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.

Sorry to hear you did not win this year, Roger.

Somehow I feel you would love it better in 2010!

I see a very telling 2010, indeed, Roger.

Keep working hard and you may yet record your best record ever - including (shhhh...) a calendar slam.

Goooooooooooooooooooooooooood luck!

Dear Roger,
Sorry that you did not win but the % is so little with Didier Cuche. You are still the no. 1 in the hearts of your fans and being nominated again was already something, For us your fans, you did a great thing or things in the year 2009 and he

Hello Roger
Bad luck so near yet so far--never mind no 2 is better than not being there at all! Perhaps 2010 for no 1

The Swiss certainly have some wonderfull skiers-- we have been priviledged with being able to watch many of them on our TV here in Au

Cuche over Federer?

What a joke!

You did wonderful job, we were all so excited, sorry for Roger! Maybe the other guy deserves it more? I am not so familiar with the other swiss athletes. Roger is my favorite no matter he plays!!! I always support him, cheer for hi

Thank you, Monika.

So sorry for Roger. To me it's pretty unfair. But never mind. There will be many more victories in his life.
