Murray has had an amazing year, winning Wimbledon and the US Open. He is the first British man to win a Grand Slam singles tournament in 77 years. Murray was a clear favorite to win the award, and he was very excited to be named the winner. After the announcement, he said, “I’m just so happy to have won this. It’s a great honor. “Murray is an amazing athlete and an even better person. He is a role model for young people all over the world. Congratulations, Andy Murray! You are a true champion!
We Have a Winner for Sports Personality of the Year
The votes are in and the winner of Sports Personality of the Year is… drumroll please… Novak Djokovic! The Serbian tennis star beat out some stiff competition to take home the top prize, including Lewis Hamilton, Mo Farah, and Chris Froome.
It’s been quite a year for Djokovic. He started off by winning the Australian Open, then followed that up with a win at Wimbledon. He capped off his Grand Slam season by winning the US Open, making him the first man since Rod Laver in 1969 to hold all four major titles at the same time. Not too shabby!
Djokovic’s success on the court has helped him become one of the most popular tennis players in the world. He’s known for his entertaining style of play, as well as his sportsmanship. He’s also become a bit of a fashion icon, thanks to his partnership with Lacoste.
So what’s next for Djokovic? He’ll be looking to defend his titles at the Australian Open, Wimbledon, and the US Open next year. And with his recent victory at the ATP Finals, he’ll be starting the new year as the world’s No. 1 ranked player. Not bad for a guy who just turned 30!
