Roger Federer is Back to #1 with his 97th Career Title

Roger Federer is #1 again.  He is the oldest #1 in history supplanted Andre Agassi in that category.  Given that he defends 2000 combined points at Indian Wells and Miami, I am not sure that it will be a long reign.  Still, it is fairly unbelievable.  If Rafa wins Acapulco, where the Spaniard is defending…
