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

damn against Flash and the college highlight film?

awww damn!

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

Venus should win best championship performance.
that was all heart from her. :worship:

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.:worship:

I think Kimmie deserves Best Female Tennis Althlete...she basically won all the American tournament incl. IW, Miami, and US Open.

Amelie all the way, won australian, YEC, and a bunch of tier 1s last year.

But since it's an American award, it'll probably go to Venus.

No ifs and nor buts. Sorry, no doubt that Amelie is great, but strangely this award normally goes to people who won Wimbledon the previous year :tape: :lol:

I hope she get the "Best Championship Performance" one.
The three other women she's in competition with for the "Best Female Athlete" has done more lately. Should go to one of them. Hopefully numero uno Momo.

Kim and Henin are really her only competition. It seems like around the net people don't feel Mauresmo really won the slam because Henin backed out so it definitely won't be Mauresmo. I don't agree with this. I continue to tell others a win is a win and that Mauresmo was on her way to winning.

If logic has anything to do with the voting (and it seldom does), Venus should NOT win the "best female tennis player" for obvious reasons. Now for the second award, "Best championship performance", I will withold judgement till I see the other nominees, but the award should go to an athlete in an individual sport - sorry Vince - and not a team sport.

Good Luck Venus. Wimbledon 05 was definetly the most competitive and entertaining GS from last year.

The thing is that a lot of people don' really even know about the controversy. Sad but true. Her name is on the trophy, and that's all people who aren't tennis afficionados are going to see.

I want Amelie to win but i think Kim deserves it, she won about 9 titles last year including the US open, IW, Miami and Toronto, all tier 1
