Default Roger Federer will break a Steffi Graf record!!!

Just realised that Roger Federer is about to break Steffi's record as number one for 186 consecutive weeks. Although he is my favorite next to Steffi I wished the record would stay intact. This is different when Davenport collects a couple of dollars for the first position amongst the women's prize money leaders.

Don't be disappointed that Roger takes the record from Steffi. It doesn't take anything away from Steffis achievements

That's so nice of you to say! I stopped watching tennis when Steffi retired, but since years I like it again because of Roger. He reminds me so much of her. I know they have different personalities, but there are some similarities. Their footwork is the best I ahve ever seen. I am still hoping someone can make a video combining their movement with the song ''Far from over'' by Frank Stallone.

Thanks for the reply.

Isn't it already broken? He is now at 187? Or not?

Edit:
If I am right he is at 186 now. So yes, the record is (defenitely) going to get broken.

His current lead in the rankings guarantees that on August 27, 2007 he will break Steffi Graf's record for most consecutive weeks (186) as the top-ranked male or female player. In 2007, he was named Laureus World Sportsman of the Year for a record third consecutive time.

You know I was exactly like you...after Steffi retired in 1999 I stopped caring about tennis.
I still always watched Wimbledon...but that was it...Roger changed all that though.

So yeah, in my opinion...if there is one person who is deserving of equalling and breaking Steffi's record(s) it is Roger Federer.
If it was anyone else...I might be a bit upset too...but Roger is truly deserving.

I see similarities in both of them too...though I think Steffi was far more mentally tough than Roger.

Yes this Monday marked the completion of 186 weeks. On the 27th of August it will be 187 and the new record

haha yeah I dont think even Roger will be able to break that one...though you never know...if there is someone who could potentially do it, it's him.

But yeah, Roger was saying how in the Womens game the records are always so much larger than in the mens...
so for him to be breaking a womens all-time record...and making it THE record for all of tennis, is really quite something...

Oh great to read you have some the same sentiments about Steffi Graf and Roger Federer. Yet in the mental department she was something else. I was thinking that when I watched the RG final 2006 between Nadal and Federer. Nadal is a Sancheze Vicario/Sabatini with power like player and Roger just stops believing he can win. Steffi Graf never showed that. That is something I only I have seen once in the long career of Graf and that was in her final match at Wimbledon. That is the only time I saw Graf not really intense any more, which is strange if you watched her match with Venus in the quarters.

Roger and Steffi share a couple of mannerism. They way they look when they missed a shot,with the head up. Also the footwork, they are the only two players who remind me of dancers. Another similarity is that both have such a beautiful tennisbody. I don't know, maybe it's just me, but the Federer - Nadal matches always make me think of the Graf - Sabatini matches.

Well, you should know that she was a bit diverted at that time She has just fallen in love with Andre. Beside this I think she was already at a point in her career where she knew that tennis wasn't the same for her as some years ago. Due to her injuries she had to take a break several times. Her life wasn't really easy with all the private stuff going on and of course the terrible attack from Günter Parche on Monica Seles.

I was watching women tennis through Steffis whole career, but just followed it occasionally since her retirement. I'm so happy for her that she found her place in life with Andre and her kids. Whoever thought she would be able to give up tennis so easily?

Yeah, I would have never thought that. She was a Warrior until the end though. The last match we've seen the Great Graf was her quarterfinal match against Venus, and after that she just checked out. I have so much respect for her, she played through a lot of pshycial and mental pain. But she was such a proud warrior to watch. She gets a lot a attacks on many forums, and that is so wrong. She played and beat three generations of players. Her footwork and forehand, were art in my eyes. I miss her. I miss that forehand and footwork. But at least we have Roger.
