Re: Monday 16/7/12 Roger Federer breaks the all time weeks at no. 1 record. CONGRATS
It's a big record in tennis. Congrats, champ.
I remember how Federer came close to breaking this record in 2010 until Nadal went on a tear in the clay season and Federer had a few inexplicable losses, falling one week short of Sampras' record.
In retrospect, this might have been a blessing in disguise as the desire to add two more weeks as world number one might have been just the motivation to give a little bit extra in Paris, Rotterdam, Dubai et al.
How long do you guys reckon Federer will keep the number one spot this time? I guess he'll be reasonable safe until the US Open.
17 (yes, yes, yes!) Slams! And counting....
