EVEN AFTER US OPEN LOSS, SHARAPOVA’S A TEEN CHOICE: Maria Sharapova won’t win the U.S. Open, but she’s taking home an even better prize - the Teen Choice Award for Best Female Athlete:
The Russian superstar joined such esteemed award winners of the evening like Tyra Banks, Justin Timberlake, “American Idol” contestant Sanjaya and Miley Cyrus a.k.a. Hannah Montana a.k.a. Billy Ray’s daughter.
Sharapova just might be a popular figure with the 13-19 male demographic, as she was able to beat out fellow netter Serena Williams, golfer Annika Sorenstram, the Rutgers women’s basketball team, and Belmont Stakes winner Rags to Riches.
Rags to Riches? Think how embarrasing it would have been for Maria and the other gals to lose to a horse. (Insert your own WNBA joke here.)
