The Scot was given the top award at a ceremony at the National Tennis Centre in Roehampton after a year in which he has won six ATP World Tour titles and reached number two in the world in August.

Murray, now the world number four, did not attend the ceremony as he is currently training in Miami, but he said: “Thank you to everyone, it’s an honour to win this award and it means a lot after a long season.”

US Open junior champion Heather Watson won the AEGON Junior Player of the Year while Colin Fleming and Ken Skupski, who have enjoyed a rapid rise up the doubles world rankings and collected two ATP Tour titles, were named Team of the Year.

Watson said: “I am really excited and honoured. This has been a great year for me and I am looking forward to 2010 and playing on the WTA Tour more frequently.”
