Sports Illustrated Cover #2 for Federer and another one for Tennis

Sports Illustrated has often been better known for its curious ignoring of accomplished tennis players in particular, and non-American sportsmen in general.

So it is particularly gratifying to see that Fed's 2017 accomplishments have been recognised in his second solo cover.

Congratulations

Re: Sports Illustrated Cover #2 for Federer and another one for Tennis

How do I get a copy? Is it available the next month?

Also want to know how many times have non-American tennis players made it to the SI cover?

That's a more effective cover.

I examined it for a good 30 seconds.

Whereas I just scrolled past the Fed one quickly.

As a non-subscriber I can't give any numbers but I will hazard a guess that the Tennis magazine has had more tennis players on the cover than Sports Illustrated.
