As the 2023 ATP season comes to a close and the 2024 season closes in, Jannik SInner, Andrey Rublev and Felix Auger-Aliassime were among those to be rewarded in the 2023 ATP Awards.
Sinner, current World Number Four, was voted the 2023 ATP Fans' Favourite becoming the first nonmajor winner to achieve the feat. He had a career-best season with four titles and a 64-15 win/loss record on the tour.

Rublev also a leading winner

While Andrey Rublev was also awarded as he and Karen Khachanov won the ATP Fans' Favourite Doubles Team. The Russian duo only played eight tournaments together, but won the Masters 1000 in Madrid. Like the Sinner win, it was decided by fans online with only the top 15 nominated.
Felix Auger-Aliassime also won the Humanitarian ATP Award. Despite not having the best season on the court winning only 23/42 matches, he took home the award after his charitable efforts towards Togo.
He has reportedly contributed $400,000 to the African country since 2020, with his father being born in Togo. "When I was told I would receive the 2023 Arthur Ashe Humanitarian Award, I was pleasantly surprised. It was great news. But you don't ever help others to win awards. I know Arthur didn’t," he said. "I am glad to be recognized for not just what I do as a tennis player, but as a person. My dad, Sam, grew up in Togo, a third-world country, where he did not have many opportunities for education or access to sports. When he moved to Canada, it was always important for him to give back to his family and others he knew back in Togo."
Finally Jose Higuras scooped up the Tim Gulliksen Career Coach award. The former World Number 6 worked with the likes of Carlos Moya, Roger Federer and Pete Sampras to great success.
