Roger Federer celebrates a thousand weeks at the world ranking.
In 1999 he was only 18 years old when he managed to enter his world career for the first time.
From then on, he stayed up to date – most of the times – in the top positions of the rankings.
He is classified as “the best tennis player of all time” at the age of 37 and with almost minor injuries will continue to maintain that record until he decides to stop fighting.
