Federer: 1 slam win a year, then 2 years of 2 slam wins a year then another 2 years of 3 slam wins a year, will 2008 start the 2 4 slams a year?

Nice chart. Show how Roger has won his slams during a much shorter time span. However, Pete's longevity was impressive, as is his record for most weeks at #1. Roger needs two more years at #1 to beat that record.

Why is longevity considered better than consecutive weeks at #1? I think they are on par. After breaking Steffi's record, he now has the record for consecutive weeks at #1, man or woman. That is equally impressive.

I think you mean # of years ending as at #1?

No way Fed gets 7 consecutive YE #1, 6 YEC. Those are unbreakable.

:lol:

I do share this consentient though. It will be very hard for Fed to get even six YE number ones. I think he'll get five.

Sampras had 10 Slams, not 11, at age 26 after the 1997 US Open.

RFK would have never called him Fed but Ego King

You've got one thing wrong there. Roger had 3 years with 3 slams and only one year with 2 slams. It would certainly be a nice surprise if Roger did win 4 slams in 2008. However, I'd be happy even if he only wins 3 again.

2003 1 slam
2004 3 slams
2005 2 slams
2006 3 slams
2007 3 slams

He did it by age, not by year.

No, I meant total weeks at #1. I don't think that it really matters too much who's number one at the end of the year. That's just a random time of the year to do the numbers - might as well have chosen august 16th to do those numbers and it would turn out differently. For instance, on the WTA tour Hingis have spend far more weeks at #1 than Davenport, but Davenport have ended the year as #1 more times than Hingis. Total weeks at #1 is the best measure of dominance here.

What is this deal with calling me RFK? That retard is nowhere in my league of 'tardism.
