Re: There is no finish line...
Federer's approaching another record here:
He's just 8 weeks shy of Sampras's record number of weeks at 1,2 and 3.
73 + 91 + 285 = 441 total weeks Federer
81 + 90 + 286 = 449 total weeks Sampras
270 + 60 + 68 = 398 total weeks Lendl
72 + 104 + 166= 342 total weeks Edberg
227 + 102 + ? = 329 total weeks Nadal
268 + ? + ? = 268 total weeks Connors
He would reach it before Rome, assuming he maintains his ranking. Fed has clinched number 3 for another three weeks, bringing him just 5 shy of Sampras.
A win vs Nadal, will put him out of reach until April 23rd, putting him just 3 weeks shy of Sampras's record.
