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

Skirts > accomplishments

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

I am not a fan of the direction a lot of Maria threads have taken over the last 12 months.
The undertone is very disappointing, aggressive and the comments are sometimes rude to a player just trying to earn a living, playing her hardest and having a good amount of success given her god given, natural talents.
You made the list: NEW President Bouchard, Cibulkova, Mladenovic, Wozniacki, Kerber, Cornet, Watson, Broady.

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.
