Nadal Honoured By Peers With Stefan Edberg Sportsmanship Award
Fellow players voted Rafael Nadal as the winner of the Stefan Edberg Sportsmanship Award in the 2018 ATP World Tour Awards presented by Moët & Chandon, recognising the Spaniard for his fair play, professionalism and integrity on and off the court. Nadal also received this honour in 2010.
This season, the 32-year-old spent 36 weeks atop the ATP Rankings and won five titles, including record 11th trophies at Roland Garros, the Rolex Monte-Carlo Masters and Barcelona Open Banc Sabadell. Off the court, Nadal supported flood relief efforts in Mallorca.
Nadal has won an ATP World Tour Award in each of the player-voted categories: Newcomer (2003), Most Improved (2005), Comeback (2013), Sportsmanship (2010, 2018). He has also been awarded the ATP World Tour No. 1 trophy on four occasions (2008, 2010, 2013, 2017) and was named Arthur Ashe Humanitarian of the Year in 2011.
