Fair-play Roger

09.06.2007 | Off Court

Roger was given the "Prix Orange" at the French Open this week, honoured for exhibiting fair play and being a good sport. It is already the third consecutive year for him to receive the award.

 

Novak Djokovic of Serbia, a 20-year-old who played Rafael Nadal in the semi-finals yesterday, won the "Prix Bourgeon" as the "revelation of the year," while Paul-Henri Mathieu of France was given the "Prix Citron" as "the personality that stands out ... the player with the most zest."

Dear Roger,

Not only a brilliant champion, but also fair-minded and a great sportsman and a charming ambassador for sport. I think when your tennis career is over you should use you fame to do good deeds in the world and I'm sure you would achieve much
