Isles Streit meets Federer at Open

Fans wandering around Arthur Ashe at the U.S. Open the other nAdd Videoight probably walked right past Islanders All-Star Mark Streit. He didn't care. He was there for the same reason they were - to see Roger Federer. His native Swiss countryman took time from his busy tennis schedule to meet and greet the Islanders sharp-shooter.


"He's a king," Streit told the Islanders PR staff.

Streit has been playing tennis since he was a toddler. He and Federer spoke about the differences between their sports.
