TBH, Nastase was helped a lot in having a longer stretch by the fact that ATP was releasing a new Rankings much rarer than today. Although, he could have had only 8 weeks like Newcombe, so it's still a bit of an achievement.

That is true. Wilander is actually the one who has topped the most different ranking lists in only one stretch.

Djokovic' comeback will one again vault Nastase into first among those with one stretch only. He's lost that distinction many times but always regained it.

Federer being so dominant helps Nadal's numbers in this case. If he'd had less of a stranglehold on the #1 ranking then Nadal might have stolen it a few times in '05-'07. Even though he'd have more weeks at #1 it would be over 3,4,5+ stretches so his "efficiency" would fall.

That is of course true, but he was never close to it. Federer had a really commanding lead throughout. His lead was never below 1500 points, which today corresponds to 3000 points - a Slam and a Masters. If there should have been back-and-forth then 2008-10 would have been the time for it.

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

Here is a different version in which only the computer releases are counted.

Efficiency of number 1 ranked players by release list count:

1. Roger Federer: 301/3 = 101.33
2. Rafael Nadal: 100/2 = 50
3. Lleyton Hewitt: 80/2 = 40
4. Ivan Lendl: 218/8 = 27.25
5. Pete Sampras: 286/11 = 26
6. Novak Djokovic: 47/2 = 23.5
7. Andre Agassi: 101/6 = 16.83
8. Mats Wilander: 16/1 = 16
9. Jim Courier: 58/4 = 14.5
10. Stefan Edberg: 72/5 = 14.4
11. Gustavo Kuerten: 43/3 = 14.33
12. Andy Roddick: 13/1 = 13
13. Ilie Nastase: 10/1 = 10
14. Juan Carlos Ferrero: 8/1 = 8
15. John McEnroe: 92/14 = 6.57
16. Boris Becker: 12/2 = 6
17. Yevgeny Kafelnikov: 6/1 = 6
18. Jimmy Connors: 46/9 = 5.11
19. Bjorn Borg: 29/6 = 4.83
20. Marat Safin: 9/3 = 3
21. Thomas Muster: 6/2 = 3
22. Marcelo Rios: 6/2 = 3
23. Carlos Moya: 2/1 = 2
24. John Newcombe: 1/1 = 1
25. Patrick Rafter: 1/1 = 1

Observe how it was all weekly between 1985 and 2010 and that leads to an identical part to the one before, and the difference in the display of players ranked #1 between 1973 and 1985 and starting with 2011.

I agree it is a great post, but I disagree a high score in this statistic is an argument for greatness, (neither is it an argument against greatness).

Because if Federer had performed worse after 2008 and never regained #1 for a second and third streak, his score in this list would be much higher (237).

I support Federer, Murray, Karlovic, Nishikori and some others.
11 < 1922 < 4175 < 6132
A weak era is an era that becomes stronger when you remove the strongest players.

It's a measure of efficiency as Number 1. It actually measures how much a player can hold his number 1 position when getting it.

1. It is a mark of greatness from a certain point of view. It shows the player's domination power. See how some former number 1 players had many streaks one week long, and nowadays they have less streaks many weeks long. That means their advantage to the competition is higher, their domination power increased. It's either be efficient or not. If you get the number 1 position, hold it. If you can't hold it, don't get it. It's like capture the flag.

2. From another point of view, the ATP has kept increasing the points gained in majors against points gained in minor tournaments, so the players that win majors will always dominate other players, making fluke number 1 streaks (a few weeks long) closer to less likely. This point of view also goes in my book.

Has there ever been a rerun of ranking numbers that uses a consistent standard from beginning to end? For example granting the same number of points for a major from beginning to end. This may be impossible to create but maybe someone has done it anyway?

(for the year 2000 it's maybe not fully representative, esp. in the beginning of the year, because it was the first year with a new ranking system, there are always transition concerns in such cases and Agassi looks a little bit low to me)

Yes, this is the correct date, it is also the date duong refers to - "After Paris". Paris is played 29/10 - 4/11.

another record...

8th day of July 2012: 7-time Wimbledon champion!

Once upon a time there was a myth about strong and weak eras. On this glorious day the clownery was eventually unmasked: 30 y.o. past-prime daddy Fed became #1 once again in the supposed strong "Spartan" era with his rivals at their peak.
And they all lived happily ever after.
Long live King Federer!


17 Grand Slam titles
7 Wimbledon titles
302 weeks at #1
Legend
