I know we still want to enjoy this moment after Roger's win in Hamburg, but Roger goes to Portugal tomorrow for this years Laureus World Sports Award Ceremony. Just a reminder,, Roger is nominated for the Best Sportsman of the Year among Lance Armstrong, Hicham El Guerrouj, Michael Phelps, Valentino Rossi, and Michael Schumacher.

I think Roger has a great chance to win this oscar of sports this year, because of his achievement in the year 2004, including 3 slam titles and other many titles.

Thanks stevens!!
Yeah! Nice award, but even if Rogi won't get it, the valu of his achievemant in 2004 doesn't change at all. ( of course I hope he will win it :devil: )

I hope Rogi won't get tired too much because of such busy schedule... :unsure:

I worry about his feet, too. :worship:

You are right, Nocko. It won't change anything for Roger, even though someone else wins it. But I think he deserves this award this year because,

1, Lance and M. Schumacher have won this award a couple of times already, let's give Roger this award, please jury members...

2, El Guerrouj won two big races in Athens, but Roger won 3 big ones.

3, Michael Phelps won many golds in Athens, but afterwords he was arrested because of drunk and drive (you can drink legally with 21 years old or older in the States. He is still under 20) and overspeading.

4, and Rossi,,,, MMMmmmm, he was as great as Roger last year..... I think,,, but still I have a feeling Roger still has the edge... :rolleyes:

Not sure, but I guess so. What I think great of Rossi, is he won the MotoGP in 2003 with Honda, whose engine is considered to be the fastest, and he changed to Yamaha, considered slower than Honda, and he won MotoGP with Yamaha in 2004 as well...

You analysis makes great sense :D I agree with you. Roger has a good chance to claim the award, very good chance methinks. I hope this award can be given to the most deserving sportsman. And it's time for a TENNIS player at last to claim the title of the best male sportsman of the year.

Wish Roger good luck tomorrow :)

He only has to peak for two weeks while Roger kept his form all year long.

I said above why Roger "deserves" this award, but I think it will be one of these guys, Roger, Lance, Schumacher, and Rossi,

Lance Armstrong (he should change his name to "Legstrong.") won 6 consecutive Tour de France titles, and noone has ever done this.

The last year was one of the most dominant years for Schumacher.

Rossi,, I wrote it in my previous posts.

If one of the other two wins this, It would be a huge surprise for me.....

Unfortuantely, after Lance made his annoucement that this is his last Tour,
I suspect ther will be some emotional capital to give it to the guy again

Federer and Holmes win top Laureus awards
Mon May 16, 2005 8:39 PM BST

By Timothy Collings

ESTORIL, Portugal (Reuters) - World number one tennis player Roger Federer and Britain's double Olympic gold medallist Kelly Holmes won the two top individual prizes at Monday's sixth annual Laureus World Sports Awards ceremony.

Federer, who captured three Grand Slam tournaments in 2004, and Holmes, who won 800 and 1,500 metres gold in Athens, were joined as prize-winners by the European championship-winning Greek soccer team and Chinese Olympic gold medal-winning hurdler Liu Xiang.

There were also awards for Italian racing driver Alessandro Zanardi, Canadian Paralympics athlete Chantal Petitclerc and record-breaking yachtswoman Ellen MacArthur.

The Boston Red Sox, who last year won baseball's World Series for the first time in 86 years, won a special Spirit of Sport Award.

Greece won the team award, Liu Xiang the newcomer prize, and Zanardi, who lost both legs in a racing accident in 2001, but completed a full touring car season last year, won the comeback of the year award.

Petitclerc, winner of five wheelchair gold medals in Athens last year, who lost both of her legs in an accident when she was 13, won the disabled sportsperson's award.

MacArthur took the alternative sportsperson's award after breaking the world record for a round-the-world solo voyage.

The awards are decided by the Laureus World Sports Academy, a jury of 40 of the greatest sportsmen and sportswomen of all time.

Laureus World Sport Awards
Getty Images
Switzerland’s Roger Federer won the most prestigious award in sport when he was named Laureus World Sportsman of the Year following a brilliant 2004 in which he won three Grand Slam tennis tournaments and established himself as undisputed No.1 in the world, at the age of just 23.

In an Olympic year, Britain’s Kelly Holmes, winner of a celebrated 800 metres and 1,500 metres double gold in Athens, was honoured as Laureus World Sportswoman of the Year, while China’s Liu Xiang, who won the 110 metres hurdles at just 21, was named Laureus World Newcomer of the Year.

There was an emotional reception at the Awards Ceremony, staged at the Casino Estoril in Portugal, for Italy’s Alessandro Zanardi, who won the Laureus World Comeback of the Year Award after courageously returning to the track after a horrific motor racing accident in which he lost both his legs.

The Laureus World Sports Awards has established a unique place in the sporting calendar, honouring the greatest sportsmen and sportswomen from around the world. In the audience at the Awards Ceremony at the Casino Estoril, which is watched by a global TV audience of 460 million, were members of the Laureus World Sports Academy, sports guests and celebrities including His Majesty the King of Spain, Hollywood stars Jackie Chan, Teri Hatcher, Joely Richardson, Marcia Gay Harden, Woody Harrelson and Morgan Freeman, Formula One supremo Bernie Ecclestone, England football coach Sven Goran Eriksson, England football captain David Beckham and his wife Victoria Beckham and former Formula One drivers Jean Alesi and Mika Hakkinen.

The winners are selected by the ultimate sports jury - the 40 members of the Laureus World Sports Academy. Among these legends of sport who were in Estoril were: Boris Becker, Ian Botham, Sergey Bubka, Sebastian Coe, Nadia Comaneci, David Douillet, Emerson Fittipaldi, Sean Fitzpatrick, Tanni Grey-Thompson, Tony Hawk, Miguel Indurain, Michael Johnson, Kip Keino, Franz Klammer, Edwin Moses, Robby Naish, Ilie Nastase, Martina Navratilova, Gary Player, Morné du Plessis, Hugo Porta, Mark Spitz, Daley Thompson and Katarina Witt.

The year 2004 saw Roger Federer (Laureus World Sportsman of the Year) become the dominant force in world tennis. He completed arguably the most spectacular 12 months by a tennis player in the open era, becoming the first man since 1988 to win three out of four Grand Slam events in the same calendar year, winning the Australian Open, Wimbledon and US Open. He also won Wimbledon in 2003, becoming the first Swiss to do so. Now 24, Federer established himself as indisputable World No.1, winning 11 times in 2004, the best performance in almost 20 years.

Laureus World Sports Academy member tennis legend Boris Becker, himself a multi-Grand Slam winner, said: “It was a phenomenal year for Roger Federer. He is not only a skilful player, but he is wonderful to watch. In 2004 he seemed to be able to win the un-winnable points and out-think his opponents. He served up superb, winning tennis throughout the year and at 24 it leaves us all wondering what he can achieve in the future.”

The full list of Award winners is:

Laureus World Sportsman of the Year: Roger Federer Laureus World Sportswoman of the Year: Kelly Holmes Laureus World Team of the Year: Greece Men’s Football Team Laureus World Comeback of the Year: Alessandro Zanardi Laureus World Newcomer of the Year: Liu Xiang Laureus World Sportsperson of the Year with a Disability: Chantal Petitclerc Laureus World Alternative Sportsperson of the Year: Ellen MacArthur

The Laureus Spirit of Sport Award was presented to Boston Red Sox The Laureus Sport for Good Award was presented to Northern Irish boxing coach Gerry Storey

The Laureus World Sports Awards were established in 1999 by Founding Patrons DaimlerChrysler and Richemont, who are represented through their brands Mercedes-Benz and IWC Schaffhausen. The awards honour the achievements of the world's greatest sportsmen and sportswomen on an annual basis, and also contribute to social change through the Laureus Sport for Good Foundation.

Let's hope he keeps it up, continues to enjoy playing tennis and achieves up to his best ability :yeah:

Here's an article to go with it :

Model pro Federer a worthy winner

By Jonathan Overend
BBC Five Live tennis correspondent


When I asked Roger Federer in Houston last year why he spends so much time speaking to the media, his first response was "You guys make me laugh".


Federer at the Laureus awards in Estoril

That was, of course, followed by a careful appreciation of his responsibility (as world number one) to promote the sport.

This was illustrated earlier this season in Melbourne when he was recording an interview for "Sportsweek".

He offered to walk the length of a corridor and back again so the studio could check for the best mobile phone reception.

In Hamburg recently, my radio chat with him was restricted to three questions.

Not ideal but Roger, being Roger, offered three thoughtful responses lasting just under three minutes. Perfect.

In my football interviewing, days you could ask 10 questions and still not get three minutes.

It would normally be "each-game-as-it-comes" nonsense from a gum-chewing player with half an eye on the bar or half a foot on the bus.

But Federer provides a magnificent relief - here is a champion who is genuinely interested in those who show an interest in him.

He may get bored of the "Can you win the French?" question or - even worse - the inconsequential enquiry; "would you beat Sampras?", but he never shows it.

The news conference is a peculiar ritual but Federer is the model professional.

Like the other players, he's contractually obliged to speak after every match but, for this multi-lingual cleverclogs, that means in English, French and Swiss-German.

Chuck him a poser in ancient Greek and he'll probably surprise you with a lucid response.

I mention all this because he's just won "Sportsman of the Year" at the Laureus Awards.

He fully deserves it not just for his outstanding efforts on the tennis court, but also his exemplary attitude off it.

At a time when some tennis officials appear to be taking coverage of their sport for granted, Federer realises his duty to keep it at the forefront of the public conscience - worldwide.

And what a story he is becoming.

27 titles at the age of 23, four of them Grand Slam events, he's already won six this year and, most amazingly of all, he's won the last 19 finals he's played.

That sequence dates back to October 2003.

The last final he lost was at Gstaad in Switzerland in July 2003, the tournament immediately after his debut Wimbledon victory (yes, Juliette the cow and all that).

Jiri Novak doesn't have too many claims to fame but, the way things are going, he'll be regaling friends and family for years about the day he beat Federer in that final.

If he now wins Roland Garros, to complete the set of all four majors, columnists will need to grab for even more super-superlatives and the record books will be re-written.

Federer's trophy cabinet is getting severely clogged by oddly shaped glassware and his earnings are getting silly.

But those feet which dance so fluently around the tennis court remain, in metaphorical terms, firmly on the ground.

That's the most joyful thing about this most deserving winner of the "Sportsman of the Year" accolade.
=========================================

YAY finally they recognized Rogi's outstanding achievements! Even non-Federer fans should be happy with this win because it raises the profile of tennis all round! :) :)

Don't count on that but that really isn't important, is it? ;)

Model pro Federer a worthy winner

By Jonathan Overend
BBC Five Live tennis correspondent


When I asked Roger Federer in Houston last year why he spends so much time speaking to the media, his first response was "You guys make me laugh".


Federer at the Laureus awards in Estoril

That was, of course, followed by a careful appreciation of his responsibility (as world number one) to promote the sport.

This was illustrated earlier this season in Melbourne when he was recording an interview for "Sportsweek".

He offered to walk the length of a corridor and back again so the studio could check for the best mobile phone reception.

In Hamburg recently, my radio chat with him was restricted to three questions.

Not ideal but Roger, being Roger, offered three thoughtful responses lasting just under three minutes. Perfect.

In my football interviewing, days you could ask 10 questions and still not get three minutes.

It would normally be "each-game-as-it-comes" nonsense from a gum-chewing player with half an eye on the bar or half a foot on the bus.

But Federer provides a magnificent relief - here is a champion who is genuinely interested in those who show an interest in him.

He may get bored of the "Can you win the French?" question or - even worse - the inconsequential enquiry; "would you beat Sampras?", but he never shows it.

The news conference is a peculiar ritual but Federer is the model professional.

Like the other players, he's contractually obliged to speak after every match but, for this multi-lingual cleverclogs, that means in English, French and Swiss-German.

Chuck him a poser in ancient Greek and he'll probably surprise you with a lucid response.

I mention all this because he's just won "Sportsman of the Year" at the Laureus Awards.

This is what laureus.com wrote.

http://www.laureus.com/images/3427.jpg

The year 2004 saw Roger Federer become the dominant force in world tennis. He completed arguably the most spectacular 12 months by a tennis player in the open era, becoming the first man since 1988 to win three out of four Grand Slam events in the same calendar year, winning the Australian Open, Wimbledon and the US Open. He also won Wimbledon in 2003, becoming the first Swiss to do so. Now 24, Federer established himself as indisputable World No.1, winning 11 times in 2004, the best performance in almost 20 years, and he is unbeaten in his last 15 finals, a record in the open era.

Federer began the year winning the Australian Open for the first time, defeating Marat Safin in the final. He then defended his Wimbledon crown, using his skills and finesse to overcome Andy Roddick's power game. By winning the Gstaad tournament on clay and the Toronto Masters on hardcourt shortly after the grass of Wimbledon, he completed a rare triple of consecutive tournament victories on three different surfaces. In September, he beat Lleyton Hewitt in straight sets in the most one-sided final in the 120 year history of the US Open and he finished the year taking the Tennis Masters Cup at Houston for the second time in a row.

With a win-loss record of 74-6 and 11 tournament wins, the year 2004 belonged to Federer. What makes it an even more remarkable achievement is that he did it without a coach, relying solely on his fitness trainer Pierre Paganini and physiotherapist Pavel Kovac.

Federer was also nominated in 2004 for the Laureus World Sportsman of the Year Award, but lost out to Michael Schumacher.

silly article... but worked for Roger in Hamburg


Want to win? Wear red
Study shows athletes in red have more success

If winning is everything, British anthropologists have some advice: Wear red.

Their survey of four sports at the 2004 Olympic Games in Athens shows competitors were more likely to win their contests if they wore red uniforms or red body armor.

"Across a range of sports, we find that wearing red is consistently associated with a higher probability of winning," report Russell A. Hill and Robert A. Barton of the University of Durham in England. Their findings are in Thursday's issue of the journal Nature.

Red coloration is associated with aggression in many animals. Often it is sexually selected so that scarlet markings signal male dominance. :rolleyes:

Just think of the red stripes on the scowling face of the male Mandrill, Africa's largest monkey species. But red is not exclusively a male trait. It's the female black widow spider that is venomous and displays a menacing red dot on her abdomen.

Similarly, the color's effect also may subconsciously intimidate opponents in athletic contests, especially when the athletes are equal in skill and strength, the researchers suggest.

In their survey, the anthropologists analyzed the results of four one-on-one contact sports at the summer games: boxing, tae kwon do, Greco-Roman wrestling and freestyle wrestling.

In those events, the athletes were randomly assigned red protective gear and other sportswear.

Athletes wearing red gear won more often in 16 of 21 rounds of competition in all four events.

The effect was the same regardless of weight classes, too: 19 of 29 classes had more red winners, and only four rounds had more blue winners.

The red effect also might come into play in team sports.

The anthropologists made a preliminary analysis of the Euro 2004 international soccer tournament, in which teams wore jerseys of different colors in different matches. They found that five teams scored more goals and won more often when they wore shirts that were predominantly red, as opposed to blue or white jerseys.

Scientists don't precisely known how wearing red might give athletes an advantage. But the color delivers implicit messages of vigor and danger. When people get angry, their faces turn red. It's also a reason why stop signs are red. So are most Ferraris.

A case can perhaps be made that most of the recent winners of U.S. sports championships have at least a touch of red on their uniforms: among pro teams, the Boston Red Sox, New England Patriots, the Detroit Pistons. And in college football, Southern California.

But it's the gracious sport of golf that offers the best example. Tiger Woods wears an iconic red shirt on Sundays, the final day of most tournaments.

Roger wears blue, black (in Masters Series Cup), red, white and wins all the time. In Euro 2004, it was Greeks in blue who won against Portugal in red twice. In terms of soccer, Brazil doesn't wear red, France wears blue, Yeah, Ferrari, it was Ferrari's year last year, but this year Renault in blue has been great. Red Sox??? Congratulations for the first World Series in MORE THAN 80(?) YEARS!!! Yanks in white have more marvelous record. New England Patriots??? What about Green Bay Packers with Vincent Lombardi??

It is not about the color,,, it has to do with the skills the players have got!!!

ATP Insider - For the Week ending May 20, 2005

->> – FEDERER WINS LAUREUS SPORTSMAN OF THE YEAR … On Monday evening in Estoril, ROGER FEDERER was named the Laureus World Sportsman of the Year in front of a star-studded crowd. In front of sport's greatest athletes and some of Hollywood's biggest stars, Federer was named as the top sportsman of 2004, earning the honor over other finalists Lance Armstrong, Michael Schumacher, Michael Phelps, Hicham El Guerrouj and Valentino Rossi. Federer and girlfriend Mirka Vavrinec sat at a table with Cuba Gooding, Jr. and next to was the King Juan Carlos of Spain, and David and Victoria Beckham and Miguel Indurain. “That was the first I spoke with Beckham, he was nice, a gentleman,” Federer said. “The atmosphere was very nice, good dinner. We were a bit tired, we came from Hamburg via Zurich but we stayed up to celebrate my award. It was nice (Boris) Becker was there and (Martina) Navratilova. We had a drink with her afterwards and only went to bed at 4. Then we came to Paris because I wanted to have as much practice as possible on the Centre Court here!” Said Becker of Federer's honor, “He served up superb, winning tennis throughout the year and at 24, it leaves us all wondering what he can achieve in the future.”

Yeah, yeah, he's not a Jude Law. :rolleyes:

He's not a "conventionally" good-looking guy but still cute and sexy, which was what I thought when I saw him on TV for the first time(QF Wimbledon 04. Then his tennis was........ out of this world :angel: )

I think there's something really special about him more than good looks. He got a rare combination of cuteness, elegance AND sexiness.

First, he has the most cuttiest smile... :angel: I just "awwww" whenever he kisses a trophy and smiles sheepishly at the trophy presentation(esp. Wimbledon). On the other hand, when he's watching across the net while waiting for the opponent's serve or ready to his serve, he looks so sharp and smart just like a leopard patiently waiting for a prey(I love his profile or 3/4 shot of his face at that moment :kiss: ). When the point begins, he moves all over the court so gracefully and elegantly. And then, all of sudden, he throws the most ferocious forhand, both feet on the air! Ohhhhh I loooooove it!!!!! SO SEXY!! :drool: :drool: :hearts: :hearts: *faint* And most of all, thank God, he cut his hair! :bowdown:

I know, I know. I'm too obvious :o But I bet I'm not the only one in this forum, am I? (do you hear me, PaulieM? ;) )

Well, I hear you and you are so right! He definitely has sex appeal. He has that certain something you can't put into words (although you said it pretty well, soonha ) :)
It's that something the French call Je ne sais pas.

I have several friends who have never seen him play his beautiful tennis, but have seen his pics on my computer and they all say the same thing...(He's sexy)~

I've always thought the neatest men were not the ones with classic *good looks*.
Just my opinion.

:lol: you know I hear you :drool: the hair is hot, although on court i miss the ponytail a little, although the little hair flick is hot, and when he ties it back with the bandana, a la the poo at wimby 04, YUM! you're totally right about the profile shots too, absolute hotness, amazing! i'm done trying to explain to people why i love this man, he's not conventionally cute, but there's something about him, he's just SEXY!! when he's on court boy oh boy, the attitude, hmm it probably also has something to do with the fact that i know he's about to destroy whoever is on the other side of the net :scratch: that's hot! and as everyone on here knows, i've recently come to have quite an appreciation for his ass... that's hot too! bent over waiting for that ball...mmm... his return of serve is quickly becoming my favorite part of his game :o

it's that je ne sais quoi quality about Rogi...
Rogi's not your run-of-the-mill goodlooking guy, he's much more than merely conventionally cute... he's uniquely handsome and that's what makes him special! ;)
I never go for the usual cute guys... far too boring and predictable.

Completely agree, luna. :worship:

:lol: :lol: Actually, it's also mine :aplot:


Glad to know many of you are with me, ladies :yeah: . Only mature and sophisticated ones, *cough* like us, could realize the true sexiness and beauty of men....... :devil: :devil: :devil:
