Re: Fed: strongest ranking in history?

I have no idea. I'm an 04 and beyond guy.

I don't see anyone giving Federer problems this year though, so I'd say his ranking points are certain to climb in a positive gain for the year of 2005.

Re: Fed: strongest ranking in history?

I don't think so.

I think Hewitt, Agassi and Sampras had higher ranking points.

Re: Fed: strongest ranking in history?

I think Federer has had the highest since the ranking was introduced.

Agassi 1999 5048 he highest ever he won two grand slam that year

Hewitt 2001 4365 i think it was a little higher in 2002 but not by much maybe about 100 point more

sampras 1995 4842 1996 4865 1997 4547 1998 3915

these are all year end

I stand corrected.

Re: Fed: strongest ranking in history?

From stevegtennis.com, after Rogi's US Open win:

6760!
That is Roger Federer's new point total. Without a doubt, the highest point total ever. Federer made it three grand slam victories in one year, taking the US Open with ease over Lleyton Hewitt in the final. Federer now opens up a cavernous lead over last year's champion Andy Roddick at #2. With his finals appearance, Hewitt rises 2 spots to take #3. Tim Henman, who reached the semifinals, losing to Federer, also picks up 2 spots and falls in at #4. Joachim Johansson announces his presence as a top player, reaching his first grand slam semifinal and rising 14 spots to #16. Tommy Haas also had a good run at this year's US Open and rises 13 spots to #32.

17 (yes, yes, yes!) Slams! And counting....

Re: Fed: strongest ranking in history?

At October 4th, after his Bangkok victory, Federer had the highest entry rank points total of his career. So far? An unprecedented 6875 points.

Safin winner: Aopen 08 Gasquet winner: USopen 08, Aopen 09, RG: 10
Nadal winner: RG 07 Monfils winner: USopen 10
Guga winner: RG 2010
Roddick and Hewitt together winner of: 3 sidney, 4 Adelaide, 3 washington, 3 san jose, 3 indianapolis, 2 houston, 2 memphis, 5 queens and one master series title (where Safin, Agassi, Federer and Nadal happens to all be injured).
