World Sportsman of the Year!

17.05.2005 | Off Court

Roger's domination of men's tennis in 2004 was honoured with the 2005 Laureus World Sports Award yesterday as sportsman of the year! Roger won three of the four Grand Slams and became No 1 at age 23 last year. For the Laureus Award, he beat out Tour de France winner Lance Armstrong, 2004 recipient and Formula One world champion Michael Schumacher, six-time Olympic gold-medal swimmer Michael Phelps, Olympic 1,500 and 5,000-metre champ Hicham El Guerrouj, and world motorcycling champ Valentino Rossi. It is an enormous honour for Roger and he is overwhelmed to have received the Award. "Now my main ambitions are to win the French Open for the first time and to stay as world number one", he said at the ceremony - in front of 460 million TV spectators worldwide.
