# Roommates, it’s no secret that Serena Williams is one of the greatest athletes of all time, men or women, so her last honor is the perfect way to recognize her greatness. Serena has officially been named the best female athlete of the decade.
Serena Williams is one of the most decorated and famous female athletes in history, having dominated tennis for over 15 years – and making it easy. While various media compile their “best” lists to commemorate the 2010s, @APNews has just given Serena the high ranking of the best female athlete of the decade.
Over the past decade, here are some of Serena’s many distinctions in tennis that make her more deserving of the title of best athlete. She has a dozen single Grand Slam titles, by comparison, no other woman has had more than three single titles in the past 10 seasons. Serena was also ranked number one for three and a half years in a row in the WTA ranking.
She doesn’t just inspire and write history on the ground, because almost everything Serena does is worthy of interest. Whether it’s triumphs and trophies, fashion statements and disputes with tournament officials, endless magazine covers, uplifting Super Bowl commercial with a message about empowering women, the birth of her daughter or the fear of health that followed – Serena is a great example of how strong and powerful women are.
As she enters a new decade in her late 30s, Serena always wins games and reaches the Grand Slam finals. Serena was selected by the Associated Press as the female athlete of the decade after a vote by Associated Press editors and sports writers.
Three of the five Serena AP female athlete awards have been presented over the past decade, in 2013, 2015 and 2018. She also won in 2002 and 2009.
Roommates, what do you think?
