On July 16, 2012, Roger Federer surpassed Pete Sampras’ record for most weeks as the top-ranked tennis player in the world. With his 287th week as the world’s No. 1, the Swiss maestro further cemented his status as the greatest of all time.
To commemorate the 287th week as the world's No. 1, Nike Tennis created a limited-edition series of Roger’s signature Zoom Vapor 9 Tour shoe, limited to 287 pairs. The packaging was designed by Darrin Crescenzi.
