2016 has turned out to be one of the most significant years of this decade, probably the most significant since 2008- when the castle of a particular crafty Swiss was jolted and the world witnessed a new force rise to the top of the table, after 237 weeks. This time it was a Serbian force, that made way for the greatest British athlete to reach the sporting pinnacle, giving the viewers much to look forward to in 2017, after couple of monotonous years.
Speaking of that crafty Swiss and the man who dislodged him from the top, it’s been a hard year for them too. Struggling with injuries and forms, both called off their seasons abruptly, naturally creating turmoil amongst the biggest fan bases of our game- one of the reasons for this long and torturing wait for the 2017 season.
This year has witnessed everything, from seeing the mighty Williams receive the silver plate at the maiden Grand Slam, to welcoming back the loved Tower of Tandil and applauding his journey to the podium of the Olympics. Mourning for one Swiss at Wimbledon to celebrating the success of another at Flushing Meadows. And the latest? The arrival of a veteran Spanish number one to the team of El Matador (The Uncle still remains though).
For a year comprising of such interesting turn of events, here’s everything associated to it, ranging from one to ten. So sit and look back!
