German Sportswoman of the year: Petko in 2nd and Sabine in 4th Place

Big Surprise yesterday in Baden Baden. Andrea Petkovic was voted Number 2 for the Sportswoman of the year and Sabine Lisicki finished in a good 4th place.
Tennis is back on top!

1400 sportjournalists voted for the sportsman, woman and team of the year...


Punkteliste Sportlerin des Jahres 2011

1. Magdalena Neuner (Biathlon) 4260
2. Andrea Petkovic (Tennis) 2002
3. Maria Höfl-Riesch (Ski alpin) 1849
4. Sabine Lisicki (Tennis) 1222
5. Betty Heidler (Leichtathletik)1077

As Neuner and Riesch are World and Olympic-champions and Heidler as a World Champion as well, this is such an great honour

Riesch wins overall World Cup.
Heidler throws world record.
Petkovic wins Straßbourg.
Lisicki wins Birmingham.

- Caroline Wozniacki has never beaten a reigning world #1.
- Caroline Wozniacki has never beaten a top 5 player at a major.
- Caroline Wozniacki has not beaten a top 3 player en route to any of her 23 titles.
- Caroline Wozniacki has beaten two top 5 players en route to her 23 titles (#4 Zvonareva and #5 Schiavone)

-Her fans think she had very bad luck with her Grand Slam and Regular Tour draws.

It would be interesting in two years, as Neuner is retiring, maybe Petkovic will win it...however I also think that Riesch deserves to be Nr 2.

Sabine made Wimbly semi and won 2 titles. Sabine was 'WTA comeback player of the year' and won a couple of other awards too. She 'does it' just because she's brilliant

It's just like the time Wozniak was named Canadian sportswoman of the year in 2009 ahead of Lopes-Schliep.

Apparently the voters don't care.
