Which was the most exciting and significant Major of 2017?- View: 1472 by Lorenzo Ciotti
Among the men, four Grand Slams had two big protagonists in 2017: Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal. As far as women's tennis was concerned, after the win of Serena Williams in Melbourne, there were three surprises: Jelena Ostapenko in Paris, Garbine Muguruza in London and Sloane Stephens in New York.
The Australian Open turned the Swiss and Spaniard into protagonists again. Same for the Williams sisters. Great matches, which were fun for the fans and that brought super success, with two vintage and wonderful finals. The French Open was one of the worst Slam editions of all time.There were preditcable results in men's singles, few spectacular matches, and the autumn weather and bad organization spoiled the party.
Nadal and Ostapenko, however, reached the top level. Federer's victory at Wimbledon, with records of titles won on the lawns of the All England Club, clarified once and for all that the Championships is the most fascinating and beautiful tournament in the world.
Probably we saw the best level of tennis in the whole season. The US Open had a draw with few stars, and featured matches that were not spectacular, but ones with a few surprises. The best match? Sloane Stephens' win in the final, who for some time, allowed the crowd, media and fans to forget about Serena Williams.
