Roger was awarded the "Michael-Westphal-Award" by the German "tennis magazin" at the "Gerry Weber Open" in Halle yesterday. It is given to personalities who have made a special effort for tennis within the last 12 months. It is the second time after 2003 that Roger has received the award. A top-class jury including tennis celebrities such as Steffi Graf, Boris Becker and Michael Stich had nominated five candidates. It was then up to the readers of the magazine to decide - with 48% of the votes going to Roger. Tommy Haas came second with 21%, followed by Maria Sharapowa with 15%. Thomas Kosinski, chief editor of "tennis magazin", said: "the readers did not only honour his success on court but also his social engagement for school children in South Africa."
