One-man highlight reel has won two Slams, on two different surfaces, by age 20.—Joel Drucker
Dethroning Djokovic for the Wimbledon title would probably be enough to earn this spot, but he bagged five more titles to boot.—Jon Levey
He didn’t take off after his signature triumph at Wimbledon, but the chasm between the Top 2 and the rest of the tour hasn’t felt this vast since the early days of Roger and Rafa.—Ed McGrogan
He lit up the game, gave it a whole new future, and won one of the most exciting tennis matches in history, in the Wimbledon final.—Steve Tignor
