Muguruza, Chan and Hingis crowned ITF World Champions

Nadal receives the honour for the third time, while it is the first year Muguruza has been recognised.

Spanish-Venezuelan Wimbledon champion Garbine Muguruza was named Women's Tennis Association (WTA) Player of the Year Friday.

Both on male and female sides it was very balanced, as Nadal and Roger Federer split the two Grand Slam titles and the Swiss beat his rival four times on four matches played, but the 31-year-old clinched the Year-End No. 1, which was decisive.

The Spaniard also became the oldest player to finish the year as world No 1 since the ATP rankings began in 1973. Many thanks to my team and my fans, and a special thank you to my uncle Toni for all these years', Nadal said in an ITF statement.

The International Tennis Federation (ITF) crowned Chan Yung-jan (詹詠然) of Taiwan one of its world champions as part of the Doubles Team of the Year with Martina Hingis of Switzerland.

Muguruza said: 'Becoming ITF World Champion in such a competitive year is incredible for me.

Chan said she and Hingis had an outstanding season, adding that she is happy to end it with such a great record. She ended the year ranked number two behind Romania's Simona Halep who is still chasing a first grand slam title.

Argentina's Axel Geller and US Whitney Osuigwe were picked as junior champions, while David Wagner of the US, Gustavo Fernandez of Argentina and Japan's Yui Kamiji were chosen as the best in the wheelchair category.
