November 27, 2017 - Two Grand Slam wins apiece propelled tennis superstars Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer back to the top of the year-end rankings while Simona Halep’s consistency across the season secured her the women’s No. 1 spot.

In contrast to the men’s season four different women won the Grand Slams.

Serena Williams triumphed at the Australian Open to win her 23rd major singles title before taking leave to give birth to her first child, Garbine Muguruza secured her second Grand Slam with victory at Wimbledon, while Jelena Ostapenko and Sloane Stephens claimed their maiden Slams with victory at Roland Garros and the U.S. Open respectively.
