I'm not a particular fan of Jennifer's but thought I'd post this anyway. Congrats Jen! And all the best for 2002...

Capriati lands new<br /> award<br /> <br /> Capriati won her first Grand Slam title in Australia<br /> Jennifer Capriati has been honoured for an<br /> incredible year by being named Reuters<br /> sportswoman of the year.

The American beat compatriots Venus Williams<br /> and Marion Jones, who finished equal second,<br /> with Croatian skier Janica Kostelic in fourth.

Forty sports editors and journalists from 31<br /> countries made three nominations each, with<br /> Capriati receiving 61 points to 27 for Williams<br /> and Jones.

Capriati made a<br /> stunning return to the<br /> top flight of tennis in<br /> 2001 after a<br /> much-publicised fall<br /> from grace.

She won the Australian<br /> and French Opens and<br /> looked on course for a<br /> Grand Slam, before<br /> losing in the semi-finals<br /> at Wimbledon.

But she recovered to claim the world number<br /> one ranking for the first time in October, and<br /> ended the year as the International Tennis<br /> Federation's world champion.

Venus Williams dominated the second half of<br /> the year, retaining her Wimbledon and US Open<br /> crowns.
