Thumbs up Roger wins RG's "Prix Orange", Monfils wins "Prix Bourgeon" ("Prix Citron" - Golovin)

Roger has won the Prix Orange ( For the Player “ we love to love ”. It goes to the player (man or woman), who has shone in the tennis world, The international essence of fairness, kindness; availability and friendliness.) It's his second year in a row





Monfils won the Prix Bourgeon ( The Expert's vote for the player “we will love to love” . Quintessence of Tradition , this price is exclusively awarded by the Specialized Press. It rewards this year's Revelation, and acknowledges today's International Player, the one from whom life and vigour spring out.). Nadal won it last year.

Tatiana Golovin won the Marcelo Rios Award Prix Citron ( For the player “we hate to love” . The International Player with the strongest and sturdiest character…basically the one with a personality enriched with vitamins!)

The Prix Citron should just have been retired in Marcelo's honour when he quit the game I think it's not as bad an award as I thought though as Golovin seems rather happy to get it

I think it's very rare that the winner of "prix citron" actually shows up to this ceremony. I'm rather surprised to see Golovin there...

No wonder she won that award. She's got some character to show up for the ceremony!

they have changed the prix citron, it's the "player with the strongest character" now, it used to be "the player that the press cant stand"

Did she understand what this award means lol She looks so proud...

Roger deserves the prix orange

Pour faire du sport de haut niveau, d'autres mentalités sont plus propices".

Is it just me or do Gael's cornrows look a little shorter. Congrats to the winners- and hee! at Tatiana smiling away.

I like a lot of players.

Golovin took it as a joke, as every player should take.

Kind of like Halle Berry showing up and being a good sport for her Razzy award.

I like Tati - nice to see her not afraid to see the funny side and I hope with the ankle all better she can have an excellent second half to the season.

Then you have Gael all just off the basketball court and Federer looking, as usual, sartorial. I like.

He must be sick of collecting awards right now, though. There's only one award he wants at the moment.

Tom Green was the first to pick up his Razzy.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".
