2004 Prix Orange Roland-Garros presented to Gustavo Kuerten

There are a few trophies awarded at the Roland-Garros Championships to players who may not have won a title. Since 1981, a series of three trophies, the Prix Orange, Prix Citron, and Prix Bourgeon are given out at the Roland-Garros Championships and awarded to players by various groups for sportsmanship, strength, and improvement, respectively. In 2004, fan favorite Gustavo Kuerten was awarded the Prix Orange for his sportsmanship and pleasant demeanor with journalists at the tournament that year, despite only making it to the quarterfinals.
