It's generally not nice to call people liars. But if you said you saw this coming after Roger Federer failed to convert two match points against Novak Djokovic at last year's US Open then you, my friend, are a liar.

Of all the great achievements in Roger Federer's career, pulling back ahead of Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal while he's 30 and they're in their prime may be one of the most remarkable. Yeah, the 17 Grand Slam titles aren't bad either.

Federer's return to No. 1 ties him with Pete Sampras for most weeks atop the ATP rankings. He's assured of setting the mark next Monday as neither he nor Djokovic are playing in an event this week.
