World number one tennis star Novak Djokovic and Ethiopian athlete Genzebe Dibaba were named Laureus sportsman and woman of the year Wednesday at an event in Shanghai that also honoured China's sporting trailblazers. Germany's world-conquering footballers were chosen as team of the year at the Laureus Sports Awards, while a heavily pregnant Li Na, China's two-time Grand Slam winning champion, picked up the exceptional achievement award. The pioneering tennis star, who bowed out from the sport last year, collected the award on a night of success for China, with former NBA superstar Yao Ming picking up the spirit of sport award in his home city. Among the sporting greats attending the show were China's 2004 Olympic hurdling champion Liu Xiang -- another Shanghai hero -- who retired earlier this month. Djokovic is currently playing at the Monte Carlo Masters and was not at the event to collect his second sportsman of the year award.
