I dont get HOW the HECK they can stick Ochoa at #8. She had a tremendous season on the LPGA tour, better than Annika.

In the US, they would never give it to a tennis player.
I wonder if Justine will win an ESPY?

Congrats Justine.

As hard as they try they just cannot market Federer en-masse to the Americans. The US public like the sporting heroes (specially overseas ones) to get down and get dirty just occasionally when winning title after title. Roger just seems to always win everything soo damn easily.

I like how everyone forgets her meltdowns in the finals of three Grand Slams. Yep, you deserved it Justine.

(Of course I'm glad she did well this year, but her sportsmanship has always been questionable, since 2003 at least, and I dunno, I just don't see how someone who doesn't have a lot gets sportswoman of the year when many people outside of just me by far feel Mauresmo accomplished much more.)

Maybe I could have believed your crap that you actually think Mauresmo accomplished more if it weren't for the "...but her sportsmanship ..." bit :rolleyes:

What Justine did against Serena in the French semifinal and against Mauresmo in the Australian final should not be forgotten nor should it be appreciated in either situation. That is poor sportsmanship. And I dunno about you, but I'd rather have two Slams than one, but that could just be me.

Justine might have had more titles and was overall more consistent, but people care about the Slams. Amelie won the most this year and finally overcame her nerves and defeated Justine twice in them. If someone thinks Justine did better, of course that's fine and dandy, but I just don't understand how she's the sportswoman of the year; after she retired from the Australian final, everyone hated her, but it seems retiring from one of the most prestigious finals you could be in isn't so bad anymore.

Not to the Spanish press, apparently. I guess they must have applied Occam's Razor to her Australian withdrawl - in other words, they figured Justine was too ill to continue.

Congrats Justine.

I don't dislike Justine. She's a very good player. But that just left a sour taste in my mouth is all. I'm glad for her as well, just thought it was an odd choice.

Justine came along side Jelena Isinbajeva and Laure Manaudou in the poll among European press agencies too. So, I don't think this is too odd or a fluke - this seems to be how they see things for 2006. Look over here in this thread.

Oh, I agree with you :lol: , but the poster certainly has the right to express his opinion and, like I said, I have no problems with that...
