#1 for 1 week more impressive than #1 for 285 weeks
« on: July 08, 2012, 12:25:42 PM »
He came from #3 to surpass two of the GOATs of tennis after they each had reached #1 in the interim. Prior to that, chump city competition by and large.

Supremely impressive accomplishment by Federer this, his (soon to be) 286th week at #1.

Is this about charity work?

It's really cool that the 3 of them hold GS hardware :winner: after 3 slams in 2012  :cool:  Just adds to the impressiveness of the feat!

All Nole has to do is take a WC somewhere.

As if Nole would be such an ******* as to enter Umag just to do that.

I don't usually give such matters a 2nd thought and find your observations most astute. :thumbs up:

Surely gives some extra weight to each of those trophies. :)

^Fanboyspeak :lmao!:

Hamburg will do it, dude. Why wouldn't he? Because you wouldn't like it?   :rofl_2: :rofl_2:
The difference between the two now is Rotterdam!
It's cool for Roger to chase #1 but no one else?  :hysterical:

Thanks for playing!!   :cool:

Fed has a chance still to do more, he wants the olympics and then the USO will be here before long.
 
He has a decent chance at year end #1 and going over 300 weeks at #1.
 
Fed's found a nice rhythm to his play now and should be in good shape for quite some time to come.
 
 
Again he's laid down the challenge to all comers if they dare enter the arena, there's only one result.  :death:
 
 
 
 
 
Of course I wouldn't mind a Del Potro forehand giving him a haircut but that will be discussed at a later time.

Wow, so now you're saying Fed has an interest in remaining #1?

No one else?

Picked it up in Madrid   :)  The adjustment I witnessed Roger make against Raonic warranted a change to this avatar.

The top players are not playing again until the Olympics.  So...Roger will be #1 this week.  (no tennis next week)...so he stays #1 until the matches play out at the Olympics.
