Roger is in the Floridian city to take part in the Miami Open, fresh off his 20th Grand Slam win at January’s Australian Open, retaining the title he won in 2017.
The Swiss star blew away his critics with his victory in 2017, having come back from an knee injury with his world ranking slipping to number 17, the lowest it had been in more than 15 years.
However, Federer and fellow comeback king Rafael Nadal fought their way through to the final in an epic rematch of their 2009 Australian Open final, which Nadal won.
In a five set thriller it was Federer who came out triumphant, winning 6-4, 3-6, 6-1, 3-6, 6-3, with the star breaking down in tears when his victory was confirmed.
It was Federer’s first major title win since his 2012 Wimbledon victory over Andy Murray and his first victory over Nadal in a Grand Slam since Wimbledon 2007.
He would go on to win his record eighth Wimbledon title that year, making it to the final without dropping a set, and trouncing Marin Cilic.
His career renaissance was cemented in February when a victory in the Rotterdam Open returned him to Number One in the ATP rankings, becoming the oldest world Number One by more than three years.
Federer collected the Laureus awards for Sportsman of the Year and Comeback of the Year to acknowledge his return to form in 2017 following a serious knee injury and six months out.
Speaking of his comeback, he said he had never stopped believing in himself.
Can I still win? As long as I believe truly I can still win then I believe it’s worth it to comeback. That’s the feeling I had. I never let that negativity get to me,’ he said.
‘It’s been wonderful not to prove people wrong but to prove myself right.
‘We did have a plan, we believed we could beat the best, win one more Slam, whatever it was.
‘That’s what makes me so incredibly proud and happy now to win these two awards.
