The nomination for the 2023 ATP Awards has been announced which features some of the best performers of the year.
The awards will be announced in the second week of December which will include different categories. Italy’s Jannik Sinner has been nominated in four different player-related categories after his impressive performances in the calendar year.
His coaches Darren Cahill and Simone Vagnozzi have also been nominated for the Coaches of the Year award. Sinner, along with America’s Ben Shelton are nominated in the Most Improved Player of the Year category.
The Stefan Edberg Sportsmanship Award category nominations included the world number two Spain’s Carlos Alcaraz, Grigor Dimitrov, Hubert Hurkacz and Sinner. The current world number four had an amazing end to the year where he produced some remarkable performances.
He first managed to qualify for the final of the last major competition in men’s tennis in the calendar year — the ATP Finals — in his home country but ended up losing to Serbia’s legendary tennis star Novak Djokovic in the final with a score of 6-3, 6-3.
He later played a key role in helping Italy in winning the Davis Cup title for the first time in 48 years as they defeated Australia with a score of 2-0 in the final.
