Default Re: There is no finish line...

Ok, I've gone through the ATP website's listings week by week. It's clear that they missed out weeks in the middle of tournaments that span a fortnight (so basically the Slams, IW and Miami) and they also missed the off-season in 2003/4.

That means that in addition to the 75 weeks they have him listed as #2, we would have to add on the following 14 weeks as well:
01.09.2003
22.12.2003
29.12.2003
05.01.2004
26.01.2004
01.09.2008
26.01.2009
16.03.2009
30.03.2009
01.06.2009
29.06.2009
28.06.2010
06.09.2010
24.01.2011

But that brings his total number of weeks at #2 to 89 and his total number of weeks ranked either #1 or #2 to 374, which is 2 weeks away from Sampras! Is that right? I would be grateful if anybody could spot where (if any) the error lies.
