Not known to chase numbers, Federer confessed that he had tweaked his schedule to play the Shanghai Masters and keep his No. 1 ranking alive a few more weeks, whereas in other times he might have taken a rest after a long summer.

That allowed him to become the first player to hold the top spot for more than 300 weeks and move well past Sampras' 286 weeks at No. 1 -- a record he had trailed by just one week.
