NOT ev­ery­one’s cup of tea, but the Amer­i­can ten­nis star had a sen­sa­tional year. The 32-year-old has now se­cured 17 grand slam ti­tles af­ter rolling Maria Shara­pova in the French Open fi­nal and Vic­to­ria Azarenka in the US Open fi­nal. The world No. 1 lost to Sloane Stephens in the quar­ter fi­nals at Mel­bourne Park and Sabine Lisicki in the third round at Wim­ble­don. How? Wil­liams de­feated Li Na in the WTA Tour Cham­pi­onship fi­nal to end the year with a record of 78-4. She also pock­eted a record $12.3 mil­lion in prize­money. Loves win­ning, but still re­mains a bad loser.
