Re: WTA Awards 2019.

Andreescu can win both New Comer and POTY if she grabs Beijing or Shenzhen over Barty. MIP has to go to Kenin or Barty if she fails to finish this season #1.

Can't even think of anyone who has a great comeback this year and have no idea about the other categories.

Yes, newcomer should most definitely go to Andreescu but its politics so the newcomer award will go to Gauff and POTY will go to Andreescu.

Re: WTA Awards 2019.

Biggest slump of the year definitely goes to Angie.

Garbine comes second, but Kerber gets it for this season because Garbi was already slumping before 2019.

Player of the year is Andreescu.

Most improved is Barty.

Favourite match? I honestly can't remember any matches from this year.

Dokic&Kerber&Serena

Stosur - Venus - Hingis - Diyas - Jankovic - Niculescu - Barty - Sabalenka
Gavrilova - Wozniacki - Kvitova - Zvonareva - Osaka - CSN - Sevastova
Aga - Cibulkova - Lisicki - Bencic - Cornet - Halep - Mladenovic - Davenport - Ostapenko
Some level of love/fascination for Ivanovic, Giorgi, Azarenka, Sharapova, Makarova, Kuznetsova

The awards are usually given a day before WTA finals begin.

Re: WTA Awards 2019.

POTY:
Nominee will be Barty, Osaka, Halep, Andreescu and Karo Pliskova
Barty v Andreescu

Most Improved Player:
So many possible nominee
Barty, Andreescu, Kenin, Riske, Anisimova, Muchova, Kudermetova, ...?

Newcomer of the year:
Andreescu, Rybakina, Swiatek, Gauff, other nominee?

Biggest slump of the year:
Kerber, Kasatkina, Ostapenko, Gabrilova
I'd go Kasatkina

Re: WTA Awards 2019.

Player of the Year - at the moment I'd say Andreescu, but Barty has a strong case and there's still time to swing it one way or the other (or even to Osaka)

Newcomer of the Year - Andreescu if she doesn't get POTY, but if not Rybakina, Swiatek, Gauff and McNally (if the latter two finish top 100) have strong cases. I don't think it would be politics to give it to Gauff, even without the hype she'll have climbed nearly 800 places in the rankings this year at a younger age than we've seen in a very long time, her results merit it

Most Improved - Kenin, Martic and Riske encapsulate what this category should be about for me. Obviously Andreescu and Barty improved a lot but it shouldn't be a consolation prize for POTY candidates. Anisimova, Vondrousova and Yastremska also made huge leaps but it felt like part of a natural development for teenage future stars. Kenin, Martic and Riske are not necessarily people would have predicted to have risen the way they have and they've done it by visibly working on and changing their games, not just maturing. Like... if this makes sense, they're BETTER players at the end of 2019, not just older and a bit more experienced.

Comeback - Tig seems like the obvious choice here, and she did it the hard way as well with those months playing 15Ks in Cancun.

Best match was obviously Sevastova/Mertens at RG, ironically given that Sevastova's had a terrible year otherwise.

Slump of the year - Kasatkina. As someone pointed out in another thread not only has it shown no sign of ending but it's completely inexplicable compared to others who have had bad years. No injury, no personal drama, no reason at all.

Choke - If the narrative hadn't been about Gauff at Wimbledon, Hercog would have been an open and shut case because that was one big-time gag. Keys blowing MPs against Vekic deserves a mention, as does that ridiculous turning point that led to Teichmann losing to Potapova at Wimbledon.
