Sportsman of the Year Award

The Club honors Japanese tennis star Kei Nishikori at a ceremony for his phenomenal achievements in the sport.


Originally from Shimane Prefecture, Nishikori is Japan’s most successful tennis player and was ranked fifth in the world at the end of the 2014 season. That was the year he made it to his first grand slam final at the US Open.

Coached by former pro Michael Chang, the 25-year-old has won 10 ATP singles titles.

The Club established the Sportsman of the Year award in 1989 to honor individuals who have made significant contributions to sport in Japan.

Past honorees include sumo wrestler Konishiki (1991), baseball’s Ichiro Suzuki (1995), swimmer Kosuke Kitajima (2005), golfer Ryo Ishikawa (2011) and Olympic hammer thrower Koji Murofushi (2014).
