Sportswoman of the year!
Jennifer was named Laureus sportswoman of the year tonight in Monaco, a year after picking up the comeback title. Jennifer beat Venus Williams to the title, along with some other women who I can't remember.
I'll post a story about this when I can be bothered. What a day, a win in Rome for the first time in 9 years and now Sportswoman of the Year. Way to go Jen!
There's not much to be found apart from the official site which carries this:
French and Australian Open tennis champion Jennifer Capriati won the Laureus World Sportswoman of the Year title from compatriot Venus Williams, record-breaking pole-vaulter Stacy Dragila, multiple world champion Dutch swimmer Inge de Bruijn and Swedish golfer Annika Sorenstam
It's a shame that after all the discussion about Jennifer's fashion statements, we will have been denied the chance to see her in a lovely party frock, or something similar. Last year's ceremony was a week later and so Jennifer was there in Monaco to collect her award wearing the harem dress. Maybe she would have worn the blue dress anyway...
