18. 04. 2009. · The best Serbian tennis player is nominated for Laureus World Sports Awards for the second year in a row.
Like last year, Novak is nominated for category Laureus World Breakthrough of the Year. His ‘rivals’ in that category will be Serbian tennis player Ana Ivanovic, British swimmer Rebecca Adlington, German Formula1 driver Sebastian Vettel, American golf player Anthony Kim and Chinese gymnast Zou Kai.
Laureus World Sports Awards was a glamurous ceremony in previous years, but this year Laureus and its Partners have made the decision that due to the current economic situation it would be inappropriate to stage a full-scale Laureus World Sports Awards Ceremony, so the winners will be given their awards in the next 2 months at individual ceremonies.
