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.
Thanks this is something I was looking for yes. But this is probably Year end rankings. It can be tricky sometimes. Can you tell me total weeks being number one for those players. Because 5 years ending number one could mean that you are nr.1 just total 5 weeks in theory. So I don't think it is fair.
If you can give me total weeks for those players that would help me a lot.
