Those 237 consecutive weeks were mainly due to his mug era accomplishments and the earlier ATP ranking system that was in place prior to 2009. The current ATP ranking system and the players having to defend the ranking points was introduced in 2009.
You look at it from any perspective, the old man is the luckiest tennis player ever in the history of tennis and had it all very easy throughout while the others with superior talent have to sweat it out to even come close to the numbers the old man has piled up.
Proves how much you know.
I can tell you that if the current ranking system had been in place 1/1-2000 then Federer would have at least as many weeks as #1 as he has now. There were no big changes during the 2009 revision. Wins are rewarded more now, comparatively, but that would certainly not have been disadvantageous for Fed who always had the most tournament wins the past 12 months when he was #1. If you doubt this name the dates when you feel Fed got "extra weeks" due to the then system, and I will translate the ranking points they had then to the current scale.
Seeing as you bring in totally irrelevant arguments that can easily be demonstrated to be incorrect, do you expect anyone to take your other arguments seriously?
