February 27, 2018 -- Monaco
Roger continues to collect awards as he received his 5th and 6th Laureus Awards Tuesday evening in Monaco. The ATP World Tour No. 1 was honored with Sportsman of the Year as well as Comeback of the Year.
These two awards make him the most decorated Laureus Award winner in history.
After taking a large portion of 2016 off from the ATP Tour, Roger came back in 2017 to capture 7 titles which included an Australian Open and Wimbledon as well as 3 ATP World Tour Masters 1000s titles.
"I'm humbled to stand in front of you and receive this award," he said during the ceremony. "The Laureus Foundation does amazing work. I have a foundation of my own and get inspired and motivated by what you do. Maybe one day, I'll be remembered for my philanthropic work rather than my tennis work."
