Best female athlete in the world

We've reached the championship matchup: Serena Williams vs. Mia Hamm.

And why not? These two made women's sports matter, and not just because they make skirts and shorts look so good.

So who will it be? Who is the best female athlete in the world?

Both can cover serious ground, whatever the direction or angle. Both can hit the snot out of a ball, whether it's with a racket or a foot or a head. And both will remind you that women are pretty tough, too.

Together, with your votes, we're going to determine once and for all (or at least until we decide to do it again next year) who the best female athlete in the world is. The best of all. Period.


So, as a friendly reminder, think about what goes into athleticism. What skills, and how many skills? What makes an elite athlete in one sport any more qualified to win than an elite athlete in another sport?


Start voting and let your voice be heard.

And, no Anna. Maybe next year. Maybe not.

I think that Justine and Kim should have been in the final.

"People think Iím a bitch when they first meet me because ĎOh Iím pretty, oh I have this beautiful bodyí and they are right. Donít waste your breath with me if you donít have a Bentley or a fur on hand ready to give me."
