2016 ATP World Tour Awards
Roger Federer has won the Stefan Edberg Sportsmanship Award for a 12th time and was voted by fans as the ATPWorldTour.com Fans’ Favourite for a 14th straight year. Roger now holds a total of 33 ATP World Tour awards.
The Bryan brothers won the doubles category for ATPWorldTour.com Fans’ Favourite for a record 12th time.
Juan Martin Del Potro was chosen by fellow players as the Comeback Player of the Year. Juan Martin made a very successful comeback to the tour after suffering a very serious wrist injury. He went on to win an Olympic silver medal and his first tour title in 33 months when he was crowned champion in Stockholm a few weeks ago. Seeing Delpo back is inspiring and simply makes me smile. I predict Juan’s Top 10 appearance in 2017.
Lucas Pouille has been voted as he Most Improved Player of the Year. Daniel Evans, Dominic Thiem, and Alexander Zverev were among the nominees for this year’s award.
Young American player Taylor Fritz has been chosen as ATP Star of Tomorrow presented by Emirates. At age 19 he is the youngest player ranked in the Top 100 of the ATP singles ranking.
Marin Cilic has been honoured with the Arthur Ashe Humanitarian Award for off-court philanthropy through his foundation, which aspires to give young people a better access to education.
In 2016 ATP has introduced a new award - ATP Coach of the Year with Magnus Norman as its first recipient. Norman’s hard work and dedication were key elements in Stan Wawrinka’s US Open win this year. This was Stan’s 3rd major final appearance and 3rd win.
