    Roger Federer stands at 19 major titles and counting. Given how well he played at Wimbledon this year, winning the tournament without dropping a set, it's safe to say he's the man to beat wherever he goes.

    Welcome in to Juan's World where the word 'condition' takes on a whole new meaning today. We we're reminded once again that every time the Saints seemingly take one step forward, it won't be long before they're falling two steps back. Nick Fairley's heart condition will keep him out for the 2017-18 season. It's a blow that, up until a couple of months ago, the Saints didn't anticipate having to deal with.

    At number six is cornerback Delvin Breaux. After a breakout 2015 campaign, 2016 was a tough season for Breaux. He only played in six games after breaking his fibula and was never quite right when he returned. A shoulder injury forced him to end the season on IR. But 2017 is a new year and during the offseason, Breaux looked like his old self. He is without question the team's number one cornerback and will be expected to play like it this season.
