Can someone clarify for me - shouldn't Federer automatically overtake Sampras' record of 286 weeks? Or does Federer lose points after the end of this week? Surely he has at least 287 weeks locked in?
It's not gonna be automatic, but he will surpass the record next Monday, since Nole is not playing anywhere the next week.
Both Federer and Djokovic are not losing any point for 4 weeks.
