Rafael Nadal and Kim Clijsters has been selected as the ITWA's 2010 Ambassadors of the Year.
Melbourne, 18 January 2011

Rafael Nadal was presented here today with the International Tennis Writers Association’s top award. The 24-year-old Spaniard was voted one of ITWA’s Ambassadors of the Year for 2010 and received his award, a silver clock, after his first-round victory over Marcos Daniel at the Australian Open.

Kim Clijsters, who is the other winner of the ITWA award, will be presented with her prize, a silver photo frame, after her opening match against Dinara Safina later today.

ITWA represents more than 100 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.

Nadal won three Grand Slam titles last year and became one of only seven players who have won all four of the game’s biggest prizes. He was also one of ITWA’s Ambassadors of the Year for 2008.

Clijsters wins the ITWA award for a third time. Having crowned a remarkable comeback after a two-year break to win the US Open in 2009, the Belgian had another outstanding year in 2010, retaining her New York title and winning the season-ending WTA Championships in Doha.

Sebastian Fest, co-president of ITWA, said: "Kim and Rafa are great champions, but they are also wonderful ambassadors for their sport. We know it is impossible for them to grant every interview request, but they are always very helpful in all their dealings with the media."
