2016 has been an amazing Tennis season to say the least. With its fair share of ups and downs, both the ATP and the WTA tours have produced stunning results throughout the year, most notably the dethroning of the respective World No.1’s. Here in this article, we look at the 9 defining events of the 2016 Tennis Season.
1.) A New World No.1
Serbian Novak Djokovic was dethroned from the World No.1 spot by Andy Murray, who capitalized on the former’s late season woes. It was during this time, that German Angelique Kerber unseated the Queen of Tennis Serena Williams from the No.1 spot of the WTA Tour.
Sensational as these two achievements were, it was Murray’s late season charge that allowed him to cause the most dramatic finish to an ATP World Tour season, bringing out the unexpected, as he ended Djokovic’s reign at the top.
Kerber on the other hand, was at her perseverant best, racking up trophies, including her maiden grand slam in Australia followed by the US Open.
