Some time in the near future, people will wonder whether or not Djokovic and/or Nadal will eve win slams again or regaining their respective rankings; the lesson learned is that players such as these can never be counted out, no matter what historical trends predict and historical trends certainly did predict that Federer was highly unlikely to regain the #1 ranking.

From a historic perspective, this is really unprecedented territory for Federer in one respect.

--He regained the #1 for the second time after having lost it for at least 11 months each time. The first time he regained #1, it took him 11 months. The second time, it took him 2 years and 1 month.

Agassi, whose entire career is the most asymetrical of any great (or otherwise) tennis player's first regained the #1 in 1999 after 3 years and 5 months. He then regained it again after have lost it for 2 years and 8 months. It's highly unlikely anyone will ever do this again.

Connors regained the #1 after having lost if for 2 years and 9 months. While it was a great achievement, it was aided by the sudden departure of Borg from the game.

Sampras regained the #1 after having lost it for exactly one year.

What makes Federer's return to #1 rather remarkable is that he is playing in an era with two other dominant players in their or near their primes in Nadal and Djokovic who, the past two years, have had phenomenal years, i.e., Nadal in 2010 and Djokovic in 2011.

he still needs 1 more slam to repel Nadal in GS titles won record, imo (this is where Djoko comes in useful and hopefully Muzza some day)


but the Sampy ranking record is great, it was meant to be

lets hope he ends year #1 as well, he can still gain tons of points up till London/Paris indoor

I agree with you. The slam record is still not safe. He needs 1 or preferably 2 or even 3 more to make it safe. The Djoker did well last year to stem the Nadal tide. Murray is ready I feel to help the Djoker fight the good fight against the matador.

yes, but actually more than the number of weeks record, it's much more remarkable and valuable that he gets back to number 1 at nearly 31 years old

Older than Connors, only less old than Agassi

it's very possible because the WTF and Bercy give him a huge advantage until they drop off, which means after Bercy.

Djokovic could take the number 1 back after the Olympics, but then with all the points Djokovic will lose, Fed has a big chance to get the number 1 back for a few months until the end of Bercy (see the numbers I posted in the "rankings discussion" thread : http://www.menstennisforums.com/show...1&postcount=72 )

I concur.

I also thought the #1 was an impossibility for him. Especially when Nole 2.0 came to the scene.

Federer should aim for 20, it just sounds like the perfect number to distance himself completely from other greats.
