Caroline Wozniacki and Roger Federer won the 2014 International Tennis Writers Association’s Ambassadors of the Year award – the organization’s top annual award – and were presented with the honor during the Australian Open.
Wozniacki received the award for a second time. It is the sixth time Federer has won the award Federer last won it in 2009, while Wozniacki’s previous award was won in 2011.
ITWA represents more than 120 of 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.
Sebastian Fest, co-president of ITWA, said: “Roger and Caroline are both great champions, but they are also superb ambassadors for their sport. Both understand that a good relationship with the media helps them, helps us and helps the sport.
“For many years Roger has given much of his time talking to the media and speaks in three languages at most of his press conferences. Caroline has also given many hours of time to the media, particularly over the last year.”
