Honours for 2007

26.03.2008 | Off Court

Roger had the honour of receiving awards for his achievements off and on court with the ATP Tour's Player of the Year award for 2007. He also won the Stefan Edberg Sportsmanship Award for the fourth consecutive year as well as the Fans' Favorite Award for the fifth consecutive time.

 

"I am very happy to receive three more ATP awards for 2007," Roger said. "The Sportsmanship Award is voted by my fellow players and it is a great recognition for me. It is equally important to be voted by the fans as their favorite player. 2007 was a fantastic year for me, finishing No. 1 in the ATP Rankings for the fourth consecutive time and continuing to receive the support of the players and fans worldwide."

 

 

A brief recap of Roger's accomplishments in 2007:

He finished No. 1 for a fourth straight year, highlighted by an ATP-best eight titles (in 12 finals), including three Grand Slam crowns for the third time in four years and at least two ATP Masters Series shields. He became only the fourth player since 1973 to end the year No. 1 at least four consecutive years, joining Pete Sampras (6), Jimmy Connors (5) and John McEnroe (4). He also became the first player in history to reach all four Grand Slam finals in back-to-back years and he advanced to an all-time record 10 consecutive Slam finals. Since the beginning of 2004, he has compiled a match record of 315-24 (.929) and has ranked No. 1 every week since first taking over on Feb. 2, 2004. At Wimbledon, he captured his fifth consecutive title and joined Bjorn Borg as the only players to win at least five straight crowns in the Open Era. He closed out the season with his fourth Tennis Masters Cup title in the last five years.
