Re: There is no finish line...

He's also passed Vilas for Outdoor match wins, and earlier he passed Lendl for wins. Second all time now for total match wins.

The ranking stuff is interesting too:

Federer has 645 weeks in the top 4

Connors has 669. Federer is just 24 weeks shy of Connors. That's, 5 months and another 15 days. He could get it at Christmas time.

Top 5, Federer has 672 weeks, Connors has 705. He is just 33 weeks behind, and could get it as early as next February.

Federer has not yet mounted his assault on Connors' top 10 and consecutive weeks in the top 10 - he is just 20 weeks behind Agassi.

Connors had an amazing 817 weeks in the top 10. Federer is now at 727, second highest total in the unified tour era. Agassi was last top 10 in April of 2006, at the age of 35, nearly 36.

Federer is roughly 8 months ahead of Agassi's pace over his career.

Connors was last in the top 10 at April of 1989, at the age of 36.5 Federer is some 90 weeks behind, and still trails Connors at equivalent points of their careers.

In order for Federer to beat Connors in both records, he has to accumulate enough points to stay ahead of Theim (2,790); Raonic (2,635); Kei Nishikori, 2,725; Wawrinka, 2,325.

Those are the players that Fed fans need to keep a close eye on. Nadal is at 2,930.

Fed can only let two past him, so he has to stay ahead of 2 of 4 of these players in order to keep a shot at Connors.

Federer today tied Connors' record of 14 Wimbledon QFs made

That's only an ATP record, btw. Navratilova has 20 (in a row!)

Must be a cutoff, though, to put Goffin in the lead. Surely someone managed 1 from 1.

I think the study only includes those players that challenged at least 100 times

That means he is 58 weeks behind. Soon he'll begin making his assault on this record.
Well, there's also he consecutive weeks in the top-100. Here he's actually closer to Connors. Here he's just 59 weeks behind with 51 more weeks guaranteed. This one he could actually make sure of getting this year, if he takes enough points in Paris/WTF
