    I'd like to see Federer break the record. He's only a year away. I'd also like to see Serena pass Lindsay and Justine. It seems appropriate. She should definitely be higher than 8th.

    It's kind of fun to see the people who have only barely held it. I didn't know Rafter and Moya only briefly were at the top spot. I was also shocked that Ivanovic has already passed Venus.

    Shouldn't there be another 1 weeker in the WTA spot? Who was the older player who had the number one ranking for a week but wasn't given it due to a computer error, then got it some time last year?

    This is definitely the most surprising part of this list - seems like Venus should have a lot more weeks, but I guess that was when Serena was beating her in all those Grand Slam Finals.

    Well, Novak extended his No.1 leading by another 2 weeks. How long do you think will he stay there ?

    Re: ATP: Weeks at #1

    Serena is almost mathematically certain to maintain the #1 ranking for the majority of next year. She has 4,500 points just from the USO, Beijing, and the YEC. She should pass Hingis for #4 spot.
    ...
    If Djokovic gets the top spot back for just nine weeks, then Federer, Nadal, and Djokovic will all be in the top seven for most weeks at #1. That's insane.

    Re: ATP: Weeks at #1

    Thanks for posting this update. I see that Goolagong's entry at 2 weeks came at the expense of Evert.
