Default Fed stats - with most weeks in top-2, 3, 5 and 10

I thought I'd make a thread for some small stats which are rarely mentioned.

Fed has, as we know, been ranked #1, #2 and #3. And we remember a short spell of #4 last year. Those are the only ones for quite a while now. But once he was up-and-coming and advanced through the rankings, touching many places on the way. So what is the highest ranking he never had in his career even for a single week? Answer in next post.

Federer currently, as we all know, hold the record for most weeks as #1. But what about most weeks in top-2, top-3, top-4, top-5 or top-10? I will give these lists here, so we can see if and when he takes any of these records.

Most total weeks top-2
1) Roger Federer. 418
2) Ivan Lendl...... 409
3) Rafael Nadal.... 378 (*)
4) Pete Sampras.. 376
5) Jimmy Connors. 356

Most consecutive weeks top-2

Most consecutive weeks top-3

2) Roger Federer. 433

4) Jimmy Connors. 378, 3/6-74 - 1/9-81 (wikipedia gives 507, 3/6-74 - 20/2-84, but this cannot be correct as Connors was 4th seed at 1981 US Open)

That's really interesting! Surprised he's been them all in the top 25 apart from those two.

That is true. He won't catch the present #7, Tomas Berdych, who has actually broken Andre Agassis old record for most weeks in this position. Agassi is unique in that he has at least 33 weeks in every top-10 position. This record I don't particularly want Fed to beat....

Good point. But more important is that Federer takes the records for most weeks in top 2 ,3 5 etc. Top 10 will be hard with 5+ years to go.

I saw a list for most weeks in top-2, top-3, top-5 and top-10 on Wikipedia not long ago, but it has since been removed, for some reason. Does anyone still have it available? Anyway, from memory Ivan Lendl had 403 weeks in the top-2. At the moment Federer is in his 384th week, so if he can manage an additional 20 that will be enough for this record. 20 weeks from now takes us to Jan 14th. This is not only possible, but very probable indeed.

As for top-3 I remember Connors having well over 200 weeks in 3rd position, so that is going to be more difficult. And since Connors also had a lot of weeks as #4 and #5 this is not a record that is going to be broken anytime soon. Something to look forward to, then

Default Re: Fed stat trivia

Here it is (old revision of the page you mean):

http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?...8since_1973.29

top 3 is `only' 87 weeks to go, i.e. May 2014. Should be doable. Top 5 is 4 years to go, too hard to predict.

Federer missed out on the consecutive top 3 record with his blip to #4 last year. Consecutive top 5 perhaps... 3 years to go.

Thanks a lot, Apophis! I really appreciate it I was unaware of the possibility of finding old revisions. Not that old, by the way, listing #294 weeks as #1....but it only has 124 HC slam wins, so it is not updated as carefully as the new revision.

Default Re: Fed stats - with most weeks in top-2, top-3, top-5, top-10 (post #1 and #2 update

Yes it is from 25 August. It was reverted because it was updated into the future. I'll restore it in the near future, although it is difficult to find a proper source. With tennis stats on wikipedia we are usually somewhere in between `original research' and `good sources', so usually additions stay until someone feels like deleting it, which is often hard to argue then

Default Re: Fed stats - with most weeks in top-2, top-3, top-5, top-10 (post #1 and #2 update

I have updated post #1 with more than the usual new week. Sampras' consecutive top-5 weeks has been expanded from 408 to 491. His ranking page on ATP gives 7th for week beginning 22/11-99, but this is wrong. He was 5th that week. His series thus stretches into 2001.

For players active in the 70s of early 80s some uncertainty exists, and different sources give different amount of weeks. Alternative (and credible) versions are given in paranthesis.
