Here it says



without a clear source. Can anyone confirm the 377 weeks? I think it must be about correct. Sampras' 376 is correct.

As for total weeks in top 3, Sampras still has a handsome lead on Federer. According to http://www.tennis28.com/rankings/weeks_No2_No10.html Sampras had 81 weeks at #3 and 457 weeks in the top 3, while Federer has only 26 weeks at #3 by now (http://www.tennis28.com/rankings/history/federer.html). Federer spent only 4 weeks at #4 by the way. :P

As for consecutive top 3, Federer has been top 3 since halfway 2003 without interruption (http://www.tennis28.com/charts/Federer_rank.GIF), some 7.5 years. Sampras has roughly the same if I read his graph correctly: http://www.tennis28.com/charts/Sampras_rank.GIF.
I don't think it's quite right, he's had 285 at #1 as we know and 88 at #2 I believe, with a total of 373 (the person who calculated it possibly missed out that time he dropped to #3 last summer?), but that's certainly one to keep an eye on! Not sure if I got that right, he might have already broken it
