Re: There is no finish line...

Federer is now certain to be ahead of Sampras for the number of weeks in the top-2 : he's certain to be in the top-2 until after the Canada open at least, which means at least 382 weeks.

Sampras stopped at 376 weeks.

Lendl can be considered quite around the same number although it's not easy to estimate as the rankings were not updated weekly in that time : at most 403 I had estimated in the past.

Nadal is already at 343 weeks

Of course, if Fed wins Wimbledon, he will overtake Sampras for the number of weeks at number 1 and be a number 1 at 31 years old, which seldom happened ... and win one more slam

Now with 32 slam semifinals he holds this record alone, not together with Connors.
