what a coincidence it is that Federer's lead in the rankings above the #2 at the time he broke the all-time record is the same number of titles he's achieved at that very point of his career

Well done Roger

I thought I was such a lucky kid witnessing Pete's genius and then came Roger.

Roger
I was disappointed he played like shit after 2010 AO and fucked up the chance to break the record, never thought he would reclaim world No. 1

Congrats Fed and wishes for continued success



"When I'm asked, how is it to be around Federer, and what is he really like, I always reply, "I wish people could meet him when cameras or an audience aren't around, as he is one of the nicest people I have ever met when stringing on tour. " -- drakulie

Can anyone explain how such a thing is possible?

It isn't.

Drop date for the Basel points is 5/11. Drop date for Bercy and WTF is 12/11, the week after. Reason for both these at the same time is that WTF points always go before next years tournament, as points from last year do not count towards qualification this year.
