Federer has been ranked in the top 5 for 504 consecutive weeks. This is the third most all time. Next up is Lendl - 588 weeks and Connors 659 weeks.

Nadal is at 388 weeks. 10 weeks behind 5th place, John McEnroe.

Djokovic is at 279 weeks. He is aways from 8th place, Stefan Edberg at 373 weeks.

I think top 4 is more relevant than top 5.

Top 2, maybe, but not top 3. You forget how players are seeded.

Connors was just insane.

Connors was just insane.

Yes, he was. It is worth noting that if Federer hadn't fallen to #4 for 6 weeks in 2011, he probably would have passed Connors for consecuive weeks at #3. 432 + 6 weeks (he was #4) + last 6 weeks of 2011 (ranked #3) + 52 weeks (all of 2012) = 496.

He would have to be in the top 3 for another 12 weeks in 2013 to pass this record.

Consecutive Top 3:
1. Jimmy Connors 507
2. Ivan Lendl 497
3. Roger Federer 432
4. Pete Sampras 391
5. John McEnroe 374
