268 + ? + ? = 268 total weeks Connors

He would reach it before Rome, assuming he maintains his ranking. Fed has clinched number 3 for another three weeks, bringing him just 5 shy of Sampras.

A win vs Nadal, will put him out of reach until April 23rd, putting him just 3 weeks shy of Sampras's record.
I make that 449 total weeks for Federer and 457 weeks for Sampras, but you are right in that he is 8 weeks shy at present.

Thanks for your continued contributions to the thread!

- Although he has the most slam finals appearances he does not have the honor of owning the most "won or lost to the eventual winner" in slams. he is at 28 vs. Lendl at 31. Astoundingly Lendl lost to the eventual champ 23 times!!! i do think this is an important milestone if he can ever reach it
- Did we put in here Olympic singles gold??? OK obvious but still
Hi Approach Shot do you think the above unattained goals are worthy to be added to your next first post update?

Federer has now clinched this through to the French Open. He's now broken Sampras' record for the longest time in the top 3.

He also has a solid chance to catch Nadal now. If he can win Madrid, he'll be just 150 back of Nadal going into Rome, where he's defending nothing.

Just wondering... if Fed does get one extra week at #2, does he break or equal the record for most weeks in Top 2?

According to wikipedia Federer has 91 weeks at No. 2, which makes him tied with Sampras at 376 in TOP2 (according to first page of this thread he has 90 though, I don't know which is correct).

Defeat Berdych and Sampras's time in the top 2 falls as well.

I tracked Feds ranking thoughout his career and wikipedia seems to be correct (and the first post isn't).
Fed has 91 weeks at No. 2 (4+11+46+4+4+22). If he gets 1 more week at No. 2, he will have the record for most weeks inside TOP2 (right now he is tied with Sampras).

I believe Robger has just broken a tie with Connors. Now he is the only player to have won 10 or more titles on each of hard, clay and grass. Can anyone refute this stat?

This list tracks those players who remain active since Roger's slam participation streak began in AO 2000 - 12 years ago. The list is down from 14 to 13, with Gambill's retirement and his zeroed points.

Some significant changes: Ivan Ljubicic has retired, and with his clay points coming off. JCF is now Roger's closest competition at 47. Haas has now recovered his slam eligibility, and Clement should get a WC for RG.

Juan Carlos Ferrero - STILL ACTIVE - (47)
Ivan Ljubicic - RETIRED (53)
Michael Llodra - STILL ACTIVE - (58)
Tommy Haas - STILL ACTIVE - (113)
Arnaud Clement - STILL ACTIVE - (142)
Rainer Schuttler - STILL ACTIVE - (170)
Lleyton Hewitt - STILL ACTIVE - (178)

Christophe Rochus - STILL ACTIVE - (942) [March 3rd 2013] (9 RP)
Noam Okun - STILL ACTIVE - (1049) [June 4th, 2012] (6 RP)
Antony Dupuis - STILL ACTIVE - (1426) [September 10th, 2012] (2 RP)
Jiri Vanek - STILL ACTIVE - (1533) [June 4th 2012] (1 RP)

Rochus with his SF at France F4, resets the count. The other three are rapidly running out of time.

Joseph Sirianni has his last win in November 7th at Ortisei, and so is still active.
George Bastl had his last win in November 14th at Bratislava.

Gambill has retired.
