I don't know if anyone's posted the nominees for the ESPY tennis awards. They came out yesterday. Here's the link to the website where you can vote for who you want to win:

The nominees are:

Best Female Tennis Player

Jennifer Capriati
Credentials: Finished season ranked third in world rankings.

Past ESPY's: 2002 Best Comeback Athlete.

Kim Clijsters
Credentials: Won year-end WTA Championship tournament, beating Venus and Serena Williams.

Past ESPY's: none

Serena Williams
Credentials: Won 2002 French Open, U.S. Open and Wimbledon singles titles, plus 2003 Australian Open.

Past ESPY's: none

Venus Williams

Past ESPY's: 2001 and '02 Best Women's Tennis Player.

Andre Agassi
Credentials: Won 2003 Australian Open.

Past ESPY's: 2000 Best Men's Tennis Player.

Juan Carlos Ferrero

Past ESPY's: none

Lleyton Hewitt
Credentials: Won 2002 Wimbledon and finished #1 in world rankings for second straight year.

Past ESPY's: 2002 Best Men's Tennis Player.

Pete Sampras
Credentials: Won 2002 U. S. Open.

Past ESPY's: 1994, '95, '96, '97, '98, '99, and 2001 Best Men's Tennis Player.

Predictions by Dan Sanoff:

CATEGORY: BEST FEMALE TENNIS PLAYER
Early Favorite: Serena Williams. French fans don't know anything.
Sleeper: Kim Clijsters. Outlasted Serena, Venus and Jenny at French Open.
Buzz on the Rest: Jennifer Capriati (Still popular, but not having a Williams-type year); Venus Williams (Takes backseat to Serena)

CATEGORY: BEST MALE TENNIS PLAYER
Early Favorite: Pete Sampras. He's got the retirement-sentimental thing going.
Sleeper: Andre Agassi. If not Pete, then his arch-rival.
Buzz on the Rest: Juan Carlos Ferrero (French Open pub great, but can he compete in votes, not on clay?); Lleyton Hewitt (Bad boy's rep won't help him here)

Well, I must say they're really going out on a limb with that choice of players, aren't they? But tennistically, Serena and Agassi should rightfully scoop up the awards.

Tennistically, eh? Been reading some Ferrero interviews there, Hendouble? ;)

Of course Serena should win, and the mens should really only between Hewitt and Andre, with the old guy just edging Hewitt out.
