SI proclaims Djokovic ‘most dominant athlete in world’

A tragic story about the rebuilding after the Tuscaloosa tornadoes highlights the cover of this week's Sports Illustrated. A bold claim about Novak Djokovic gets the top banner.

The clarification of "right now" is a giant qualifier (though it might have just as much to do with spacing and layout concerns) but still, that's some great American publicity for Djokovic ahead of the French Open. His winning streak is beginning to seep into the public consciousness -- I've seen stories about it on "Pardon The Interruption," CNN and FOX News in the past three days -- and if he goes on a run in Paris, expect the hype to build.

It's going to be a fun fortnight at Roland Garros.
