Champion of Champions

02.01.2008 | Off Court

Great news to start the new year with - Roger has won the 'Champion of Champions' award by the French newspaper 'L'Equipe'. He cumulated almost twice as many votes (854) as second-placed US swimmer Michael Phelps (447) and is only the second athlete after Michael Schumacher to receive the trophy three years in a row.

 

Roger said: "I have put the priority on longevity. I've always had an eye to the future and would like to continue playing as long as possible to play against as many generations as possible. I am in it for the long run."

 

Looking back over 2007, he said his greatest satisfaction came from matching Bjorn Borg's record of winning Wimbledon five times in a row by defeating Rafael Nadal in a pulsating five-sets final. "It was an incredible match against Nadal - in front of Borg who was there, Connors also and McEnroe - everyone was there. It was a magical moment for me. Of course its bizarre to think of oneself as a legend, but that was the biggest moment of the year for me."

 

Turning to 2008, our star said that winning a first French Open title was near the top of his list of priorities, but he said equalling and possibly passing Pete Sampras' record of 14 Grand Slam titles was even higher.

 

Just follow the link below to see the interview with Roger by l'Equipe.
