Daniela Hantuchova phones in from Monte Carlo after hearing the awards announced a few minutes ago:

"*screams* I AM outraged!!! Okay, let me get this straight. The Williams sisters have defeated Lindsay and myself once or whatever and they won doubles team of the year? We defeated them in I believe 3 straight finals and that wasn't taken into account, including the Australian Open finals? This is a travesty, I DEMAND a recount! I, I mean Lindsay and I, deserve the doubles award for being the most dominant team on the WGTA and even without her, I with my new partner, Ashley still defeated the No. 1 ranked doubles team in Linz, pretty handily. What-e-ver! *rolleyes* I will NOT come get my award, have it sent to me! *throws phone across the room*"

tour director: "I understand Miss Hantuchova's position. However the Williams sisters did win 2 majors, more then anyone else. And some voters didn't read the nominations correctly. Some voted for Hantuchova/Harkleroad....not Hantuchova/Davenport"

Monica Seles gives her speech at the WGTA Gala Dinner after winning the Player's Choice Award:

"I am extremely flattered and I feel very honored to have won this award. I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the players for being so supportive of me and for choosing me. This means a lot to me and I will definitely cherish this award."

"I would also like to congratulate Daniela Hantuchova, Venus and Serena Williams as well as Elena Dementieva for winning their respective awards. They were all deserving winners. I have to add, that I think it's unfair that Anna didn't win an award because she is one of the Tour's premier players in singles as well as in doubles and mixed doubles. She and Andre are the mixed doubles team of the year, in my opinion."

"I love the WGTA and all the players and the Tour director. Once again, let me say, Thank You!"

"Thanks to everyone who voted for me and Serena. We will concentrate even more on Doubles next year and try to win the Grand Slam. But this year we had a great year, thanks again to everyone and I'll see you next year!"

"Lindsay and I were robbed of our award. Those who voted carelessly and blindedly cost us, anyway, like anyone cares, but here are the stats. As everyone can see, the Williams sisters have never beaten us, including losing three straight finals at Melbourne, Berlin then Rome. I don't have the award but I know we, Lindsay and I, are the best when we're both playing. The results show that."
