Roger Federer broke another record today when he began an unprecedented 287th week as world number one.
The 30-year-old drew level with Pete Sampras on 286 weeks with victory over Andy Murray in the Wimbledon final.
That was Federer's 17th Grand Slam title, a record equalling seventh at Wimbledon and put him top of the rankings for the first time since May 31 2010.
Federer holds a 75-point lead over world number two Novak Djokovic and is guaranteed to hold top spot heading into the Olympics.
Federer, who turns 31 in August, is the second oldest man after Andre Agassi to hold the world number one ranking.
