227 + 102 + ? = 329 total weeks Nadal
268 + ? + ? = 268 total weeks Connors

He would reach it before Rome, assuming he maintains his ranking. Fed has clinched number 3 for another three weeks, bringing him just 5 shy of Sampras.

A win vs Nadal, will put him out of reach until April 23rd, putting him just 3 weeks shy of Sampras's record.
I make that 449 total weeks for Federer and 457 weeks for Sampras, but you are right in that he is 8 weeks shy at present.

Thanks for your continued contributions to the thread!
