FILE - In this Sept. 15, 2008, file photo, Esther Vergeer of the Netherlands, returns a shot during the wheelchair tennis women's doubles open final at the Beijing 2008 Paralympic Games in Beijing, China. After more than 13 years at No. 1 in the wheelchair tennis rankings and going unbeaten since 2003 with 465 consecutive victories, Vergeer entered the London Paralympics with a solid argument for being the most dominant athlete within a single sport. The 31-year-old Dutchwoman extended that run to 468 matches with a 6-1, 6-0 win against Thailand's Sakhorn Khanthasit in the quarterfinals, Tuesday, Sept. 4, 2012. (AP Photo/Ng Han Guan, File)
