8 Comments for Roger Federer Sets No. 1 Records [Charts]

Rennie Says:

When he won the Australian Open at 36 years of age last month, he was as old as the 1989 French Open singles champions – Michael Chang and Arantza Sรกnchez-Vicario (both 17) – combined. Insane.

skeezer Says:

Novak has an outside chance of catching Roger(Note; Novak is 30, very soon 31 in May), but he will not catch Feds consecutive weeks @#1(237). That record will be out of reach for the near and far future. That said, Feds record of weeks @ #1 will probably stand for very long time. No one in this era, which was suppose to be a strong era(for some who say), will get close to within reach of this all time record. Magnificent.

Weeks @1 top 4

1. Switzerland Roger Federer 303

5. Serbia Novak Djokovic 223

7. Spain Rafael Nadal 167

14. United Kingdom Andy Murray 41

Markus Says:

As a Federer fan, let me enjoy his latest accomplishment for its sheer immensity. I donโ€™t want to sully it by worrying whether anybody else would catch up. If somebody does catch up, so be it. I will applaud him just as well. Great achievements are praiseworthy per se regardless of your personal regard to that person. But for now, Federer is.

@skeez: when all is said and done, Novak may need 2+ years at #1 to surpass Fed. Not impossible, as you say, but a tall order for sure!

StarvingActor Says:

Amazing margins by which he breaks them records. Super pleased for him!

Amit Says:

No matter what situation, RF can be #1 regardless!!!๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿ™ŒโœŒโœŒโœŒ

Daniel Says:

Now go on and win Rotterdam! The way he played last 2 sets, Seppi doesn’t stand a chance and neither Dimi or revenge on Goffin in finals.

If he wins Rotterdam removing his Dubai points he will be 10060 pts to Nadal 9460 (already removing his Rup in Acapulco last year). So Nadal won’t be able to catch him before IW even if he wins Acapulco.

If Nadal loses early in Acapulco, he will have a another shot in IW where Fed will have to reach finals at least to retain his rankings.

Winning Rotterdam and he is guarantee 4 more weeks at #1, at least till IW ends.

Daniel Says:

To me if he wins next 2 machos easy, he should play Dubai as well. oxidize his form, he seems rested and playing freely.

But, he nows his body better and may save himself for IW/Miami where with a few players still lingering he will have another shot.
