Roger Federer: Still popular with the fans

The Swiss star was chosen via an online poll and claimed a massive 57 per cent of all votes cast, beating Briton Andy Murray into second place.

It is one of two ATP awards to go to Federer, who also picks up the Stefan Edberg Sportsmanship Award - voted for by his fellow players - for the eighth time.

The ATP professionals have also voted Slovakia's Martin Klizan, who made the fourth round at the US Open before winning his maiden title in St Petersburg, as newcomer of the year.

The players have chosen Australian Marinko Matosevic as most improved player of 2012, while the title of comeback player of the year goes to 34-year-old Tommy Haas, who won in Halle back in the summer before climbing back into the world's top 25.

Year-end world number one Novak Djokovic is handed the Arthur Ashe Humanitarian of the Year award by the ATP for his off-court efforts.

The Bryan twins, Bob and Mike, will finish the year as the top-ranked doubles players. They have been voted as fans' favourites in doubles.

Many of the ATP awards will be handed out in on-court presentations at this week's ATP World Tour Finals in London.
