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

For sure you will break the record for TOTAL WEEKS as # 1...
In my opinion, YOUR OWN RECORD of holding the NUMBER ONE POSITION for the MOST CONSECUTIVE WEEKS (237 consecutive weeks) is a much BIGGER ACHIEVEMENT (and I doubt it will ever be broken).

Dear Roger, as you said, statistics is no longer something you are chasing after now, but rather the pleasure and enjoyment of playing some best tennis out of yourself and being able to exert your influence in tennis to contributing to those in need. Don
