The present is orange for Amelie - but not for Andy

Andy Roddick, the US sixth seed who failed to live up to his reputation with his first-round French Open loss to Armenian Sargis Sargsian, had the consolation of being awarded the 'lemon prize' for his 'strong character' and engaging personality.

The prize used to be handed to the player having the worst relations with the media - with Chilean Marcelo Rios a serial winner on that score.

The orange prize, for the player enjoying the most cordial relations with reporters, went to home favourite Amelie Mauresmo.

Rafael Nadal, Spain's 16-year-old star in the making but absent from Paris through injury, was deemed revelation of the year.
