Champion des Champions

01.01.2006 | Off Court

Roger has been named "Champion of Champions" for 2005 by French sports daily L'Equipe.

 

In a vote by l'Equipe journalists Roger received 676 points, placing him well ahead of second placed Valentino Rosso the world motorcycle champion from Italy, receiving 387 points. The third place went to Formula 1 world champion Fernando Alonso of Spain (324 points), the Ethiopian distance runner Kenenisa Bekele coming fourth (250 points).

 

Roger dominated men's tennis in 2005 completing a Wimbledon/US Open double for the second straight year and compiling an 81-4 winning record along the way. He is only the second tennis player to win the L'Equipe award in its 25-year history after Andre Agassi in 1999.

 

"Roger Federer is admirable not only for his successes," L'Equipe commented. "He also is the incarnation of perfection on a tennis court - powerful and at the same time elegant. He is without doubt the leader of a new generation of champions in all sports early in this new century."
