Serena Williams Named Laureus World Sports Awards Sportswoman Of The Year For The 5th Time

Four-time Olympic gold medalist Serena Williams now has another honor to further distinguish her from her peers.





Williams was named the Laureus World Sports Awards Sportswoman of the Year on Tuesday night at a ceremony in Monaco, giving her a record fifth win. Her 11 nominations for the international honor is also a record.

The 36-year-old from Palm Beach Gardens, Florida, won her 23rd Grand Slam title and her seventh Australian Open in 2017 before going on maternity leave and giving birth to her first child.

Only Margaret Court has more Grand Slam wins with 24, but Williams’ holds the record for the open era.

Williams returned to competition for an exhibition match in December but skipped January’s Australian Open.

In addition to her dominant play in the Grand Slams, Williams has competed in four Olympics since 2000, missing only the 2004 Games. She has one gold medal in singles, won in 2012 in London, and three gold medals in doubles (2000, 2008, 2012). Entering the 2016 Olympics, she and sister Venus were undefeated in Olympic doubles at 15-0 and were the winningest doubles team in Olympic history.
