Tennis Queen Serena Williams once again proved to the world why she is the best in the sporting arena when she received the Associated Press' 2009 Female Athlete of the Year award. In a poll conducted within the group of 158 editors, Williams got a whopping 66 votes, way ahead of her closest rival, Zaynetta, the first female horse to win the Breeders' Cup Classic who garnered 18 votes. Comeback queen Kim Clijsters came on third position with 16 votes.
"People realize that I'm a great player, and one moment doesn't define a person's career," Williams said in reference to her infamous on-court incident at the U.S. Open earlier this year. "And I was right, for the most part: It wasn't right the way I reacted -- I never said it was -- but I was right about the call.''
WTA Chairperson Stacey Allaster was all praises for Serena - "We can attribute the strength and the growth of women's tennis a great deal to her. She is a superstar.''
Williams, who last won the award in 2002 for her phenomenal achievements at both Grand Slams and the WTA circuit, was ecstatic about her achievement - "I'm just happy and blessed to even be playing seven years later. All this is a bonus, really. In 2002, I just was really dominant, and I think in 2009, I just brought that back. I kind of became that player again.''
