Williams named AP Female Athlete of the Year

Serena Williams has been named the Associated Press Female Athlete of the Year. 66 of 158 editors cast their votes for Williams, who also won the award in 2002.

Williams, who finished 2009 as number 1 in the world, won two majors this year, as well as the Sony Ericsson Championships. She and her sister, Venus, won three majors in doubles.

It was a good year for tennis: Kim Clijsters placed third in the voting.

William was also named the ITF female World Champion for 2009.

It was a good year... but it should be noted that a horse took second place between Serena and Clijsters. :D

So, maybe not?
