This marks Serena's fourth consecutive POY award.
The Year of Serena Williams continues.
The tennis champion was awarded WTA Player of the Year for the seventh time in her career on Tuesday, USA Today reports.
For four consecutive years, Williams has been voted as the POY by the World Tennis Association for the top coveted accolade.
Williams had an record-setting and breaking year in sports. She was ranked No. 1 during 2015 and scored three major tournament wins—the Australian Open, French Open and Wimbledon.
Williams was on track for a calendar Grand Slam year before losing to Roberta Vinci during the U.S. Open in September.
Other WTA winners included Serena’s older sister, Venus, who was recognized as Comeback Player of the Year.
Congrats Serena and Venus, too!
