Fed spent most of the time at #1 that it's impossible for him to have many matches with #1 :shrug: unless of course you count those he beats himself or wins himself.

how many former #1 has Roger beaten? Sampras, Agassi, Safin, Hewitt, Roddick, Ferrero, Moya, Kuerten... :o :p

Interesting stat. Since Federer has been number one for like five years, it's expected that we'll see few instances...

Fed has got a good chance of improving this record this year, but I'm afraid with a couple wins he could soon assume the #1 ranking one more time.. :o

habiko - I would not be fearful of Federer regaining the #1 ranking any time soon. Rafa has that locked down on good authority.

not really, an unexpected upset in RG and with Fed regaining his Wimbledon crown, the landscape could change really fast, nothing is written in stone.

Every #1 that Federer has beaten Safin has also beaten.

So what does that tells us about 1.Federer 2.Safin

Does that mean they're equally good players or is that list simply an interesting list?

It most of all tells that Fed and Marat played during the same era I think. :cool:

I respect you.
A spaniard respecting federer and being a fan is quite rare, and nice to see.

Federer is a very respected player in Spain, too.
There are quite a few more around over here. Not all Spanish fans are Nationalism Tards... ;)

I've been a Roger fan for quite a while, then my darling Rafa came and now they both share my heart :inlove:

it's quite a pleasure seeing such two different styles of play, almost the opposite of each other winning everything, I just can't help but love both of them

I will always support my boys (with exceptions like Robredo on tennis or Alonso on F1 :o ) but if there are better sportsmen that beat them, so be it, I'm not THAT much of a Spain-tard :lol:

Only 3-4 against active world #1s. This Federer is overrated. :p
