|Roger Federer has made a name for himself as one of the greatest tennis
players of all time. Since becoming the No. 1 ranked player in the world
on February 2 2004 he has dominated the ATP. Since 2003 Federer has won
an astounding 50-plus Finals- including three Australian Opens five
consecutive Wimbledon titles and four straight U.S. Open titles. His
current streak of over 112-plus consecutive weeks as the ATP No.1 puts
him in company with Jimmy Connors Pete Sampras and Ivan Lendl as the
only players in history to be ranked No. 1 for 100 consecutive weeks.
This product is a reprint of the front page of the 'Sports Monday'
section of the New York Times that ran the morning after Federer won his
third straight 2006 U.S. Open title with a thrilling 6-2 4-6 7-5 6-1
victory over American Andy Roddick.
