Even the President of the ATP, Brad Drewett, had some words for Federer: ‘To have held the number 1 ranking for 300 weeks is a phenomenal achievement, simply unprecedented. The fact that Roger has being able to constantly rewrite the record books over such a long period of time is a credit to his hard work, dedication and talent.
