The world number one failed to win anything when the player awards were handed out, but the WTA has now announced that Caroline Wozniacki has been named the winner of the Diamond ACES Award for the 2011 season. The ACES Award is given 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.

“Not only is Caroline one of the best female athletes on the planet, she is extremely conscious of the power she has to grow women’s tennis around the world. She always makes herself available to our fans, sponsors and the media and it is because of players like Caroline that women’s tennis’ global fan base is constantly growing,” said Stacey Allaster, Chairman and CEO of the WTA.

Among Wozniacki’s numerous contributions to promoting women’s tennis this season include hosting a Kids Clinic at the Toray Pan Pacific Open where she gave lessons to close to a hundred Japanese children. She also helped raise awareness for breast cancer at the New Haven Open at Yale and gave a heartwarming speech to fans in Tokyo on the behalf of the WTA players offering the nation support after a devastating earthquake
