Roger Federer is about to break a Steffi Graf record

Just realised that Roger Federer is about to break Steffi's record as number one for 186 consecutive weeks. Although he is my favorite next to Steffi I wished the record would stay intact. This is different from when Davenport collects a couple of dollars for the first position amongst the women's prize money leaders.

men's & women's records are different, no? do you consider federer to be chasing court's alltime record or sampras'?

still amazing that federer could pass a women's record, since historically it is easier to dominate the womens game than the mens.

Also I dont see him winning 22 slams ..
That would be difficult to match. Federer does, however, have a chance at another of Graf's most impressive records - reaching the finals of 13 straight majors. Today's win puts him at 10; he would need to reach the finals of the Australian Open, the French Open and Wimbledon next year to tie this record.

Fed better watch his back.:)

This creepy WarriorGraFan always wants to compare Fed to Graff. but there is really no comparison between Fed and Graff. Fed is a greater and much better player than Graff ever was. Graff's OVERALL career accomplishments are a bit deceptive and should not be taken in high regard.

Yeah, he is creepy. Makes me want to go take a shower every time I read one of his posts. :-( You forgot to mention that Graf played women's tennis and that doesn't mean much compared to the men.

He was really unlucky having a flue or whatever in 05 aussie, he would have beaten that along way ago, it would have been 16 by now I think or 18 ? Ill check but when he won wimby in03, rod won USO afterwords but I think he didnot beat fed in finals.
