Re: Doubles Players Ranked Number One

Was there any Top 10 doubles player who was also a Top 10 singles player?

Former number one players in singles who were top 10 doubles players : Edberg, Becker, Wilander, McEnroe, Newcombe, Kafelnikov, Rafter. There must be many more who were top 10 in both.

Re: Doubles Players Ranked Number One

I know Edberg and McEnroe did the double (No. 1 in singles and doubles).

I think Newcombe probably did it as well.

Anders Jarryd reached a high of #5 in singles (was in the top 10 in singles for ca. 3 years), and was #1 in doubles for 100+ weeks.
