Feds will never be on the cover.
A few weeks ago after Wimbledon, SI published a letter from a reader asking why Federer and Williams were not on the cover for the issue that covered Wimbly.
Is Agassi the cover picture for this issue- does anyone know? If he is not the main picture, I would not be surprised if there was one of those corner pictures that SI has been keen of as of late. I remember that in 1991 SI had a full cover picture of Jimmy Connors during his run to the semis. (Why do I remember such stuff as that but can’t remember the combination to my gym lock to save my life?)
I do hope that Federer does make the cover someday (although I fear that he will not), but was not expecting it for this USO- this could be AA's last chance (though would love a cover pic of both). I think his greatest hope for making the cover is winning the grand slam or winning 5+ Wimbledons in a row.
