Serena Williams voted WTA Player Of The Year

Kandywandy - 19:22:00

FROM winning three of the four Grand Slams to holding No.1 from start to finish, it should come as no surprise that Serena Williams has been voted WTA Player Of The Year.
From winning three of the four Grand Slams to holding No.1 from start to finish and an historic lead
at that top ranking for six weeks in the summer, it comes as no surprise that Serena Williams has been voted WTA Player Of The Year, her fourth straight and seventh overall time receiving the honor.

Williams won her 19th, 20th and 21st majors at the Australian Open, French Open and Wimble- don, and coupled with her 2014 US Open title she completed a Non-Calendar Year Grand Slam, her second self-stylized Serena Slam. Her first ran from 2002 Roland Garros to the 2003 Australian Open.
Her dominance of the tour was so great that she made WTA Rankings history in the summer, too. For six weeks she actually had over twice as many ranking points as the No.2, something that had never happened before – Maria Sharapova was that No.2 for three weeks, Simona Halep the other three.
But the Grand Slams and historic ranking points lead are just the tip of the iceberg on the World No.1’s season. Her overall record was a sensational 53-3 – she won two more big WTA titles at Miami (a Premier Mandatory) and Cincinnati (a Premier 5), the only losses coming in the Madrid semifinals (Petra Kvitova), the Toronto semifinals (Belinda Bencic) and the US Open semifinals (Roberta Vinci).
