Nadal is the tennis player with the most weeks at No. 2 in the world?

Does anyone have this statistic?

Nadal proudly regards this stat as his biggest achievement, especially as it means he's rarely the favourite, no?

Mark Lenders banged your girlfriend, I'm sorry to tell you that mate.

I don't have the exact number, but yes, Nadal has spent the most time at #2 of all time.

Johnston, Lawford, Rosewall, all spent 4 years as #2, no one was ever 5 years at #2 like Nadal.

Nadal has 241 weeks as #2
Becker 136 weeks
McEnroe 130-150 (rankings at the time were uncertain)
Lendl 110-125
Federer 116
Edberg 104
Sampras 90
Agassi 88

Connors...difficult to say, but probably just above 100. Same with Borg.

He only started "owning" Fed in 2008 when he entered his prime. 8-6 before that isn't owning.

Just shows that anyone arguing him as the GOAT is a moron. He has spent almost his whole career in the shadow of another.

Federer, 418 weeks total. Then Lendl ca 409, Sampras 376, Connors ca. 370 and Nadal 343.

For consecutive weeks, Federer, 346 weeks. Then Connors ca 300, Lendl ca 280, Nadal 212.

Being GOAT or not is a question of the number of Slam titles and not of the ranking system.

Monaco - Del Potro - Nadal - Wawrinka - Robredo - Simon - Berdych - Dimitrov - Chardy
