BTW, with a list of players who held a number ranking for the most years (professional and open era), you end up with a list like this:

Pancho Gonzalez (8 years)
Bill Tilden (7 years)
Rod Laver (7 years)
Jack Kramer (7 years)
Ken Rosewall (6 years)
Pete Sampras (6 years)
Roger Federer (5 years)
Don Budge (5 years)
Fred Perry (5 years)
Bjorn Borg (4 years)

When I look at this seriously, this list is probably the best I've ever seen for a complete professional and open-era top-10 all time. Every single person on that list was/is absolutely amazing.
