#Tennis: #Federer leads #Nadal in 2017

Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, Australian Open, final, men's singles

#Federer and #Nadal are more than rivals. They’re collegial champions and friends, ambassadors and advertisements for the game. The over-30 idols staged a joint comeback this year, battling tooth, nail and press clips to sweep all four #GrandSlams, and end the year atop the #ATP rankings (Nadal at No. 1, Federer right behind).

  2. Quality titles: Advantage, Federer
  3. Consistency: Advantage, Nadal
  4. Head-to-head against the elite: Advantage, Federer
  5. Impact on the game: Advantage, Federer
