103 weeks at No.1

16.01.2006 | Tennis

Roger today passed the 102 consecutive weeks that Sampras spent at No. 1 to be third on the all-time list! With his 103 weeks he is now behind behind Connors (160 weeks) and Lendl (157 weeks). Pete Sampras did spend a total of 286 weeks at no.1, so Roger has still got a long way to go there! Roger has taken home 23 titles in 33 tournaments since the beginning of 2004.

 

Should Roger really capture the title Down Under it would be his third Major Title in series! The last to have achieved that was - take a guess - Pete Sampras in 1993/1994. With the 7 Majors Roger would then have reached half the amount of Sampras' mark.

Congratulations roger!
I am expecting that you'd stay even longer at no. 1 than Pete did. So this news isn't really new for me. All i am hoping for right now is that you win the Aussie Open. By doing that, you would stretch your undisputed stay at no. 1

Roger,
Congrats. Just waiting for u to beat Connors and Sampras record. If anyone can do it, YOU can. Stay healthy.
All the best, may God bless you and Mirka.

Keep up the good work!!
