European Athlete of the Year

27.12.2009 | Tennis

Roger has been elected European Athlete of the Year 2009, making it his fifth overall title. The election is coordinated by the Polish Press Association (PAP), with a total of 18 news agencies participating.

 

The result was very clear as Roger (135 points) had plenty of room to Formula-1 world champion Jenson Button who came second (81 points). Roger had already been awarded the title during four consecutive years from 2004 until 2007. Rafael Nadal had received the award last year.

 

The further 2009 ranking:  3. Ole Einar Björndalen (NOR/biathlon) 73, 4. Sebastien Loeb (FRA/rallye) 56, 5. Blanka Vlasic (CRO/athletics) 51, 6. Alberto Contador (ESP/cycling) 50, 7. Cristiano Ronaldo (POR/soccer) 42, 8. Pau Gasol (ESP/basketball) 41, 9. Valentino Rossi (ITA/motorcycling) 40, 10. Andreas Thorkildsen (NOR/athletics) 36.
