Rafael Nadal has been named the recipient of the Stefan Edberg Sportsmanship Award for 2021 by the Association of Tennis Professionals (ATP). He has now received this honour five times, first triumphing in 2010.
“I can’t be happier to receive one more time the Sportsmanship Award from my colleagues on the Tour. It means a lot to me, so thanks a lot to every player that thinks that I am the right one to receive this award.
“Honestly, it means a lot to me because I try to be always correct on court. Thanks for believing in me and I wish all the very best for the 2022 season to all my colleagues on the Tour and I hope to see you soon.”
