Will Nadal or Djokovic reach 200+ weeks as no.1 in their careers?

What do you think? Will any of the mentioned duo do it? More, will any of them ever endanger Roger's ongoing record?

Q. Do you think you would have been able to play as well as you played today, or you think you would have pulled out from the game if it wasn't the Masters Cup final?

ROGER FEDERER: No, Roger Federer doesn't pull out. Otherwise he doesn't walk on court (smiling).

LOL. No. They will have a shot at being a number 1 for the next 2 years, and then adios amigos.

Proud supporter of El Tio , the greatest genius alive!

Movie-makers transform dreams into reality. Yeah, whatever...
El Tio transforms Dull into a multiple GS champion! Daaaaamn!

El Tio has the keys to weather, court speed, draw making, umpires' decisions and perception of time between points, top players' fatherhood, and my libido!

This signature is in no way ironic. Please don't ever let El Tio think that, for my sake!

Re: Will Nadal or Djokovic reach 200+ weeks as no.1 in their careers?

IMO they will end up with a similar amount of weeks, but I really doubt either will get over 200. But honestly, wrong time to ask. We don't know that what has transpired the past month or so is a sign of things to come or just an anomoly. This will be a much better question after the US Open is over. There we will be able to see if Rafa is truly struggling off clay and if Djokovic has somewhat reverted back to his old self because this certainly isn't 2011 Novak.

Federer / Haas / Safin / Gaudio / Kuerten / Youzhny / Nadal / Gonzalez / Ljubicic / Hewitt / Soderling / Wawrinka / Coria / Nalbandian / Kohlschreiber

The USO 2012 will answer a lot of these questions. My guess is the they will cancel each other out with Nole sweeping the hard court slams and Rafa doing the same on natural surfaces (though we do need to do something about this Rosol guy...).

Nole is ok- but I think no.

Re: Will Nadal or Djokovic reach 200+ weeks as no.1 in their careers?

For Nadal, I think the ship has sailed. He looks to me to be declining. Even if not, it would be a surprise if he managed as many weeks post-26 as pre-26. Can't remember any significant #1 doing that except Agassi and his excuse was unusual and his total was lower.

Djokovic would also have to amass at least as many weeks post-26 as pre-26, so it looks unlikely. But if I was told one of them was going to do it my money would be on him.

Well, they are still young, and I don't see anyone currently able to challenge them from the new generation, so who knows?

Maybe one of them will do it.

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

Looking at the younger generation, it maybe easier than people thought. IMO, one will eventually reach and one 'll be close.
