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 also dominated between 2011 and 2015.


Men's singles

Andy Murray sealed the year-end No. 1 ranking in the final match of the season after defeating his great rival Novak Djokovic to win the ATP World Tour Finals.

He won a total of nine titles during a milestone year, including his second Wimbledon triumph, and became the first player in history to win two Olympic singles gold medals with victory over Juan Martin del Potro at Rio 2016.

Murray said: “It means a lot to me to be named ITF World Champion. I have had such a memorable year, winning again at Wimbledon, retaining my Olympic title, and clinching the year-end No. 1 ranking in the last match of the season. It is particularly special with my brother Jamie also becoming World Champion.” 

Murray will receive his 2016 award at the ITF World Champions Dinner in Paris on 6 June 2017.

Men's doubles

Jamie Murray and Bruno Soares clinched the year-end No. 1 team ranking in the very last event of 2016 at the ATP World Tour Finals.

The British-Brazilian duo enjoyed a breakthrough first season together, capturing their first Grand Slam title at the Australian Open, and going on to win the US Open. These were the first major men’s doubles titles for both players.

Murray said: “We are very proud to receive this award. It's been an incredible year for us, winning two Grand Slams and finishing as the No. 1 team in just our first season together.”

Soares said: “As a new team coming into the season there is a lot of expectation and belief, but also some doubts and uncertainty, so for us to finish the year as the No. 1 team winning two Slams was amazing. It gives us a lot to look forward to in the future."

Murray and Soares will receive their 2016 award at the ITF World Champions Dinner in Paris on 6 June 2017.
