Novak Djokovic was honored today at the London ATP Finals for his second straight finish as the No. 1 player in the world. Djokovic appeared on the court following Roger Federer’s win where he received a second giant trophy recognizing his year-end finish.
“It is an incredibly satisfying feeling to win the ATP World Tour No. 1 trophy for a second time. I hope to be able to fight for this title next year,” Djokovic said after receiving the award from ATP CEO Brad Drewett.
Djokovic was also given the Arthur Ashe Humanitarian of the Year award.
