Federer catches Sampras...and Woods

June 07, 2009

Nike once ran an ad with Tiger Woods providing a voiceover, speaking to Roger Federer's accomplishments. The ad ended this way:

"His name is Roger Federer. He's won 10 majors and counting."


"But my name is Tiger Woods. I have 12 majors and counting. So keep up buddy."

Sunday, Federer caught up, winning the French Open, his 14th major championship to equal Sampras' tennis record. Woods also has won 14 majors.
