Roger ties with Connors

01.02.2010 | Tennis

Roger's 16th grand slam title has secured him some space at the top of the ATP world ranking. Quite a few changes have occurred directly behind him, though: Novak Djokovic (2) and Andy Murray (3) have moved up, Rafael Nadal has fallen to fourth place.


Roger reached 268 weeks as number one of the ATP ranking today and has thus leveled Jimmy Connors' best mark. Ahead of him lie only two further players: Ivan Lendl (270) and Pete Sampras (286). And our champ certainly is on track to breaking these rekords, too!


1. Pete Sampras (USA) : 286

2. Ivan Lendl (CZE/USA) : 270

3. Jimmy Connors (USA) and Roger Federer (SUI) : 268

5. John McEnroe (USA) : 170

6. Björn Borg (SWE) : 109

7. Andre Agassi (USA) : 101

8. Lleyton Hewitt (AUS) : 80

9. Stefan Edberg (SWE) : 72

10. Jim Courier (USA) : 58

Dear Roger,
Hearty Congratulations. Last year - I had requested you to focus more and had listed few unfinshed tasks that you need to complete. My family (who are also sincere fans of you) had asked me - do you think Roger is really going to read all

At the rate Roger is going, he will break Sampras' record by the French Open. Hopefully he will also take the calendar Grand Slam and, THEN, there will be nothing else for anyone to use to say that he is not the Greatest Of All Time.

I am proud as fan of this great Champion. More than the records, the way Roger plays, the style, purity, fluency and perfection will be very hard to emulate
