round-2-match-15

Roger Federer:

  • Has a career singles record of 626-151, including 57 career titles
  • Was ranked Number 1 in the world for a record 237 consecutive weeks.
  • Has won 13 career Grand Slam single titles (3 Australian Opens, 5 Wimbledons, 5 US Opens). Record is 14, held by Pete Sampras.
  • Has won 4 Tennis Masters Cup titles (tournament played at the end of the year involving the top 8 players)
  • 14-time ATP Masters Series title winner, as well as an Olympic gold in doubles (partner was Stanislas Wawrinka)
  • Holds record with 10 consecutive Grand Slam final appearances, as well as winning 65 consecutive times on grass courts.
  • Has been named the Laureus World Sportsman of the Year four consecutive years (’05-’08)
  • Has a really sick logo.

Albert Pujols:

  • Career stats: .334 average, 1531 hits, 319 homers, 977 RBI
  • 7-time All Star (in only 8 seasons), 4-time Silver Slugger, 1-time Gold Glover
  • In his first game at Maple Woods Community College, he hit a grand slam and turned an unassisted triple play
  • Was drafted 402nd in the 1999 draft. 4 out of the top 10 picks in that draft don’t even have a Wiki page. Yikes.
  • In his rookie season, he was selected to the All-Star game (first Cards rookie to do so since ’55). He went on to win NL Rookie of the Year
  • 2-time NL MVP (’05 and ’08), 2-time Sporting News Player of the Year, ’03 Hank Aaron award winner, ’08 Roberto Clemente Award winner
  • World Series champ in 2006, helping to lead his Cardinals to a five game series win against the Tigers. Also won NLCS MVP in ’04
  • Became the fifth youngest player to hit 300 hrs, and was voted the Most Feared Hitter in Baseball in a poll of all 30 big-league managers

I love Pujols, and he was on my fantasy baseball team, but I gotta give this one to Federer. Either way the winner of this matchup is gonna lose to Nadal in the next round, so, yea.
