    I think it should be like this:

    1 Federer 7515
    2 Nadal 5225
    3 Roddick 2955

    If there was no Fed, Nadal would be a good No.1 knowing that Sampras when he was number one never peaked above 5100 or so points, although I think the points system was tweaked slightly since 2000, but still...hehe

    Looks like a long shot for Roddick to climb to Numero Uno.

    Federer's point total is consistently amazing. The margin by which he has held the number one ranking for the last few years is a phenomenal accomplishment. He simply doesn't lose matches...to the point that losing 4 this year before getting to the French has been a huge topic.

    It'll never happen, unless Mr Fed and Rafa and a bunch of other top teners retire, all at the same time....

    yes, In Sampras's times, it was best 13 system instead of 18 system now.
    (in 2000 they "tweaked" it into "modified" 13 system. But dramatically changed
    it into best of 18 system in 2002( or 2003?))

    And the points given for slams(1000pts) and masters(500pt) got bigger
    now, I think.

    plus, there used to be bonus points if lower ranked players beat higher
    rankers like top 10. Currently there is no bonus point. This makes the lead
    even bigger. (maybe with bonus point, Nadal could be awarded huge amount of points
    by continuously beating Federer??)

    If you use current rank system, I think Sampras had Federer like lead
    in ranking for a period of about 1 - 2 year.

    It's amazing that Federer mainstains this lead for more than 3 years now
    but it was generally harder in Sampras' times since tennis was much more
    polarized (specialized) in each surface in 90's.
