Fed stats - with most weeks in top-2, 3, 5 and 10

I thought I'd make a thread for some small stats which are rarely mentioned.


Federer currently, as we all know, hold the record for most weeks as #1. But what about most weeks in top-2, top-3, top-4, top-5 or top-10? I will give these lists here, so we can see if and when he takes any of these records.

Several of the numbers for players active in the 70s and early 80s are estimates as the rankings are not fully documented before 1985.


Most total weeks top-2
1) Roger Federer. 470
2) Rafael Nadal.... 403
3) Ivan Lendl...... 385
4) Jimmy Connors. 382
5) Pete Sampras.. 376
6) John McEnroe... 317
7) Novak Djokovic. 281 (*)
8) Björn Borg..... 269

Most consecutive weeks top-2
1) Roger Federer. 346
2) Jimmy Connors. 300
3) Ivan Lendl...... 280
4) Novak Djokovic.255 (*)
5) Rafael Nadal.... 212
6) Pete Sampras.. 173
7) Björn Borg.... 169


Most total weeks top-3
1) Roger Federer. 599 (*)
2) Jimmy Connors. 594 (unofficial estimate, most likely total. Range is 589-598)
3) Ivan Lendl...... 509 (unofficial estimate)
4) Rafael Nadal.... 460
5) Pete Sampras.. 457
6) Novak Djokovic. 424 (*)
7) John McEnroe.. 372
8) Stefan Edberg.. 342

Most consecutive weeks top-3
1) Ivan Lendl...... 481, 12/7-82 - 15/7-91
2) Roger Federer. 433, 7/7-03 - 10/10-11
3) Pete Sampras.. 391, 18/5-92 - 8/11-99
4) Jimmy Connors. 378, 3/6-74 - 1/9-81 (wikipedia gives 507, 3/6-74 - 20/2-84, but this cannot be correct as Connors was 4th seed at 1981 US Open)
5) John McEnroe.. 363, 18/6-79 - 2/6-86
6) Novak Djokovic.329, 19/10-09 - 1/2-16 (*)

Re: Fed stat trivia

That's really interesting! Surprised he's been them all in the top 25 apart from those two.

Will Federer regain the #1 spot and break Sampras's record for most weeks at the top?

Roger // Rafa // Raonic // Söderling // Goffin // Ivo // Wawrinka // Baker // Delpo

That is true. He won't catch the present #7, Tomas Berdych, who has actually broken Andre Agassis old record for most weeks in this position. Agassi is unique in that he has at least 33 weeks in every top-10 position. This record I don't particularly want Fed to beat....

That would mean a lot more tennis from the big man

Good point. But more important is that Federer takes the records for most weeks in top 2 ,3 5 etc. Top 10 will be hard with 5+ years to go.

I saw a list for most weeks in top-2, top-3, top-5 and top-10 on Wikipedia not long ago, but it has since been removed, for some reason. Does anyone still have it available? Anyway, from memory Ivan Lendl had 403 weeks in the top-2. At the moment Federer is in his 384th week, so if he can manage an additional 20 that will be enough for this record. 20 weeks from now takes us to Jan 14th. This is not only possible, but very probable indeed.

As for top-3 I remember Connors having well over 200 weeks in 3rd position, so that is going to be more difficult. And since Connors also had a lot of weeks as #4 and #5 this is not a record that is going to be broken anytime soon. Something to look forward to, then

Re: Fed stat trivia

Here it is (old revision of the page you mean):

http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?...8since_1973.29

top 3 is `only' 87 weeks to go, i.e. May 2014. Should be doable. Top 5 is 4 years to go, too hard to predict.

Federer missed out on the consecutive top 3 record with his blip to #4 last year. Consecutive top 5 perhaps... 3 years to go.

Re: Fed stat trivia

Thanks a lot, Apophis! I really appreciate it I was unaware of the possibility of finding old revisions. Not that old, by the way, listing #294 weeks as #1....but it only has 124 HC slam wins, so it is not updated as carefully as the new revision.

Re: Fed stats - with most weeks in top-2, top-3, top-5, top-10 (post #1 and #2 update

Yes it is from 25 August. It was reverted because it was updated into the future. I'll restore it in the near future, although it is difficult to find a proper source. With tennis stats on wikipedia we are usually somewhere in between `original research' and `good sources', so usually additions stay until someone feels like deleting it, which is often hard to argue then

Ah good to see you transformed this thread to offer the stats. Are you also adding the consecutive lists?

Re: Fed stats - with most weeks in top-2, top-3, top-5, top-10 (post #1 and #2 update

I have updated post #1 with more than the usual new week. Sampras' consecutive top-5 weeks has been expanded from 408 to 491. His ranking page on ATP gives 7th for week beginning 22/11-99, but this is wrong. He was 5th that week. His series thus stretches into 2001.

For players active in the 70s of early 80s some uncertainty exists, and different sources give different amount of weeks. Alternative (and credible) versions are given in paranthesis.
