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.

stand by...

I'm afraid football is more popular than tennis among the people, and this year we managed to qualify for the World Cup in (your country) South Africa! Goal keeper Diego Benaglio cood be a hard concurrent, but maybe it's enough to choose th
