    I think top 4 is more relevant than top 5.

    Do you have anything for consecutive weeks inside the top 4?

    Just as top 3 is more relevant than top 4

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

    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
