Federer, who has held the No. 1 position for 302 weeks in his career so far, last ranked on the top back in 2012. That year, Federer bagged six titles, including the Wimbledon title too. He then went on a Grand Slam drought in the next four years before he finally won his long-awaited 18th Grand Slam in Australian Open 2017 followed by the No. 19 and 20 Grand Slams at Wimbledon and Australian Open.
“My comeback since 2016 has been so incredible that we’re already happy as is but I thought I’d give it a go and see if I can get No 1 this week,” the 20-time men’s singles Grand Slam winner said.
