So who bought the #RF287 ?

Bjorn Borg:

French Open W (1974, 1975, 1978, 1979, 1980, 1981)

Wimbledon W (1976, 1977, 1978, 1979, 1980)

No one can do it for three times to ascend to #1.

Surprised no one has posted this? Seems very nice of ATPWorldTour to carry on from their 15 Grand Slam tribute.
I'm actually really impressed with what the ATP have done honouring Fed since the win. 2 classy videos and a nice splash page for the website. It is really great to see. Regardless of your opinion on him, every tennis fan should enjoy the moment.

Not sure if this has been mentioned here, but just found it out and thought this is pretty interesting:

The record for most weeks at #1 in doubles is held by Bob and Mike Bryan at 289 weeks. Considering that the Tennis Olympics finishes on the 5th of August, it gives Federer 2 more weeks at the top. If I did my maths right, it means that if Federer loses the #1 rank to Djokovic in the Olympics and never regains it, the record will be the same amount of weeks in singles and doubles.

While obviously not continuous, Roger Federer has the longest interval between first achieving No.1 and last achieving No. 1.

Sports Illustrated needs to fire their reporter and hire me.

Jimmy Connors had from July 29th 1974 to July 3rd 1983.

8 years 11 months.

Federer's first shot of breaking this record will be reaching Year End number one this year.

Safe to say, if MTF isn't posting that it's a record, chances are it isn't a record.

Re: Monday 16/7/12 Roger Federer breaks the all time weeks at no. 1 record. CONGRATS

He was already the greatest of all time before be achieved this, i and many tennis fans can now just hope this wasn't his last horah.

Juan Martin Del Potro


But he lost 23 times against you.
's right. We have to also throw into the mix. But I do not think it is currently the decisive factor. But he has achieved in my opinion too much. Maybe this is crucial if I move him even closer after major victories. But 14 or 17 Grand Slam titles is a significant difference. At the present time there is no question that he must be the greater player than me.

Another troll trying to get reactions while posting something he himself does not believe in.

"Muger" is just combining "Mug" (as in Mug if the Month) with "Roger". He likes to exaggerate to the maximum possible extent, it seems. But when it becomes simply too much to be believable there is no point in repying.
