ESPY Awards 2010: List of Winners

ESPY Awards 2010: List of Winners
Tennis wonder woman Serena Williams was honored with an ESPY for Best Female Tennis Player, while Los Angeles Lakers Kobe Bryant was given the Best NBA Player and Landon Donovan was recognized for his spectacular goals during the World Cup which was not surprising.
But what was shocking was the fact that Tiger Woods who won Best Golfer a million times in a row was not given that honor this evening and the trophy was awarded to Phil Mickelson instead.
Here are the names of the 2010 ESPYs winners:
