This year was spectacular for me. For @SportsIllustrated to recognize my hard work, my dedication, and my sheer determination gives me hope to continue on and do better. As I always say, it takes a village it's not just one person. This is not just an accomplishment for me, but for my whole team. I am beyond honored. I love you guys! 2016? #letsdoit ❤️💋
Tennis champion Serena Williams has been named Sport Illustrated’s 2015 Sportsperson of the Year. She’s only the third woman ever to have this honor. Fellow tennish player Chris Evert had the title in 1976 while track athlete Mary Decker received the moniker in 1983.
