Serbia’s Novak Djokovic reached on Monday the 311th week in a row as the best ranking tennis player on the ATP list ever, surpassing Swiss Roger Federer, whose record was believed to be unbeatable.
The two are followed by Pitt Sampras, Ivan Lendl and Jimmy Connors.

Djokovic became the #1 in July 2011 after beating Spaniard Rafael Nadal in the final of the Wimbledon tournament, which was also his first title at that world most prestigious tennis event.
He holds several other statistical records but is still two Grand Slams short of 20 won by Federer and Nadal.
