Credit Suisse Sports Awards

11.12.2009 | Off Court

As 2009 is steadily coming to an end, it is time for the most important election in sports in Switzerland: the Credit Suisse Sports Awards ceremony will take place in Basel on the evening of December 12th.


Once again, Roger is among the nominees, facing competition by nine other athletes with a successful year behind them: Diego Benaglio (soccer), Fabian Cancellara (cycling, road), Dario Cologna (Nordic skiing, cross-country), Didier Cuche (Alpine skiing), Didier Défago (Alpine skiing), Daniel Hubmann (orienteering), Carlo Janka (Alpine skiing), Nino Schurter (cycling, mountainbike), Mark Streit (ice hockey).


"I am happy to have been nominated for the Credit Suisse Sports Awards again. I appreciate all the support and I would like to thank all fans for voting for me on Saturday evening", Roger said.


Eventually it is up to the Swiss TV audience to decide which athlete will take home the title (voting is only possible within Switzerland). Roger won the award 2003, 2004, 2006 and 2007 as an individual athlete as well as last year in the team-category together with Stanislas Wawrinka –after their victory at the Olympic Games in Beijing.

Hello Roger,

And a tough competition it was! Besides tennis I also follow the Ski Worldcup on TV, so I knew that you would have a strong competitor in Didier Cuche. Well, with only 1 percent difference this is a very honourable loss to a great athlete.

Well done on your nomination Roger! Not altogether surprising, but still an honour, and I'd have to say I think you'll take this award home too. Your 2009 trophy/awards/records cabinet is surely overflowing!

Was für eine Schande, dass wir Schweizer nach dem MinarettVerbot schon wieder eine Fehlabstimmung hinter uns haben... Didier Couche ist zweifellos ein sehr, sehr guter SkiFahrer. Aber Roger Federer ist einer der weltbekanntesten Sportlern überhaupt auf di
