Stars for Stars

22.03.2005 | Off Court

Roger received three awards on Tuesday night at the inaugural joint ATP and Sony Ericsson WTA Tour awards ceremony in Miami. Tennis’ finest players and tournaments were honoured at Stars for Stars – A Celebration of Tennis Excellence. Roger dominated the ATP awards as he did the 2004 season when he won 11 titles, including three Grand Slams, the Tennis Masters Cup and three ATP Masters Series titles. He was named the 2004 Player of the Year and also won the Fans’ Favorite Award Presented by RICOH, an award selected by fans of ATPtennis.com. Roger was also voted by his fellow players as the Stefan Edberg Sportsman of the Year, an award he received Tuesday from Todd Martin, a two-time winner of the award. Maria Sharapova was the great winner amongst the women, receiving the Sony Ericsson WTA Tour Player of the Year honours - and WTAtour.com users voted her as their Fans’ Favorite. Additionally, Sharapova’s peers and the media voted her the Most Improved Player of 2004. The 17-year-old Russian claimed four titles, including her first career Grand Slam at Wimbledon and the season-ending championships. By the way, Roger is featured on the cover of the new DEUCE magazine, portraying him in a very interesting article.
