2006 was undoubtedly the year of Jeev Milkha Singh. After a dry stint from 2000 to 2005, Jeev showed his mettle winning the Volvo China Open, the Casio World Open and the Golf Nippon Series JT Cup.

Leander Paes, who won the French Open and the US Open men's doubles titles in 2009 continued to dazzle the tennis world.
