WTAhotties Awards 2009 - Player of the year: Serena Williams

There has been a big controversy this season concerning the rankings system as Dinara Safina was No.1 without having won any Grand Slam title, whereas Serena Williams, who was considered by almost everyone the best player, laid at No.2. But at the end of the season Williams has finally achieved both things, the No.1 in the rankings and being considered the best player of the year. Not only her titles at the Australian Open, Wimbledon and the Tour Championships, but her leadership, competitivity and her ability to play her best tennis in the big tournaments and decissive rounds, are her merits for this award.
