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.


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.
