What’s more important/significant 50 more weeks at number 1 or having one more yr ending as YE NO1?
YE NO1 in my opinion.311 or 399 it is the same if you are already a record holder...

Actually scratch that it is dumb...Everyone can accumulate 50 weeks through their carier but to be YE NO 1 you have to be the best for at least 1 whole year...

It's not as impressive when you realise that they have about 5 times the combined population of Spain, Switzerland, and Serbia.
Exactly, and Spain has almost 7 times population of Serbia.

But it's irrelevant really, if we judge by population, China and India should dominate in every sport as they have more than 1/4 of Earth's population, heck almost 1/3.

That’s not how it works. Since the ranking is always "on the roll" and represents the last 52 weeks (which of course ALWAYS includes the whole circle of tournaments, at least in normal times without a pandemic), it is irrelevant at which point you are on top. You are always the best player of a full-year period.

So weeks are the only thing that matters, really. A Year-End #1 gets some free weeks at the top because of no play in December, and that should be enough of a bonus.

Nadal has equal YE NO1 as Fed
But 100 less weeks a lot can be put down to injury disruptions obviously sharing weeks with the other titans of the sport. But say u could get another 50-60 weeks or another YENO1 is that YENO1 more valuable

It is the weeks at #1 that has the advantage in Dec, not YE at #1, which is determined when the playing season is over.
