Serena Williams Named AP Female Athlete of the Year (for 3rd time)

Serena Williams was named the Associated Press Female Athlete of the Year for her amazing 2013 season where she won her 16th and 17th major titles (2013 French Open, 2013 U.S. Open), 9 other WTA tour titles and lost only four times (compared to 78 wins).

It was the 3rd time that Serena won the AP award, following excellent seasons in 2009 and 2002 (both of which were years she also ended the season ranked #1.

According to the WTA, Serena also set two important all-time records in 2013: becoming the oldest #1 ranked player and the single-season prize money total of $12,385,572.

The only question now is will Serena be able to repeat her success in 2014? I would not be surprised if she wins another 2 majors in 2014, and possibly more.

when Serena's game is on, as it was in 2013, no one comes close to her in sports, and that means any sport.
Well deserved Serena.
Health, or lack thereof, would probably be the only reason why she would not repeat in 2014.
