  • Roger Federer just smashed yet another tennis record.
  • The 20-time tennis major champion has now spent 700 weeks — or 13.4 years — ranked in the top four male players in the sport.
  • Something tells us Federer is not done yet.


Roger Federer is a record-breaker.

The 36-year-old has the most Grand Slam singles titles (20), the highest hard court match win percentage (87.6%), and was the world's oldest number one when he was briefly top of the tennis tree earlier in the year.

Many of Federer's records are seen as "unbreakable" — but even in his twilight years, the Swiss continues to rewrite the history books.

This is because Federer is now the first ATP player to spend 700 weeks ranked in the top four male players in the world. This is 13.4 years spent accumulating trophies, wealth, and fame.

Federer has other ATP ranking records. After all, he is the first ATP player to spend 300 weeks ranked at number one, the first to spend 500 weeks in the top two, and 600 weeks in the top three.

Federer is currently taking a break. He won the 2018 Australian Open in January and the Rotterdam Open in February, but after losses in the Indian Wells Masters final and the second round of the Miami Open, he decided to skip the clay court season so he could be fresh for the 2018 Wimbledon Championships. A tournament he has won a record eight times.

The earliest Federer will return to the sport is in June, for the Gerry Weber Open in Halle. But, considering his record at Wimbledon, something tells us he could continue to rewrite the history books in the near future.
