Re: Most consecutive weeks in top 10

Top 5

1. Jimmy Connors 12 years 07 months
2. Ivan Lendl 10 years 00 months
4. Roger Federer 8 years 05 months
3. Bjorn Borg 8 years 03 months
5. Pete Sampras 7 years 11 months
6. John McEnroe 7 years 06 months
7. Stefan Edberg 7 years 02 months
8. Rafael Nadal 6 years 03 months
9. Novak Djokovic 4 years 02 months
10. Boris Becker 4 years 00 months

This is the correct table. Borg will get through to '83 and I will update the 10 table reflect Borg's extra time.

I strongly caution against using weeks, because rankings were not done every week back in the day and implies a precision which doesn't exist.

Federer - Emperor of the Slams, King of Hard, King of Grass, Lord of the Australian Open, Lord of Wimbledon.
