Wimbledon champion Venus Williams won the Whirlpool 6TH SENSE Player of the Year Award for 2008, being the player who has demonstrated the most intuition throughout the year, as voted in an online competition.
There were ten nominees, and fans from across Europe were voting. Along with Venus Williams, Ana Ivanovic was the finalist. From the two of them, an expert panel chose the winner.
Therefore, Venus has demonstrated best the 6TH SENSE attributes – intuition, intelligence, and precision – in the year of 2008.
Past 6TH SENSE winners include fellow former No.1s Justine Henin (2005, 2007) and Maria Sharapova (2006).
Williams is currently at the Sony Ericsson Championships in Doha where she will play the Sunday’s final against Russian Vera Zvonareva.
