Passing shots

You probably already know who 2011's Ms Backspin is (how could you not?). Here is part 2 of the Backspin Awards, which include players, performances, matches, and much more.

World number 1 Caroline Wozniacki is the 2011 recipient of the WTA's Diamond Aces Award. The award is given each year to "the player who consistently goes above and beyond in promoting the sport of women's tennis to fans, media and local communities by performing off-court promotional and charitable activities."

According to one writer, Wozniacki and her friend, golfer Rory McIlroy, can will increase their endorsement incomes by 50% if they remain together.

Sam Stosur will soon have some new sponsors (via Beyond the Baseline).

Melanie Oudin, who recently went through a trial coaching period with Tom Gullickson, will remain with Gullickson--at least through the start of the 2012 season. In other words, it's still a trial.

That's a good reason as any to stay together: to increase your endorsement. Hope they don't take that advice to seriously!
