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. 470
2) Rafael Nadal.... 403
3) Ivan Lendl...... 385
4) Jimmy Connors. 382
5) Pete Sampras.. 376
6) John McEnroe... 317
7) Novak Djokovic. 282 (*)
8) Björn Borg..... 269

Most consecutive weeks top-2
1) Roger Federer. 346
2) Jimmy Connors. 300
3) Ivan Lendl...... 280
4) Novak Djokovic.256 (*)
5) Rafael Nadal.... 212
6) Pete Sampras.. 173
7) Björn Borg.... 169


Most total weeks top-3
1) Roger Federer. 600 (*)
2) Jimmy Connors. 594 (unofficial estimate, most likely total. Range is 589-598)
3) Ivan Lendl...... 509 (unofficial estimate)
4) Rafael Nadal.... 460
5) Pete Sampras.. 457
6) Novak Djokovic. 425 (*)
