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.

Djokovic joins Rafael Nadal, Federer, Carlos Moya, former South African president Nelson Mandela and Arthur Ashe as former winners of the Arthur Ashe Humanitarian Award which recognized the Serb’s contributions through the Novak Djokovic Foundation, his role as a UNICEF ambassador and other individual ventures.

Djokovic win his first round robin match yesterday in Group “A” competition. Tomorrow comes the big test against Andy Murray.

7 Comments for Novak Djokovic Receives A Really Big Trophy For Finishing The Year No. 1 [Video]

Thanks for the video. Congrats to Nole! So happy for him for both awards, one for his work on the court, one for his work off it. :)

Congrats to Nole and his fans!

Michael Says:

More than the ATP player of the year trophy, it would be the humanitarian award which would have impressed Novak much. Ofcourse this year cannot be comparable to 2011 when Novak reigned supremacy right from January to December, while this year right in the middle it was Roger who took control and faltered towards the end to give way for Novak by default when he was beaten in Basel and skipped Paris which cost him a lot of points. But that said apart, Novak truly deserves to be No.1 for his consistency throughout the year on all courts. Indomitable will is the strength of Novak and he is a player of big points on the big stage. In Shanghai particularly although Andy was the better player in most part of the match and that was the best Tennis one can see from him, the endurance and mental fortitude of Novak proved to be the difference in the end and he emerged as the Champion. As Novak said in the ceremony he wants this journey to continue for more years to come. Ofcourse, he can say that with confidence of being what he is. Afterall, he was the one who broke the shackles of the Fedal legacy in Tennis and that is a supreme feat by an yardstick.

Congrats to Nole and fans on both of your awards,backing up what he did last year,by having another solid year was amazing,deffinetly the player of the year,i have to say im with Grendel on the whole charity foundation thing though,dont get me wrong its great that these players are in a position financially to help the poor and needy,but does it really have to be made a big deal about,many people give to charity all the time and dont get awards for it.

rogerafa Says:

Another great year for Novak. Backing it up is not easy. The big trophy seems to be a lucky charm for him. He also gave two nice little speeches. He seems to be confident, secure and comfortable with his world number one status.
