Nadal Overtake Federer For Most Weeks in Top 2

Slam H2H is far more important than weeks at #1 advantage. Nadal will end with over 200 weeks at #1 likely, so it's not like Federer has 70% domination ratio there either.
Says *************.

You need a match up advantage against 1 person for H2H, you need match up advantage against the whole field for weeks at No 1.

Being #2 in the rankings is based on averaging all points.

When Fed racked up most of his Weeks at #1, Nadal was too young. Federer, in comparison, had achieved zilch by age 21.

As for Djokovic, nobody can contest his 2011 dominance, which was unbelievable. He got additional weeks at #1 due to Nadal being out injured for 7 months.

And now, the really important statistic: What is the combined slam H2H between Nadal and Federer/Djokovic?

Sure. Dominance over one guy you match up favourably against trumps dominance over everybody else. Okay.

My eyes glazed over reading this. Even Nadal will not brag and first pump over weeks at #2.

Look who's talking. The guy who makes a mountain of a few people in the crowd booing Nadal and can't even bring himself to mention the overwhelming audience response and support to Rafa after the match, or the praise he received from both Stan and the tournament director.

Is this your daily driver? :)

Every losing finalist gets a massive audience response and warm words in the post match ceremony. I cant remember a slam final where a male player was booed like that.

Every year, Nadal takes a lot of points on clay, which allow him to stay in the TOP2 or 3 even if he gets poor results on hard courts. I think he will stay in the top rankings for many more weeks ;)
