After a nice long weekend of babies, dads, and a much quieter weekend sports-wise, I got to thinking about the sports that I admittedly do not pay as much attention to. With the French Open fresh on everyone’s mind and US Open in full (flooded and delayed) swing (update: Tiger unfortunately went down and Lucas Glover won it all), I decided to put a post up to the masses. Let’s review, shall we?
Roger Federer. Just for a TIP of the iceberg, the man has just won the 2009 French Open, giving him the missing piece of the Men’s Singles Career Grand Slam pie and a total of 14 Grand Slam wins (tied for the record of total Grand Slam wins with Pete Sampras). 5 consecutive Wimbledon wins, 5 consecutive US Open wins, and three Australian Open wins (which in 2007 he did so without dropping a set) join his recent French Open win for the total. Quickly climbing to be considered the best of all time by some. His total career singles record is 650-155 (near 81% wins) and he JUST won his first round at Wimbledon against Yen-hsun Lu of Taiwan.
He does clean up nice….
And of course he looks good shirtless. Like I wouldn’t include that.
Tiger Woods. Formally Eldrick Tont Woods. Has won 14 professional major golf championships and 67 PGA Tour events, 2nd and 3rd of all time respectively. This includes 4 Masters and 3 US Opens. Not only is he considered one of the best golfers of all time by some, he is also the highest earning pro golfer. He spent the most consecutive weeks ranked as the Number One Pro Golfer (264) and holds the record for most total weeks at the top (552). Minus 2004′s winner Vijay Singh, Tiger has been the years end number one ranked pro golfer for ten years straight (1998-2003, 2005-2008). Regardless of his loss earlier today, he’s still amazing overall. Obviously.
The ever-so-familiar Tiger-scrunched-face-while-driving shot.
Yes I had to include him shirtless too. It’s only fair.
So which one do you think is better and why?
