Serena choked to death in that match. Had she won, she would have inevitably won the tournament.

Most improved player of the year: Halep. A real breath of fresh air

Worst choke of the year: Li at the Aussie Open I knew she would choke, but the match itself was incredibly painful to watch.

Player you discovered in 2013: Eugenie Bouchard and Jamie Hampton.

Retired player you will miss the most: Marion Bartoli

Player to look out for in 2014: Halep. I'm not jumping on the bandwagon, but she has a lt of potential, let's hope she can realize it.

Your wishes for 2014: Serena to stay healthy and injury free and the results will come

Re: 2013 XWTA/ Tennisforum Awards! Come in & vote!

I went on first instinct on most of these, but if I think of a match (or see someone else post it) that I agree with more I'll edit it

Player of the year: Serena Williams

Surprise of the year: The entire Wimbledon fortnight From Rafa, Roger, Sharapova out within two days and then Serena out a days later. Just generally SEED EXODUS

Disappointment of the year: NADIA PETROVA
Honorable mention: Julia Goerges

Newcomer of the year: Eugenie Bouchard

Comeback player of the year: Alisa Kleybanova

Grand slam match of the year: RG QF: Serena d. Kuznetsova - Aside from her runs here and in Melbourne, Sveta had pretty much a poor season. Even her results in the warmups for Roland Garros were poor on her part... But I had a feeling though if she could somehow scrape through her first matches, she could trouble Serena if she played well. I think out of the players left on tour, she is one of the only players who could match Serena (great athlete, could play defense, create opportunities for herself as well). And Serena needed a match like this. After winning it, she played a superb match against Errani and put in a relaxed performance to beat Sharapova and FINALLY win her 2nd RG title
Honorable mentions: Lisicki d. Serena and Radwanska at Wimbledon

Most dramatic match of the year: Istanbul SF: Serena d. Jankovic; Crybabyrena v. Dramalena. Just a mess really

Best Non-Grand Slam match of the year: Hantuchova d. Schiavone Birmingham QF

Most overrated match of the year: -

Tournament of the year: Wimbledon - Shocking, but exciting at the same time I thought it was cool that someone not named Serena, Vika, or Maria was going to win a GS

Performance of the year: Wimbledon R4: Lisicki d. Serena
Honorable mentions: Wimbledon SF: Lisicki d. Radwanska; RG SF: Serena d. Errani

Houdini/comeback of the year: -

Outcome of a match you would like to change: Wimbledon QF: Bartoli d. Stephens

Most improved player of the year: Simona Halep.

Worst choke of the year: I suppose Lisicki losing the Wimbledon final as tamely as she did after doing all of the hard work could constitute as a choke? She never got herself in a position to win though.

There are definitely worse chokes, but the most recent one I watched that came to mind was Sofia SF: Halep d. Ivanovic. Girl bye.

Player you discovered in 2013: Jamie Hampton
Honorable mention: Anna-Karolina Schmiedlova

Retired player you will miss the most: Marion Bartoli (of players who retired this year)
Honorable mention: Agnes Szavay

Player to look out for in 2014: Simona Halep (whether she can build on her form...or flop )

Your wishes for 2014: All of my favorites most importantly to remain healthy

Re: 2013 XWTA/ Tennisforum Awards! Come in & vote!

Player of the year:
Serena Williams. I'm not really much of a fan, but with 10 titles and the biggest 12-month points gain of any player it's hard to make a case for anyone having a superior claim.

Surprise of the year:
Michelle Larcher de Brito beating Maria Sharapova at Wimbledon. If the answer to this is meant to be a specific player then Simona Halep.

Disappointment of the year:
Julia Goerges

Newcomer of the year:
Eugenie Bouchard

Comeback player of the year:
Jelena Jankovic. Second-highest points gain of the year.

Grand slam match of the year:
Serena Williams v Sabine Lisicki, Wimbledon

Most dramatic match of the year:
Serena Williams v Sabine Lisicki, Wimbledon

Best Non-Grand Slam match of the year:
Annika Beck v Katarzyna Piter, Luxembourg

Tournament of the year:
Wimbledon. One of those crazy tournaments where almost every day brought with it some kind of shock result.

Performance of the year:
Daniela Hantuchova winning Birmingham in 159 games. It may not have been pretty, but it was the hardest-won WTA title of the year.

Outcome of a match you would like to change:

Most improved player of the year:
In terms purely of ranking points gained it was Serena, but in relative terms it has to be Simona Halep.

Player you discovered in 2013:
Petra Uberalova, for purely base reasons.

Player to look out for in 2014:
Anna Schmiedlova

Your wishes for 2014:
For Serena to weaken. I admire the talent, but she's so good I find most of her matches a bit boring!
For some British teens to emerge at ITF level.
For the young Japanese players to progress at ITF and WTA level.
For Julia Goerges to get her act together.
For at least one slam to go to a player who hasn't won one before.
For Vera Zvonareva to win a title.

Re: 2013 XWTA/ Tennisforum Awards! Come in & vote!

Player of the year:Serena Williams. 78-4.At age 32. Mindboggling.

Surprise of the year: Simona Halep. One moment she's playing Daniela in the Rome qualifiers,next she's world number 11 with 6 titles in the bag.

Disappointment of the year: Sabine Lisicki freezing in the Wimbledon final.

Newcomer of the year: Eugenie Bouchard.

Comeback player: Jelena Jankovic. Honestly thought she was done. Now she's top 10 again.

Grand Slam match of the year: Lisicki-Radwanska Wimbledon SF. Incredible drama.

Most dramatic match of the year: Azarenka-Li AO F.Really worried for Na after she hit her head.

Best non-Slam match of the year: Kvitova-Venus Tokyo SF. A pleasure to watch these two ladies playing well again.

Most overrated match of the year: Serena-Kuznetsova FO QF. With Sveta barely able to serve,the outcome of the match never seemed in doubt to me.

Tournament of the year: Tokyo. A refreshingly fast court,and the players produced the tennis to match.Plus it was the first time I really got to watch Genie.

Performance of the year: Serena-Errani FO SF. Like watching a lion play with a mouse.

Houdini/comeback performance of the year: Errani/Vinci defeat the Williams sisters at the Australian Open. Watched it live,and still don't have a clue how the Chichis pulled this one off.

Outcome of a match you would like to change: Makarova def Daniela Fed Cup. Katya thoroughly deserved her victory,but it was hard to see Daniela in tears on the bench afterwards. The fact that the Russian players subsequently gave Galina level of fucks about the final just rubbed salt in the wound.

Most Improved player of the year: Simona Halep.

Worst choke of the year:Alexandra Panova against Vinci in the Fed Cup final.

Player you discovered in 2013:Eugenie Bouchard

Retired player you will miss the most: Was never a fan,but Marion and her quirks added something intangible to the tour that will surely be missed.

Player to look out for in 2014: Petra Kvitova. Finally seems to have pulled out of the slump.

Your wishes for 2014: Daniela to win a clay title,Ana just to win any title,and Petra to win a Slam.
