Roger Federer

Roger Federer again swept the board as the winners of the ATP World Tour Awards were announced.

The Swiss star enjoyed a momentous 2009, completing his grand slam collection by winning a first French Open in June to equal Pete Sampras' world record of 14 majors then surpassing the mark with a sixth Wimbledon title.

He also reached the final at the 2009 Australian Open and US Open and regained the world number one spot he had lost to Rafael Nadal.

Federer, 28, won the Player of the Year award for a fifth time, was selected by his fellow players to receive the Stefan Edberg Sportsmanship Award for a record sixth consecutive year and was voted Fans' Favourite for a seventh straight season.
