The AP alludes to why: "By reaching the June 10 [French Open] final,
Federer would play in his eighth major title match in a row, something
no man has done. Not Laver. Not Pete Sampras. Not Bjorn Borg. No one."
Even then, Federer -- who is only 25 -- has already won 10 majors
placing him number three on the list of male tennis players with most
singles major championship wins, right above Agassi and quickly
closing in on Sampras. Whether you like tennis or not, behold the most
dominate athlete alive. He's leagues better than Tiger or anyone else
for that matter and may prove to be the best player in history.
