IMO weeks at #1 only comes into play if two players have very identical careers (slams, masters wins)

For example Roddick and Murray's careers are pretty much dead even, yet I think at this stage it's R-Andy who has the slight edge due to his #1 ranking. But if M-Andy gets even 1 week at the summit, he will pass him straight away.
But that's only due to MS titles and not GS's. Both have 1 GS and 4 RU's so it doesn't really help the GS > #1 argument.
