LONDON -- Jannik Sinner earned the ATP's Most Improved Player and Fans' Favorite awards Friday, while Darren Cahill and Simone Vagnozzi shared Coach of the Year honors for working with the 22-year-old Italian.

Djokovic finished at No. 1 for the eighth time, adding to his record, after winning three Grand Slam titles and making the final at the year's other major tournament.

Other ATP award winners include Jan-Lennard Struff for Comeback Player of the Year and 19-year-old Arthur Fils for Newcomer of the Year.

Carlos Alcaraz won the Stefan Edberg Sportsmanship Award, and Felix Auger-Aliassime received the Arthur Ashe Humanitarian Award.
