  • Henry Aaron is about to be displaced from his spot atop the alltime home run list, but 755 will endure as one of baseball's magical numbers, a lasting monument to an underappreciated star and to the courage and integrity with which the Hammer attained his crown

  • It's after midnight on the East Coast: Do you know where baseball's best closer is? J.J. Putz is in Seattle, saving games with near-historic efficiency

Q & A Enrique Iglesias

Anna Kournikova's boyfriend has a new album, Insomniac

SI: Is there a sport you can beat Anna at?

This is an article from the July 23, 2007 issue

Iglesias: Anything except tennis and wrestling. Her reflexes are disturbingly good. You throw anything at her, and she catches it.

SI: Before you started going out with Anna, did you follow tennis?

Iglesias: I did, but now I can analyze it a bit. I like watching women's tennis more than men's, though watching Roger Federer is like watching something perfect.

SI: Can you play?

Iglesias: I'm not good. Anna and I have not played much, maybe once. Just to get some exercise, I should do it more often.

SI: What have you learned about athletes that you didn't know before you started dating one?

Iglesias: I respect athletes 1,000 times more now. In music you can start whenever, 18 or 19 years old. If you want to be an athlete, you have to start when you are four or five. There is so much dedication.
