This is a list of all the awards given by the Association of Tennis Professionals (ATP) to players and others of particular distinction during a given season.

Player & Team of the Year[edit]

The ATP Player and Team of the Year awards are presently given to the player and team who end the year as world No. 1 in the ATP Rankings.[1] In earlier years, this was not explicitly the case as in 1975, 1976, 1977, 1978, 1982 and 1989 the Players of the Year named by the ATP (listed below) did not have the No. 1 ranking based on the ATP's point system at the end of that particular year. In those years, the number one ranking was held by Jimmy Connors (1975–78), John McEnroe (1982) and Ivan Lendl (1989). The most successful tennis players ever in this category are Pete Sampras and Novak Djokovic (Serbia).
