Outstanding personality

04.11.2005 | Off Court

The awards for the ‚Men of the Year 2005’ were given in several categories at a major gala in Munich yesterday evening. Roger was amongst the nominees as an athlete.


It was another successful evening for Roger – as he received the award in the category ‘international’, even competing with Pope Benedikt XVI. “That is almost absurd”, Roger said. “Roger Federer and the Pope – I’d say you cannot quite compare the two, he’s a lot more important than me”, he straightened out. Receiving the award from the hands of Boris Becker who called him “the most congenial person I know” certainly was special for Roger.


It had been the seventh time that the readers of ‘GQ’ magazine chose their ‘Men of the Year’ together with a prominent jury. The further winners are: Jürgen Klinsmann (Coach), Actor Til Schweiger (Film), his colleague Sebastian Koch (TV), Herbert Hainer (Economy), the band Fettes Brot (Music), the actor Matthias Schweighöfer (Newcomer) and head of the fashion label Diesel, Renzo Rosso (Fashion).

Congrats Roger! You've proven that you can be number 1 in tennis and also be a truly nice person. In very sense of the word.
My hat off to you. Hoping that your reign be long and fruitful.
