This was a fun read:
4:33PM EDT October 16. 2012 - Roger Federer is atop the ATP rankings for the 300th week in his career. We try to put that into context.
• Federer's 300 weeks means he's been No. 1 for nearly six years. His top ranking could be in kindergarten now, doubtlessly going up to the teacher and subtly alluding to how good its handwriting is compared to Andy Murray's.
• The next highest active total is Rafael Nadal at 102 weeks.
• In fact, the 300 are more than every other active player combined (300 to 235). Federer's record streak of consecutive weeks at No. 1 (237, snapped by Nadal in 2008) is also higher than that total.
• The only country with more player weeks at No. 1 than Federer's 300 is the United States (six players, 896 weeks).
• Federer first became No. 1 on Feb. 2, 2004. Ronald Reagan, Ray Charles and Marlon Brando were still alive.
• One record Federer doesn't have: He "only" has five year-end No. 1 rankings. Pete Sampras has one more. Federer could tie that mark if he holds off Novak Djokovic over the next three weeks.
• Every Star Wars movie has been in theaters for a combined 233 weeks. And those things are always in theaters.
• Metallica's Black album was on the Soundscan charts for a record 284 weeks.
• Federer still has 77 fewer weeks at No. 1 than Steffi Graf. (And, for that matter, 32 weeks fewer than Martina Navratilova.)
