A few players tempted me here - Dan for sure, Fran, yes, also Isabelle Lacy and Naiktha and Maia.

But Hannah K got my vote - she did it in several weeks, really performed week in and out for the month and at various levels. Definitely my player of the month

If you vote and also comment on your vote, remember it encourages others to view the thread and maybe also vote - so it improves the authenticity of the results and generally raises this whole Pom process!

So please do - and remember if you dont, all you see is lots of comments and stuff from me over the next two days! Haha

Between two for me

Great month by Hannah but such is now the levels and expectations she has set in the end it would have taken her also winning the U18 nationals to then probably have got my vote.

In the end Fran's super return has made her my PoM.

It has to be Fran for me. Reaching a WTA SF after such a long time out injured was quite remarkable. Incidentally I'm surprised Marnie didn't get a nomination, although I realise that's partly my fault for not thinking of it earlier.

Another good list and well done to all. But for me it's Fran. Very impressed with how her comeback is going. An inspiration.
