Academy Athlete of the Year 2006

01.12.2006 | Tennis

As you know Roger won the award of the United States Sports Academy Athlete of the Year in 2005. He was presented the medal on center court at the NASDAQ 100 Open in Miami in March this year.

Well, Roger will again appear on the ballot for the Academy Athlete of the Year presented by USATODAY.com and MSNBC.com. The vote begins today and runs until December 25.


The Academy Athlete of the Year ballot is the culmination of the Academy’s yearlong Athlete of the Month program, which recognizes the accomplishments of men and women in any sport around the globe. The Academy’s Athlete of the Month is selected by an international voting committee comprised of former athletes, media, sports organizations and governing bodies.


Next to Roger, the 2006 male ballot includes South Korean speed skater Hyun-Soo Ahn, Ethiopian runner Kenenisa Bekele, Italian soccer star Fabio Cannavaro, American NASCAR champion Jimmie Johnson, American golfer Phil Mickelson, American swimming star Michael Phelps, Major League Baseball All Star Albert Pujols, Heisman Trophy candidate Troy Smith, American basketball player Dwyane Wade, American golfer Tiger Woods and American football player Vince Young.



Help Roger take home the award for the second time by placing your vote!

Thank the RF web designer who put up the voting link here. Of course, I voted for Roger! Roger not only brought great joy and excitement to people's lives, he also changed the way men play tennis. The game has become an all-round tennis, ballet and chess

Hi Roger,
I voted for you as you are such an amazing athlete. I've been watching the Wimbledon reviews on DVD, also a DVD of your game with Pete Sampras. I have the DVD Facing Federer as well. I hope you have more of your outstanding games put out on DVD

What an honor for the other athletes to be placed next to you as athlete of the year. We all know that you are not only the best athlete, but the greatest ambassador for all athletes.
