Djokovic wins Laureus Sportsman of the Year Award as Naomi Osaka is named Breakthrough Athlete

Novak Djokovic, on Monday, won the Laureus Sportsman of the Year Award at the 2019 Laureus World Sports Awards in Monte-Carlo.

It was a reward for his stunning achievements in the second half of the 2018 tennis season, a period during which he won Wimbledon, the US Open and two ATP Masters event (Rolex Shanghai Masters and the Cincinnati Masters) as well as regaining the world number one ranking from as far back as 22nd in June.

“A Laureus Award is what every athlete wants to win, and this one is a huge honour for me. Being among so many sporting greats here tonight… gives this award a special meaning for me,” said Djokovic. “Last year was an incredible season for me. Returning from injury to win Wimbledon and the US Open is something I’ll remember forever.”

This marks the fourth time that Djokovic has won the award, having previously won it in 2012, 2015 and 2016. Other nominees this year included American basketball star LeBron James, Kenyan long-distance runner Eliud Kipchoge and French football star Kylian Mbappe.

Meanwhile, Naomi Osaka won the Laureus World Breakthrough of the Year Award for her remarkable victory at the US Open.

As a 20-year-old, Osaka made a stunning run to the final of the US Open, where she beat Serena Williams for her first major title.

The Japanese has since gone on to win back-to-back Grand Slam titles at the Australian Open in January as well as becoming the world number one – the first Japanese player in history to be ranked so.
