LOS ANGELES, CA, USA - The 20th annual ESPY Awards took place in Los Angeles on Wednesday night, recognizing individual and team achievements in sports for the last year. Two of the WTA's biggest stars were in attendance.

The four Grand Slam champions between Wimbledon last year and the French Open this year - Petra Kvitova, Sam Stosur, Victoria Azarenka and Maria Sharapova - were all nominated for Best Female Tennis Player, but it was Sharapova who came away the winner for her efforts in Paris this year, where she completed her collection of all four Grand Slam tournaments.

Sharapova was also nominated for Best Female Athlete and Best Comeback.

Also in attendance was former Top 5 player Daniela Hantuchova, who had been featured in ESPN Magazine: The Body Issue, which came out this week. "I had so much fun at the ESPY Awards last night," she wrote on her website. "It was amazing seeing so many great athletes under one roof together. And of course it's always great to be in Los Angeles - I really love this city!"

Roger Federer, Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal were nominated for Best Male Tennis Player, with Djokovic winning; the Serb, who has won five Grand Slams, was also nominated for Best Male Athlete and Best International Athlete.
