Italy’s Jannik Sinner has concluded his career-best ATP Tour season by being voted the Fans’ Favourite singles player in the ATP Awards. Sinner achieved notable successes in 2023, winning four tour-level titles, including his first ATP Masters 1000 crown in Toronto. He reached the Nitto ATP Finals title match, his first major Wimbledon semi-final, and played a key role in Italy winning the Davis Cup.
With a 64-15 tour-level record, Sinner finished the season at a career-high No. 4 in the Pepperstone ATP Rankings, marking the first time an Italian man ended a season in the Top 5. The announcement follows Sinner’s nomination for two other ATP Awards this season: Most Improved Player of the Year and the Stefan Edberg Sportsmanship Award. Sinner’s coaches, Darren Cahill and Simone Vagnozzi, are also nominated for Coach of the Year.
The win will delight Sinner’s fan club, known as ‘The Carota Boys’, famous for appearing at tournaments in carrot costumes, a tradition stemming from Sinner’s carrot-eating moment in Vienna in 2019. Notably, Roger Federer has won the Fans’ Favourite award a record 19 times, and Rafael Nadal claimed the honour for the first-time last year. The announcement of Sinner’s win comes after Karen Khachanov and Andrey Rublev were named the Fans’ Favourite doubles team.
