The tennis player’s US Open win could force the corporation to introduce new categories such as best Olympian and Paralympian and male and female personality of the year.Last month Ladbrokes was so sure Tour de France winner and Olympic time trial champion Bradley Wiggins was going to win, it paid out early on all bets.But with Mo Farah, Jessica Ennis, Ellie Simmonds and David Weir rising to prominence that looks less certain.‘There could be a female personality of the year, which I don’t think would detract from the main award, and there could be an Olympian of the year,’ said James Hutchison, from sports prediction website Superbru.Bookmaker Ladbrokes lists Wiggins as 11/10 favourite for the top BBC award, with Murray on 5/2, Farah on 11/4, Ennis on 12/1 and Weir on 20/1.
