Andy Murray has won the ATP's Arthur Ashe humanitarian award for his involvement in fundraising exhibitions and campaigns.

The British No.1 is recognised for his work in helping great friend Ross Hutchins organise last summer's Rally Against Cancer at Queen's Club to raise money for The Royal Marsden hospital, where Hutchins was successfully treated for Hodgkin's lymphoma.

Murray was also heavily involved in this summer's fundraising events following the death of former British number one Elena Baltacha from liver cancer and has worked with Unicef, United for Wildlife and Malaria No More.

Murray is joined by the likes of Roger Federer and the Bryan Brothers among the winners of the ATP's World Tour awards.

Federer was selected by his peers as winner of the sportsmanship award - named after his coach Stefan Edberg - for a 10th time, while Bob and Mike Bryan take the doubles award for a sixth straight year.

Croatian 17-year-old Borna Coric is named the Star of Tomorrow as the youngest player ranked in the top 100, while Roberto Bautista Agut of Spain was selected as the most improved player, and David Goffin of Belgium the comeback player of the year.

The battle for the year-end No.1 ranking will be decided between Federer and Novak Djokovic at the ATP World Tour Finals starting in London on Sunday.
