Nominees have been announced in the 2020 ATP Awards for all player-voted categories — Comeback Player of the Year, Most Improved Player of the Year, Newcomer of the Year, Stefan Edberg Sportsmanship Award — and Coach of the Year.
Diego Schwartzman has received two nods, for Sportsmanship and Most Improved, while his coach, Juan Ignacio Chela, has been nominated by his peers for Coach of the Year. Schwartzman will be up against three-time winner Rafael Nadal, John Millman and Dominic Thiem in the Sportsmanship category, and go against Ugo Humbert, Andrey Rublev and Jannik Sinner for Most Improved.
ATP Awards winners, including Fans’ Favourite and the recipient of the Arthur Ashe Humanitarian Award, will be revealed later this month. Fans can vote for their favourite singles player and doubles team through Friday, 11 December.
