2007 Comeback Player of the Year - Igor Andreev
The 24-year-old Russian came back from a left knee injury in 2006 to finish in the Top 50 for the third time in four years. He underwent left knee surgery on Apr. 28, 2006, missing nearly six months of action. He finished No. 90 in '06 before improving to No. 33 last year. His ranking dipped to a season low No. 235 on Apr. 16, 2007. He helped his native Russia into the Davis Cup final for the second straight year and compiled a 36-27 match record. He advanced to the semifinals in Gstaad and the quarterfinals in seven other tournaments, including Roland Garros where he defeated No. 3 Roddick in the first round. He clinched Davis Cup ties against Chile and Germany by winning the fifth rubbers.
