Although its not official untill Monday, Seles was voted Sanex Hero Of The Year. She briefly trailed Hingis for a day or two, but Seles fans got together and gave Monica the crown. Congrats Monica! :)

Congratulations Monica. Although I voted for Martina I knew that the Monica would win. She is great and I am just glad that Martina, one of her best friends on the tour, got second.

Kick some butt in LA, MONICA!!! :bounce:

I think all the players participate in charities. martina was just in vienna donating her time and a very precious jewel-studded watch to a charity. :D

I really have a lot of respect for Monica, she's a very very very good player but honestly ... i don't think she diserve this trophy this year ... Her year wasn't that good if you compare it with for example Serena ...
But as Irma said ... wich fan group made the best propaganda ;)

Basically its a popularity contest.

The more fans who vote for a specific player wins. And Monica KILLED the competition. She won by a mile. So she obviously has the most fans.

And yeah she didnt really do anything this year, but i think its more of a testimate to her stabbing and what not

Monica does alot for the WTA tour, and her competitive spirit still rings through and through even after giving so much time on the court it is amazing!!!

damn, I was rooting for Cindy Watson!!! At least Cindy got nominated! She was the only player outside the top 100 I think. She did well to make the final round of this award!

Congrats to Seles!

Seles voted Sanex Hero of the Year. Popularity contest? You bet. Who else possesses the perspective to appreciate that it means far more than another title trophy?

Which is exactly why it's going to her.
