MIAMI, FL – World No. 1 Serena Williams was named the WTA Tour 2002 Player of the Year on Monday.

Williams won the Player of the Year award after a dazzling 2002 season in which she won a Tour-high eight titles, including three straight Grand Slam crowns (French Open, Wimbledon and the US Open), and rose to No. 1 in the world rankings. She went 56-5 on the year and was a remarkable 17-2 against Top-10 opponents.
