Is 14 june the date that Roger is now passing 287 weeks at the moment as a world number 1 ? and Roger will complete 287 th week at the end of 14 th June's week ?
it's easy : if he's still number 1 after Roland-Garros, he equals Sampras.
IF he's number 1 after the Queens/Halle, he beats Sampras.
PErsonally my target is after the Queens/Halle, as it's even theoretically possible that Federer loses number 1 after RG but takes it back after Halle : in that case, he beats Sampras's record anyway as he would be number 1 3 more weeks until the end of Wimbledon
But of course it's better for that that he's still number 1 after RG
But the final target imo is after the Queens/Halle
(even though it would be better if he stays number 1 after Wimbledon
, which would require to be quite ahead of Nadal before Wimbledon as Nadal has no points to lose from last year in Wimbledon
