We all know that only men are *real* athletes...
Because I'm really happy for Federer and his 15 - yadah yadah yadah - but sorry, kiddo, CNN, ESPN, All England's Club, but...


Federer is not the top Grand Slam winner/greatest player of all time. He's the top male Grand Slam winner of all time. There are five women who have won more Grand Slam Singles title than him and the only person who has ever won a Golden Slam (all 4 Grand Slams and Olympic Gold in the same year) was a woman, Steffi Graf, with 22 Grand Slam Singles Titles.

Just so you know. FYI. You'd think the people who are actually paid to know these things would, you know, know.

Those pesky women, getting in the way of the real athletes's men's records.

He he. It's just so annoying. You'd think that if Federer wanted to be the GOAT, he'd aim a little higher than 15 Grand Slams.
