Subject: Total weeks as #1 one is more prestigious than total slam titles
Q. Which is the most prestigious record in men's tennis? Is it the
most Grand Slams?

ROGER FEDERER: Yeah, I mean, I guess this one is -- yeah, to me it
almost seems like, you know. Or weeks at No. 1 maybe, because that shows
how long you've been at the top. More than slams, I guess.

But then there's many other ones as well. I feel those two are the most
important at the moment.



He's such a Sampras-fucker...

So, by that measure, Nadal will equal Federer's weeks at No. 1 around,
what... February 2013? He'll still be behind Sampras by quite a few
weeks.

He didn't say more prestigious.

I was referring to sentence "More than slams, I guess"

...but rereading this he was probably referring to the previous
sentence: weeks at #1 is more accurate meter than slams to measure how
long one has been at the top...

Exactly.
