Federer won his fifth Australian Open and eighth Wimbledon title in 2017, becoming only the second man in the Open Era to win Wimbledon without dropping a set. He has now won a record 19 Grand Slam men’s singles titles and  also won the Sunshine Double - Indian Wells and Miami Masters. His victory in the Swiss Indoors in October was his 95th career title.
ROGER FEDERER - Sportsman Award 2018

 This is a very special moment for me. Everyone knows how highly I value my Laureus Awards, so to win another would have been wonderful, but to win two is a truly unique honour. And so unexpected. I am delighted and I would like to thank the Laureus Academy for all their support. It was an unforgettable year for me, to come back after a very difficult 2016 and these Awards just make it even more memorable.
