As per the ATP Rankings announced on 15th October, 2012,this week (15th to 21st October, 2012) heralds the beginning of Roger Federer's 300th week at ATP No. 1 (or in simpler words, 299 weeks as ATP No. 1 got completed on 14th October, 2012 & the week 15th October to 21st October, 2012 is Roger Federer's 300th week as ATP No. 1).
Here's a special poster created by Nike on the occasion of Roger Federer completing 300 weeks at ATP #1, which Roger Federer re-shared on his official Facebook -----
So, now, the next logical question is that how many more weeks can Roger Federer remain ATP No. 1 in 2012?
Before, we go any further, let us firstly look at the Tennis schedule of Roger Federer for 2012 (which got announced in December, 2011). Here is the link.
As you can see, only 3 tournaments are left in this year's schedule.
As you all are aware that Roger Federer is the defending champion of all these three tournaments.
How many ATP points does Roger Federer needs to defend from here on (updated after Shanghai Masters, 2012)
Roger Federer has to defend 500 points for Basel 2011, 1000 points for Bercy Masters, 2011 & as he won WTF, 2011 undefeated, so Federer has to defend 1500 points for WTF, 2011.
So, in total, Roger Federer has to defend 3000 ATP points from here on.
Also, for every one interested in knowing why I put up a question mark if Roger Federer will play at Bercy Masters, 2012 or not in spite of being a defending champion there, please have a look at how tightly these three tournaments are scheduled.
So, for knowing for how many more weeks can Roger Federer remain ATP No. 1 in 2012, keep reading the detailed explanation in this topic in the following posts.
