Maria Sharapova wins big at LA ESPY awards

17 Jul 2007

Tennis ace Maria Sharapova visited Los Angeles at the weekend to attend the ESPY Awards, an annual sporting awards ceremony produced by US television network ESPN.

The Russian tennis ace was recognised as the year's best female tennis player and best international female athlete at the gala event, which is the sporting equivalent of Hollywood's Oscar awards ceremony.

Adorned in a sexy black leather dress and matching stilettos, the former world number one was joined by fellow tennis star Serena Williams.

This year's Wimbledon champion Roger Federer earned his third consecutive best male tennis player award, while American golfer Tiger Woods recorded his eighteenth ESPY award scooping the year's best golfer award.

Film and music stars including Samuel L Jackson, Christian Slater and Mary J Blige also attended the ceremony, which was staged at Los Angeles' Kodak Theatre.
