Serena Williams Is Sports Illustrated's Sportsperson of the Year!

Serena Williams takes a seat on her throne for the cover of Sports Illustrated‘s Sportsperson of the Year issue.

The 34-year-old tennis player is the first female athlete to get a solo honor from the magazine in more than 30 years!

“She was the most deserving person for the award. She had an amazing year. The way she won her events; the fact that she’s done this for so many years at such a high level,” Sports Illustrated Group editor Paul Fichtenbaum said. “She was a terrific candidate in a year of terrific candidates.”

This is the first time that the award is being titled Sportsperson of the Year, rather than Sportsman or Sportswoman.

“We just felt this was a natural evolution. … We’re not making a huge deal out of it,” Fichtenbaum said. “It just feels like the right time to make the change.”

It was Serena‘s idea to pose on the cover in high heels and on a throne, according to the mag’s managing editor Christian Stone. The idea was intended “to express her own ideal of femininity, strength, power.”

FYI: Serena is wearing Michael Costello on the cover.

She was with me from 1999 until today and I miss her so much.”

“I got out of the shower this afternoon and she was not there to lick my leg as she always did everyday to remind me how much she loved me. I feel so lucky to have such a special friend. Give your dog, cat, pet a big hug. #breakingheart #bff Jackie Baila Pete Williams I will miss you and your memory will live forever,” Serena added.
