With the victory today against Khachanov, Djokovic clinches 282 weeks at No. 1 (until mid week at IW).

So howcome both Federer and Djokovic have/will have 300 weeks at #1 and Nadal only 200?
More hardcourts tournaments to their liking. But still that math isnt that bad for Rafa.

Rafa is known for being injured and regular knee tendinitis preventing him from playing full calenders, so it'd be impossible for him to reach 300 weeks.
Its a miracle that he's reached 200 weeks, and a miracle that he's won 4 US Opens despite not playing in 2012 and 2014, and retiring in 2018 USO semis, and playing with a torn stomach muscle in 2009 USO semis.
He's on the brink of tying the US Open record and tying the overall slam record despite being consistently injured during his prime, and that has most likely cost him the 300 week milestone.
