Swiss Athlete of the Year 2012

17.12.2012 | Off Court, Starseite 3

Roger has been elected Swiss Athlete of the Year 2012 at the Credit Suisse Sports Awards gala. It is already the fifth award for Roger after having won it in 2003, 2004, 2006 and 2007. 

"There is nothing more wonderful than receiving standing ovations in Switzerland. I do hope I can continue to spark emotions," Roger said to a thrilled audience. 

It was the first time since 2005 that he was able to personally attend the gala as Switzerland was an ideal stop-over between the Gillette Federer Tour through South America and his next stop Dubai.

Hello Roger,

Congratulations on this very special Christmas present. As René Stauffer allready tweeted on the evening of the gala: this award was long overdue and it should have given to you at least in 2009 as well. I am very happy for you to receive the praise you deserve from you countrymen.
Wishing you a very Merry Christmas and the very best for 2013.
