I don't think she played enough to receive the first IMO - but she has a very good chance of winning the second.

Venus will probably win the tennis one. I think Vince and Flash are tied for the other one. Booo...

that was all heart from her.

she shouldn't win Best Female Tennis Athlete though.
doesn't deserve it. didn't play or win enough.
probably will go to Amelie.
I agree. Momo deserves it. Her performance last year, winning 4 titles including the end- of - year champs, was pretty impressive, along with ending year rank #3. Justine is a strong contender, though. Good luck to all the tennis players nominated.
