2017 is the year Roger Federer will never forget. Coming into the Australian Open with only having played half a season in 2016 due to knee issues, a lot of people had written him off. No one expected him to dominate again, let alone to win a Grand Slam. But Fed being Fed, he defied the odds, demonstrating by winning his 18th Grand Slam in Australia. He beat fellow Swiss and 3-time Grand Slam winner Stan Wawrinka in the semifinals and 14-time Grand Slam champ Rafael Nadal in the finals, resurrecting the 'Big Four.'
