Re: Will Federer regain the #1 spot and break Sampras's record for most weeks at the
Agassi was two years older but he became number one in 2003 with:
- AO, by playing one top 30, Grosjean, number 16 by that time, perhaps the easiest GS in the history.(Vahaly, Lee, Escudé, kid Coria, Grosjean, Ferreira, Shuettler)
- Two Masters Series, Miami (but he beat only El Ayanaoui, Costa and Moya, not a nightmare draw on hard) and Madrid ( Ferrero, Grosjean and Novak)
- Two smallers tournaments (Houston and San José)
He was the RU in the USO, he lost at the quarter in the French and at the 4th round in Wimbledon.
Good but not comparable to Federer IMO.
