Well, its nearly that time of year again. In my opinion there are only three plausible candidates. 3) Andy Murray. Reached his first grand slam final and won a few ranking events. Will close the year with a world ranking of 4. He has developed into a true contender this year and his success can only be good for British tennis. 2) Chris Hoy. Won three gold medals in Bejing. 1) Lewis Hamilton. The youngest ever F1 world champion. His success from humble beginnings is a source of much pride for the British public.
