Re: Third time Fed beat a world number 1

Fed spent most of the time at #1 that it's impossible for him to have many matches with #1 unless of course you count those he beats himself or wins himself.

Oh, oh, someone over here actually thinking logically...

Re: Third time Fed beat a world number 1

Interesting stat. Since Federer has been number one for like five years, it's expected that we'll see few instances...

Re: Third time Fed beat a world number 1

Fed has got a good chance of improving this record this year, but I'm afraid with a couple wins he could soon assume the #1 ranking one more time..

Re: Third time Fed beat a world number 1

habiko - I would not be fearful of Federer regaining the #1 ranking any time soon. Rafa has that locked down on good authority.

Re: Third time Fed beat a world number 1

not really, an unexpected upset in RG and with Fed regaining his Wimbledon crown, the landscape could change really fast, nothing is written in stone.
