Nadal, Federer and Kvitova honoured in ambassador awards

Melbourne, 16 January 2018 – Petra Kvitova, Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal have been honoured in the International Tennis Writers’ Association’s annual “Ambassador of the Year” Awards.

The awards are usually given to one man and one woman, but ITWA’s 120 members voted overwhelmingly in favour of making the men’s award a joint presentation to Federer and Nadal. 

ITWA represents the world’s leading tennis journalists. Its awards recognise a combination of achievements on the court, conduct that shows tennis in the best possible light and co-operation with the media.

Isabelle Musy, co-President of ITWA, said: “The only other occasion when we have made a joint award was when we recognised the Bryan brothers in 2013. As Roger and Rafa played doubles together at the Laver Cup last year, our members thought this joint award was justified.” READ MORE
