    Nadal wins Sportsmanship Award again as Murray named comeback player

    Dec 20, 2019

    LONDON — Rafael Nadal won his second consecutive Stefan Edberg Sportsmanship Award and third overall Thursday (Friday, Manila time), based on voting by other players, while Andy Murray was chosen the ATP's 2019 comeback player of the year.

    Murray, a three-time Grand Slam champion and former No. 1, said in January he thought he would retire this season because of a bad hip. But he wound up having a second operation and returned to the tour, winning a singles title and a doubles title.

    Other honorees from the men's tour included U.S. Open semifinalist Matteo Berrettini, chosen as most improved player after rising to No. 8 in the rankings from No. 54; 18-year-old Jannik Sinner, picked as newcomer of the year; and Gilles Cervara, who earned coach of the year honors after helping Daniil Medvedev reach nine finals, including a runner-up finish to Nadal at Flushing Meadows.
