Sanex Hero of the Year is......
Sorry if this is old news:
Justine Henin-Hardenne Elected Player of the Year by Popular Internet Vote!
A record of more than 30,000 tennis fans from all over the world have elected the Sanex Hero of the Year on the Internet. The fans have chosen Justine Henin-Hardenne whose outstanding performance this year has thrilled tennis audiences around the globe. Justine succeeds Monica Seles who won the inaugural award in 2002 and came a close second this year. Justine Henin-Hardenne has received the award from Stephanie Morel, the 2003 most inspired reporter of the Sanex Heroes fan community accompanied by Georgina Clark, Vice President European Operations of the WTA Tour on-court after her last round robin match at the Bank of America WTA Tour Championships.
No disrespect to Justine. She's had a terrific year and I think she deserves to be No1 for all the hard work she has put in but I thought we were voting for an 'on-and-off-court' hero.
Man, proud man, drest in a little brief authority, most ignorant of what he’s most assured,
his glassy essence, like an angry ape, plays such fantastic tricks before high heaven,
as makes the angels weep.
