World’s top-ranked tennis players – Novak Djokovic and Serena Williams – were rewarded for their impressive show this year as the duo bagged the award for ‘best tennis player’ at the Excellence in Sports Performance Yearly (ESPY) Awards in the men’s and women’s category respectively.

Having won the Australian Open and the Wimbledon Championships, besides a runner-up finish at the French Open, Djokovic was chosen over his closest rival Roger Federer for the coveted reward here on Wednesday.

Williams, on the other hand, predictably bagged the award as she continues to dominate the women’s circuit with unprecedented supremacy. Having pulled off all the three Grand Slams this year, her name came as a no bombshell.

The duo took over from last year’s winners Rafael Nadal and Maria Sharapova to clinch the sport’s top honours at the prestigious ceremony.
