Serena Williams: Up for monthly award

The six nominations for the Sky Sports Sportswoman of the Month for May have been confirmed.

Serena Williams, Rebecca Downie, Marianne Vos, Lucy Garner, Eni Aluko and Natasha Dowie are all up for the award which was won last month by Olympic dressage gold medallist Charlotte Dujardin.

All of the contenders have enjoyed an outstanding month in their respective sports.

Williams won her 60th career title at the Italian Open to move up to seventh in the all-time list whilst Rebecca Downie made British Gymnastics history when she won gold on the uneven bars at the European championships.

In cycling, Marianne Vos won the inaugural Women's Tour of Britain with Sky Academy Sports Scholar Lucy Garner claiming the best British rider jersey with a seventh overall finish on home soil.

And Eni Aluko made it seven goals in seven starts for England scoring twice against Ukraine in their World Cup qualifier - a 4-0 drubbing in which fellow nominee Natasha Dowie also found the net.

You can vote at www.skysports.com/sportswomen - the closing date is June 2.
