Default CONGRATULATIONS for Breaking the Record for Weeks at #1!!!!

Today, Roger will officially break that record.



Federer to match Connors' record


Federer won his 10th Grand Slam title in Australia last month
Roger Federer will equal Jimmy Connors' 25-year-old record as the longest reigning world number one when the new rankings are released on Monday.
The Swiss joins Connors as the second man to hold the top position for 160 consecutive weeks.

Federer's reign began on 4 February, 2004, and such is his lead in the rankings he is certain to remain number one for months to come.

Connors' unbeaten run at the top of the rankings came between 1974 and 1977.

Speaking after winning his 10th Grand Slam title at the Australian Open in January, Federer said that the rankings feat would stand out among his many records.

"I think it's one of the most important records that I'll beat, perhaps even the most significant," said the Swiss. "I'm in a hurry to do it."

... and long may it continue.

Take a moment, if you will, Federer admirers, to mull over the last 160 weeks. The sustained magnificence produced by an incomparable, peerless athlete. The subdued grace that accompanied said magnificence. The poetry that ensued from the wielding of not a pen, but a racquet...

I can continue to wax, but it would not suffice. Take a moment, if you will.

I remain eternally striving.

A chance realization has me somewhat amused:

Given that Federer begain his reign at the summit of the World Rankings on February 2, 2004, which was a leap year...

... on February 26, 2006, when he will officially break the record, he will be World No. 1 for exactly...

3 YEARS, 3 WEEKS and 3 DAYS

Congrats Roger

This is a very nice record to break. I truly didn't imagine Roger breaking this record when he took over as no. 1. All I remember thinking was that finally he had become no. 1 and he more than deserved it.

I'll bet Jimmy didn't think the kid standing next to him would break his record one day.

the best thing about Rogi equalling or breaking records is that he does so just by playing tennis and winning matches and titles...

I bet old Jimbo didn't. Could you tell me when was this taken?
