Federer becomes most decorated Laureus winner
Paris: Roger Federer won his fifth and sixth Laureus statuettes, becoming the most decorated Laureus winner in history at the 2018 awards ceremony in Monaco on Tuesday. Federer, the 2017 Australian Open and Wimbledon winner, claimed the Sportsman of the Year and the Comeback of the Year Awards.“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,” said Federer. “It was an unforgettable year for me, to come back after a very difficult 2016 and these awards just make it even more memorable.” Federer continued his momentum into 2018, as he defended the Australian Open title.
