Thanks for all your guesses everyone. Looks like @niketennis made me a special pair of Vapor 9’s to celebrate the #1 record! They made 287 limited edition pairs total, and some will be available for you. Very nice of these guys. Feel free to check them out @niketennis.

Congrats Roger! Well deserved achievement! Now try to get to 300 weeks!

Once upon a time there was a myth about strong and weak eras. On this glorious day the clownery was eventually unmasked: 30 y.o. past-prime daddy Fed became #1 once again in the supposed strong "Spartan" era with his rivals at their peak.
And they all lived happily ever after.
Long live King Federer!

You've got to be kidding, $287 for the shoes?

Show me the MRP.


@Johnny 'ITF' Groove:
He has a very good chance to make it past Laver's 303 weeks, IMO. Beyond that seems tough, though.

Congrats, Roger!

Laver arguably has around 303 weeks, roughly translated, 5.88 YE #1's.

Tilden, William Renshaw, and Gonzales lead all time with 364 weeks, roughly translated, 6.5 YE #'s.

If Federer holds his #1 until January 13, 2014, he can break this record too.
These are pre-Open Era records? Or combined?

It's a big record in tennis. Congrats, champ.

I remember how Federer came close to breaking this record in 2010 until Nadal went on a tear in the clay season and Federer had a few inexplicable losses, falling one week short of Sampras' record.
In retrospect, this might have been a blessing in disguise as the desire to add two more weeks as world number one might have been just the motivation to give a little bit extra in Paris, Rotterdam, Dubai et al.

How long do you guys reckon Federer will keep the number one spot this time? I guess he'll be reasonable safe until the US Open.
