Default Fed stats - with most weeks in top-2, 3, 5 and 10

I thought I'd make a thread for some small stats which are rarely mentioned.

Fed has, as we know, been ranked #1, #2 and #3. And we remember a short spell of #4 last year. Those are the only ones for quite a while now. But once he was up-and-coming and advanced through the rankings, touching many places on the way. So what is the highest ranking he never had in his career even for a single week? Answer in next post.

Federer currently, as we all know, hold the record for most weeks as #1. But what about most weeks in top-2, top-3, top-4, top-5 or top-10? I will give these lists here, so we can see if and when he takes any of these records.
