Serena voted AP Female Athlete of Decade

   Serena Williams, a part-time Silicon Valley resident, was selected as the Female Athlete of the Decade by The Associated Press on Saturday.
   Williams, 38, won a dozen Grand Slam singles titles during the decade – no other woman won more than three – and was ranked No. 1 for 3 1/2 years in a row, equaling Steffi Graf's record for most consecutive weeks atop the rankings.
   Finishing second in voting by sports editors and beat writers was gymnast Simone Biles, the 2019 AP Female Athlete of the Year. Following Biles were swimmer Katie Ledecky and skiers Lindsey Vonn and Mikaela Shiffrin.
  NBA star LeBron James was chosen as the AP Male Athlete of the Decade today, easily beating out runner-up Tom Brady of the New England Patriots. Trailing Brady were sprinter Usain Bolt, soccer star Lionel Messi and swimmer Michael Phelps.
