Serena wins WTA Player of the Year Award

Miami, FL (Sports Network) - Serena Williams has been voted the 2008 WTA Tour Player of the Year. This is the second time Williams has been chosen by her peers as winner. She also captured the award in 2002 and last year reclaimed the throne as the No. 1 ranked player in the world. "Winning the Player of the Year award for the second time in my career is a great personal achievement," she said. "Last year was a very special year on the Tour for me, winning an Olympic Gold medal with Venus, the U.S. Open title and becoming the World No. 1 player again. I feel great about my game and hope to win many more Player of the Year titles in the years to come." Serena has won every major title during her career. Last year she won the U.S. Open crown, reached the title match at Wimbledon, won the Wimbledon Doubles crown (w/ Venus) and won three other championships.
