WTAhotties Awards 2009 - Breakthrough player of the year: Sabine Lisicki

20 year old German Sabine Lisicki has broken this season into the Top-25 players in the world. And she has done it not in minor events, but with an schedule almost completely focused on the big tournaments. Highlights of her season were her title in $1M Premier event in Charleston and her quarter-finalist place in Wimbledon, with impressive victories over WTA #3 Svetlana Kuznetsova, WTA #4 Caroline Wozniacki (twice) and WTA #6 Venus Williams. She has shown that on a good day she can be a threat for any player, and if she improves her consistency and regularity, she can reach much higher.
