Roger is finally starting to catch up to some of legends here.

Passes Johnny Mac at 7 years 9 months consecutive in the top 10. Shouldn't have a problem passing Vilas and Becker, leaving him behind Edberg, Sampras, Lendl and Connors.

This is sort of the ultimate longevity measure.

Nice to see. I can't imagine Federer dropping out of the top 10 except for retirement or grave injury.

In January 2011 Federer can beat Sampras' record for most weeks in the top 2 (non-consecutive).

US Open 2005 (Muller) and Wimbledon (2006) cost Roddick a place in that ranking, he'd be pretty close to Federer

Another year passes. Grandpa Fed still in the top 10. Will likely pass Edberg, leaving only Connors, Lendl and Sampras as those who have had longer careers at the very top of tennis.

Surprise surprise.. Rafael Nadal 25th April 2005 - 23th May 2011 ... some 6 years I would say

I suppose I should add him when I get around to it.

I would love to see consecutive weeks at top 5, feels more relevant. You can kind of sneak by beeing top 10, but top 5 requires constantly beeing at a very high level. Take how Roddick has been sneaking in the outside realm of the top 10 for almost a decade now.

Roddick is profoundly underrated. He's got 10 semis and only 1 slam, which is unprecedented.

No.. but he is all ready in front of some guy on that list at the age of 24 and if you make update do it right

Roger is number 1 in that stat in the ATP tour era.

He just passed Sampras in February. No man since Lendl has lasted that long in the top 5. Connors had a 12 year run.
