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 :yeah:

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 :devil: 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... :confused:

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" :lol:

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

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.
