It has been a dream year for Andy Murray, the 26-year-old Scottish tennis star who picked up his second Grand Slam win in 2013 and first Wimbledon trophy.

Murray transformed himself over the last year from talented tennis player that couldn't get over the major hump to one of the best players in the world and a force to be reckoned with at every Grand Slam.

All that was enough to land him the prestigious Best British Sports Star away from the Radio 1 Teen Awards. Murray couldn't make the show, but he did film this entertaining video where he accepted the award while getting pummeled with tennis balls.

It made the speech a little tougher, but Murray got through it, despite getting a few balls to the dome as he was speaking.

Murray, who most expected to be playing at the ATP World Tour Finals this week in London, had to withdraw because of a back surgery he underwent to prepare for the 2014 season. Still, a fun video with the No. 4 player in the world who will never forget this 2013 season.
