Roger Federer Named ITWA's Player and Ambassador of the Year - Dec-05
Roger Federer picked up the honour form the International Tennis Writers Association (ITWA) for 2005 and the annual Ambassador for Tennis Award. This is the second year in succession that Federer has received both of the organisation's annual accolades.
Roger Federer had a strong showing in the 2005 tennis season wining Wimbledon and the US Open and including the runner-up at the Tennis Masters Cup, finishing the year with a World ranking of number one for the third successive year. The ITWA’s one hundred and four members from seventeen countries voted him as their Player of the Year ahead of Roland Garros champion Rafael Nadal.
Roger Federer also works hard to improve and promote tennis off the court and explains that. “The fans see you out on court and maybe they think ‘He’s a great player’, but I don’t know if they realize how much we are doing off the court in trying to improve the game and the image of the sport, which from my point of view are very, very important”.
