Rusedski rewarded with BBC accolade

In 1997, tennis star Greg Rusedski was crowned Sports Personality of the Year.

This season was arguably Rusedski's most memorable, as he managed to make it to the US Open final where he was beaten by Australian Pat Rafter.

Shortly afterwards, Rusedski reached his career high ranking of number four in the world.
