Williams, 34, wearing a custom designer Michael Costello outfit won three Grand Slam titles and lost three times in 56 matches as she dominated women’s tennis this year. Williams is the first individual woman to be selected to the honor since track champion Mary Decker in 1983.
“This year was spectacular,” Serena Williams said in a statement. "For Sports Illustrated to recognize my hard work, dedication and sheer determination with this award gives me hope to continue on and do better. As I always say, it takes a village— not just one person. This is not just an accomplishment for me, but for my whole team and all my fans. I am beyond honored.”
Williams was seen stopping near the 2km mark of the Serena Williams Live Ultimate Run South Beach 2015 event in Miami where she jumped into taxi. The car then sped to the finish line.
She appeared to start the run well on Sunday morning but by around the two kilometer mark, witnesses at the event say they saw her climbing into the yellow cab.
So we ask is she wrong for doing that or not?
