Casper Ruud has been nominated for the Most Improved Player of the Year Award and the Stefan Edberg Sportsmanship Award, whilst father and coach Christian Ruud has been nominated for Coach of the Year by fellow coaches. Felix Auger-Aliassime, Rafael Nadal, and Frances Tiafoe have been shortlisted alongside Ruud for Sportsmanship.
Carlos Alcaraz, Aslan Karatsev, Cameron Norrie, and Casper Ruud have all been nominated for the Most Improved Player of the Year Award. Murray, who won the comeback player of the year award in 2019 and is once again nominated for the same.
