• Matt Cronin of TennisReporters.net breaks down Maria Sharapova's and Caroline Wozniacki's years. He writes of Sharapova: "Without question, 2011 was a better year for her than either 2009 or 2010, her first two comeback years after her right shoulder surgery in October 2008. But that does not mean that it was a great year for Sharapova and I’m not even sure if by her Slam winning, former No.1 standards it was very good one."
