Most weeks as #1 in ST since 2009

I notice in TT they have a list of weeks as #1 in addition to the ordinary rankings. I thought this would be a fun addition here too.

Unfortunately, a search shows that the 2008 numbers are missing. They used to be here, but visual links no longer lead anywhere. At least I couldn't find them. If anyone is more successful, let me know.

These are the standings from 2009 onwards. Be aware that labamba topped week 1 in 2009, without doing anything special that week, and so obviously must have got a few weeks at the end of 2008. I credited his YE#1 from 2008 in parenthesis.

Zenjo 36 1
RoddickFan. 35 1
CoolyBri 33 1

The longest documented stretch in #1 position is Zenjo's 36 weeks.

RoddickFan. has been #1 on seven different occasions.

36 weeks at the top will have to do. :) Hopefully I can make it back there one day.

Great work, Litotes :) I am happy with my position in this standings, but I don't see me going as far as the guys at the top of it, they were beasts on their time :lol:

RoddickFan made it back to #1 for an amazing 7th time before being displaced by Mark Lenders for his 3rd stint at #1.

Well, on the one hand considering I haven't even been playing for 1 full year, three stints at #1 is pretty impressive. On the other hand though, 5 overall weeks in 3 stints is some pretty terrible staying power, hope I can do better this time. Haven't won any Masters 1000 title so far, changing this in IW or Miami would certainly help with staying power :p

Well, I'm the Andy Roddick of ST. 13 weeks as #1 in one stretch, one YE#1 and then top spot gone after the AO. Amusing part is that it was RoddickFan that replaced me. If you have to lose it's better to do so to fans, I guess :lol:
