For The Person Who Has Everything

When Roger Federer won his first Wimbledon title in 2003, he was presented with a gift during his next tournament, which was the Swiss Open. A customary act, except that his gift was an 800 kilogram Swiss milking cow, whom he named Juliette. The following year after winning Wimbledon again he returned to the Swiss Open and they were off the hook in terms of finding a gift, as Juliette had calved, so now two bovines were Federer's. In fact, one Guardian journalist commenting on the tennis star's growing herd said, " Perhaps he should name the progeny after the beaten finalists - 'there's Philippoussis and Roddick and Roddick II and Nadal and Gasquet.' And when they die, having beaten them he can take his time over eating them."

But the question remains...what on earth are they going to get him if he wins the title again this afternoon?

A Bull.

Then he never has to win it again, but can still have at least a new cow every year.

Yes, the gift that keeps on giving.
