King of the court and more

Roger Federer won his fourth straight U.S. Open final in straight sets. He is the first person to do this in 80 years.

He also has a streak of making 10 straight Grand Slam finals. Think about that? He hasn't missed a final in Slam in 2 1/2 years. That is just insane. He has now won 12 Grand Slams - only Pete Sampras sits ahead of him at 14.

Mike Lupica said this morning on ESPN's Sports Reporters that Federer is the greatest tennis player of all-time. Hard to argue the point.

News and notes from the weekend of sports.

Michigan and Notre Dame meet next week with both teams 0-2. Both teams look awful this week. Just a total shame isn't it that one of them is going to be 0-3. Wow.

Tiger Woods won again ... shocker. Have a feeling he is going to open a can of whoop ass on Phil Mickelson this week. Should be a fun weekend in Atlanta.

Great opening Sunday in the NFL with some upsets and a few last second wins. Shame of it is that I have to end the day watching the Giants at Dallas. Hard pressed to think that it will be close - so therefore Marion Barber better get three touchdowns for my fantasy team.
