Tiger Woods talking to Roger Federer

Roger Federer as a boy holding ball

“He was born in Basel, Switzerland. He started playing tennis at six years old. He could have been a soccer pro but chose tennis. He once had a temper but he found his cool and became a champion. His forehand is feared by all. He’s the only player to win three majors three times. He’s definitely the man to beat. His name is Roger Federer. He’s won ten majors and counting. But my name’s Tiger Woods and I have twelve majors and counting. So keep it up buddy!”

The super: “Just do it!” Make that eleven majors and counting Tiger. Pressure’s on.
