As has become tradition ahead of the Barclays ATP World Tour Finals, the ATP Tour presented the year-end awards to the players deserving of recognition for their efforts.
17-time Grand Slam champion Roger Federer was voted by his peers to win the Stefan Edberg Sportsmanship Award for the 10th time in his career. He also won the ATPWorldTour.com Fans’ Favourite award for a whooping 12th consecutive year.
Following his remarkable showing at the Swiss Indoor Basel, where he reached the semi-final round with a victory over Rafael Nadal, Borna Coric was handed the Star of Tomorrow award by the ATP. Goffin was awarded the Comeback Player of the Year.
For his fundraising efforts and campaigns over the past couple of years – campaigns that supported the likes of Ross Hutchins, who suffered from Hodgkin’s lymphoma, and the late Elena Baltacha, who succumbed to liver cancer at the age of 30 – Andy Murray was selected by the ATP for the Arthur Ashe Humanitarian Award.
