    So is every player required to play 4 ATP500 events? If so, how come Murray doesnt have a 0-pointer when he only played Olympics and 3 ATP500? http://www.atpworldtour.com/Tennis/Players/Top-Players/Andy-Murray.aspx?t=rb

    I really wanna see fed get to 300 weeks on #1.

    NOBODY has done that. As all the teenyboppers would say, that would be "epic" (god I hate that word).

    Well, Fed fans only care about what Fed has done well. So no surprise here.

    They require to play 4 ATP500's, including one after the US Open, for their six best results (ATP500's and 250's) to be taken into account. Otherwise, only five are counted (notice that Murray's Queens result is "non countable", although this wouldn't have changed much, considering how well he did there) and they get a 0-pointer (when needed) to keep the 6th result out of it, as it were. It complicates things a lot, if you ask me, but there you go.

    Nadal currently has two 0-pointers, one for Beijing and another one for Valencia.

    congradulations to Roger for his 300s.

    Lendl(80s) set the record with 270 weeks, and Sampras(90s) broke the record with 286. Who knows if someone will ever break Fed's record, but I doubt that will happen in the next 10 years.

    80s: Lendl with 270 weeks, and many doubted there would ever be someone overtaking him; and then we have...
    90s: Sampras with 286 weeks, and many doubted there would ever be someone overtaking him; and then we have...
    2000s to early 2010s: Federer with 300+ weeks.

    Moral of the story: don't doubt, just wait and see. There will always be someone else taking over. I think the person who has the most potential to do it is Novak Djokovic, followed by Nadal.

    I'd say the person with the most potential to do it is someone in the future, who's not 25+ and will come in to dominate the game after Federer, Nadal, Djokovic, and Murray are all 30+ or retired.

    QFT.

    If any player who's going to challenge Roger's records, it would be someone at least 19 or 20 years old coming on the scene and start making noise.
