Top-ranked Rafael Nadal has won the ATP tour's Stefan Edberg Sportsmanship Award for the first time, ending Roger Federer's streak of six in a row.

Nadal earned the award, which is voted on by tour players, after winning three Grand Slam tournaments in 2010.

He has locked up the year-end No 1 ranking ahead of the season-ending ATP World Tour finals, which start Sunday in London.

Federer is still the most popular player on tour, winning the Fan Favorite award for a record eighth straight year.

The tour said on Saturday that Federer earned 47 percent of votes, compared to 42% for Nadal.

American twins Bob and Mike Bryan were the most popular doubles pair for the sixth year in a row, winning 44% of fan votes.
