Novak Djokovic, Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal were all presented with 2011 ATP World Tour Awards presented by Moët & Chandon, announced during the Barclays ATP World Tour Finals. Djokovic received the year-end ATP World Tour No. 1 award for the first time, following a banner year in which he won three Grand Slam titles and a record five ATP World Tour Masters 1000 titles.

Federer edged out his competitors in two award categories, respectively selected by fans and ATP World Tour players. The 30-year-old Swiss extended his reign as the ATPWorldTour.com Fans’ Favorite, presented by RICOH for a ninth straight year, and won the Stefan Edberg Sportsmanship Award for a seventh time in eight years. Since 2003, Federer has now won 22 ATP World Tour Awards.

“One of the reasons why I play this wonderful sport is for my fans so I would like to thank them once again for their continued support,” said Federer. “It really is so amazing and means the world to me. It’s also gratifying to be recognised by my fellow players for exhibiting fair play on and off the court. The award is named after Stefan Edberg, one of my childhood idols, so it is even more special.”

Nadal was selected as the recipient of the Arthur Ashe Humanitarian Award for his charitable efforts with the Rafa Nadal Foundation, which provides opportunities for socially disadvantaged youth.

Americans Bob & Mike Bryan also picked up a pair of awards, the ATP World Tour No. 1 Doubles Team and ATPWorldTour.com Fans’ Favourite, for a record seventh time each.
