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.
Federer has now clinched this through to the French Open. He's now broken Sampras' record for the longest time in the top 3.
He also has a solid chance to catch Nadal now. If he can win Madrid, he'll be just 150 back of Nadal going into Rome, where he's defending nothing.
Federer - Emperor of the Slams, King of Hard, Lord of the Australian Open, Lord of Wimbledon.

"Love has nothing to do with what you're expecting to get, only what you're expecting to give - which is everything. What you receive in return varies, but that really has no connection with why you give. You give because you love and cannot help giving." - K. Hepburn.
