2017 was truly a brilliant year for both, and for Spanish tennis. Last September both Nadal and Muguruza occupied the No. 1 spot, marking the first time countrymen shared that top rank since 2003. Muguruza won Wimbledon, her second major title, while Nadal won his tenth Roland Garros title and his 16th major title at the U.S. Open before finishing the season as the ATP’s year-end No.1 for the fourth time.
