Fed stats - with most weeks in top-2, 3, 5 and 10

I thought I'd make a thread for some small stats which are rarely mentioned.


Federer currently, as we all know, hold the record for most weeks as #1. But what about most weeks in top-2, top-3, top-4, top-5 or top-10? I will give these lists here, so we can see if and when he takes any of these records.

Several of the numbers for players active in the 70s and early 80s are estimates as the rankings are not fully documented before 1985.


Most total weeks top-2
1) Roger Federer. 471
2) Rafael Nadal.... 404 (*)
3) Jimmy Connors. 393
4) Ivan Lendl...... 381
5) Pete Sampras.. 376
6) Novak Djokovic. 351
