please, i hope lleyton doesn't pass pete's record! i think the most lleyton can pass is McEnroe, it's unlikely he can get further :)

He's not gonna get close to Pete. He might beat Agassi though.

I think starting from next year Marat is going to kick him off the topspot and make sure he won't be there anymore. So bye bye Lleyton you aren't going to make it far on the list.

is this consecutive weeks or just weeks? If it's consecutive then maybe he'll be able to jump over Agassi or Borg. If it's just weeks at number one then he might get past McEnroe, not sure if he'll go any further :confused:

no one will beat that record now as the ATP don't count the entry System no longer :mad:

they don't even recognise that Marat ever got to #1 either :mad: :fiery:

All the others received a trophy and some sort of presentation when they achieved the #1 but not Marat.

now the only time the #1 is given is after the TM-Cup

its a totally pathetic and flawed idea by the ATP.

Well regardless of wether or not the ATP wants to recognize it, we do :kiss:

Marat is the youngest number one, no? Was he not a bit younger than Hewitt when he held the ranking the first time?


For the question that was asked, I think that Hewitt will pass Borg. I'm unsure about Mac.

I don't think so, the ATP is so deep now that remaining #1 for such a long time as Pete had, would be a monumental task!

You also have to take into consideration that Pete stayed healthy through those years at #1, Hewitt seems to be sick every other month! All those running around the court must accelerate his body's wear and tear but if he does learn to serve and volley more I think he could surpass the "You Cannot be Serious" guy! :D :D :D

Pete had a good chance to be the year end nr 1 in 2000, but he was not interested and did not bother to play the indoor season -don't you remember?

And the purist will still count the weeks at nr1, despite the ATP.

No can't see him beating Pete, there are too many players who are close to him for him to stay there for several years. Basically 1 has to count the Entry System on this as the Race doesn't work the same way.

I think he will finish his career between Borg and McEnroe.

I thought that Agassi had been many more weeks at number 1 than he has. :eek:
