Men



Bjorn Borg dominated in the early years of this prestigious accolade, being named the inaugural men's ITF World Champion in 1978 and following up with two more triumphs. John McEnroe and Ivan Lendl were both honoured three times apiece before Pete Sampras took over in the 1990s with six awards. Roger Federer stamped his authority by winning on five occasions between 2004 and 2009, while Novak Djokovic has dominated the last three years.


Men's singles

Novak Djokovic narrowly edged out Rafael Nadal to become Men’s World Champion thanks to his consistency at the Grand Slam tournaments and year-end performances in 2013.

The 26-year-old won his third successive Australian Open title, and was a finalist at Wimbledon and the US Open and a semifinalist at Roland Garros.

He won seven titles during the year, including the ATP World Tour Finals, and was unbeaten in seven singles rubbers as Serbia reached the Davis Cup Final.

Djokovic said: “It is an honour to be named ITF World Champion for the third year running. I’ve had a great 2013 season, and managed to end the year on a high. This will definitely serve as a good platform for 2014.”

Djokovic received his 2013 award at the ITF World Champions Dinner in Paris on 3 June 2014.

Men's doubles

Bob and Mike Bryan were named Men’s Doubles World Champions for the tenth time after a spectacular year in which they narrowly failed to complete the Grand Slam.

Victories at the Australian Open, Roland Garros and Wimbledon saw the brothers hold all four majors at the same time, before they lost in the semifinals in New York. They won 11 events during 2013, to improve their all-time records to 15 Grand Slam titles and 93 titles in total.

Mike Bryan said: “We are very excited to be named ITF World Champions again. It's hard to believe we've won this award ten times given the strength of the competition the past decade. This may have been the best year of our careers and we look forward to another memorable awards dinner.”

The Bryan brothers received their 2013 award at the ITF World Champions Dinner in Paris on 3 June 2014.
