2006 ITF World Champion

11.12.2006 | Tennis

Roger has been elected 2006 ITF World Champion. He is only the fourth player to be named Men’s World Champion for three consecutive years, following Björn Borg, Ivan Lendl and Pete Sampras.

 

Roger said: “I am honoured to be ITF World Champion for the third year in a row. It was a great year for me, finishing again as the world No. 1, winning 12 titles including three Grand Slams and reaching my first final at Roland Garros. The ITF Dinner in Paris is always a good evening and will give me another chance to celebrate my successful 2006 with the other World Champions and my friends in the tennis family.”

 

This year, Roger reached all four Grand Slam finals, winning the Australian Open, Wimbledon and US Open. He posted an overall 92-5 win-loss record, and became the first player to earn over $8 million in annual prize money. Roger also helped Switzerland retain its place in the World Group of Davis Cup by BNP Paribas.

ITF President Francesco Ricci Bitti said: “Roger Federer was again the clear choice for ITF World Champion after another extraordinary season. In an extremely close women’s contest, Justine Henin-Hardenne’s overall consistency at the year’s major events saw her emerge as champion.”

 

 

The ITF announced that Justine Hénin-Hardenne (BEL) is the female World Champion and that Bob and Mike Bryan (USA) and Lisa Raymond (USA) and Samantha Stosur (AUS) are the 2006 ITF Doubles World Champions.
