He grabbed “Comeback Player of The Year” award after a splendid 2017. Federer skipped the last half of 2016 after being struck by knee injury. Eventually, he dropped out of top 10 and was 17th seeded player at start of 2017. However, he managed to win 7 titles in 2017 including 2 grand slams, 3 ATP masters and 2 ATP World Tour 500s. Although he missed the entire clay season, but he managed to win Wimbledon, Shanghai Masters and Basel Open after that. He has had a remarkable year when it comes to achievements as well.
Nadal was a close call for “Comeback Player of The Year” as well, however, his comeback, although phenomenal, was not as significant as Federer’s. He was 9th seeded at start of 2017, but ended the year as number 1 seeded player. Roger Federer also had advantage in head to head against Nadal as he managed to win 4-0 in 4 encounters against Nadal this year.
