ITF World Champions Dinner

04.06.2010 | Off Court

Earlier this week, Roger attended the ITF World Champions Dinner at the Pavillon dArmenonville in Paris, despite his elimination in Roland Garros. He appeared in an elegant smoking in the middle of dinner and was treated to a standing ovation by the 400 guests present, thrilled to see our champ.

 

"I remember coming here in 1999 to receive the trophy as Junior World Champion. I was playing a tournament in Croatia at the time and had to take a bus and the metro in order to collect my prize... Today I just had to be here. It's an honour. And I also wanted to express my respect to Gustavo Kuerten." Gustavo Kuerten was presented the Philippe Chatrier Award as three-time Roland Garros champion.

Try to play like Rafael on clay like watching method he play on video, analyze match statistics, get advice from experts or others and you can win any tour on clay.
