to be fair, the only thing I know for sure is that on the ATP website, you can only see the full rankings updated weekly from the 25th of june 1984.

Whether or not it was calculated weekly before that, I'm not sure and I would be glad to know the answer,

but well can the guy who wrote that on Wikipedia be trusted either ? he may also have said that because he only saw Borg number 1 on the 23rd of august 1977 and then he saw nothing written for next weeks ... and then mis-interpreted it as "number 1 for one week" (besides it was just the week before the US Open, if he really had been number 1 only for one week, it would mean that Connors would have played and made a result the week before the US Open). I've seen so many mis-interpretations like that

They did occasionally release rankings two or more weeks in a row, just not regularly.
your post makes me think even more that my interpretation of the "one week" note on wikipedia or tennis-x was just related to a mis-interpretation of what's written on the ATP website as I said.

An easy way to see if they were number 1 only for one week would be to see if there's another player who was actually said as ranked number 1 on the ATP website one week later or if there was just no ranking released.

useless old guy

I did say 1973. Before 1973, there were no computer rankings, so the uncertainty is high, after it, the number of issues per year increased. And here is how from the ITF site:

Quote:
They were not weekly as they are now (except for non issues in the middle Slams or during the events in Miami and Indian Wells) until 1979 with there being the following number of issues in the early years (and not always on a Monday).

1973 - 7 issues
1974 - 11 issues
1975 - 13 issues
1976 - 23 issues
1977 - 34 issues
1978 - 40 issues
1979 - 43 issues
So yeah, Borg got one week because there was a moment when two issues were published one week apart. So did McEnroe. Summer #1 moments were possible due to the fact that the season was intense during the summer, so frequent ATP ranking issues were published then

Roger Federer is so completely awesome in so many ways!

The thing is that Federer fans can say that without being accused of trolling and/or fangirlism since it is a 1000% totally accurate statement. And yet some douchebags will.

Noserer

With him completing the crybaby slam (crying at all 4 slams) this year and this "spartan" record, he's surely going to be mentioned as an all time great player. His slam count may be inflated, but he was still good enough to take advantage. He should send Roddick, Hewitt and many of his other pigeons a lifetime supply of bird feed.

I believe that in this thread celebrating the last great record Federer had to break, reasonable and poised Federer fans have the right to embrace complete Fedtardism.

But only in this thread.

Winning a slam, regaining the #1 rank dethroning prime No2e past 30 yo. True and real Spartan.

Yes, even the Fed haters (can you believe there are some of them out there!) need to tip their hats at this one.

Another irrelevant record. Now we will watch the joy of Fedtards of another QF streak, and most probably R3 streak when he lose before QF. More stupid records yet to come Congratz btw.

Totally obliterates Topspintroll's argument that Roger played in a weak era when he is #1 at 31 in this era. What surpries me is that this guy doesn't get banned fo his blatant hating and trolling.
