Tennis number-one player Serena Williams has put herself back in the talks of being one of the greatest tennis players ever as the Associated Press names her the top female athlete of 2009. Serena Williams won the award convincingly by receiving 66 first place votes out of 158 and no other female athlete received more than 18.
Serena Williams won the Associated Press top female award in 2002 which was seven years ago. That seven year gap is the longest by any female who won that award since LPGA golfer Patty Berg won in 1943 and 1955. Serena Williams beat out Zenyatta who is the first female horse to win this year's Breeder's Cup Classic.
