Re: Most consecutive weeks in top 10

Nadal Power, your numbers are wrong.

22.11.1999 7 Sampras.

Sampras was ranked at 7 in November 22nd 1999. So his streak was snapped, and Roger has the longest streak of the ATP tour era.

Re: Most consecutive weeks in top 10

Top 5

1. Jimmy Connors 12 years 07 months
2. Ivan Lendl 10 years 00 months
4. Roger Federer 8 years 05 months
3. Bjorn Borg 8 years 03 months
5. Pete Sampras 7 years 11 months
6. John McEnroe 7 years 06 months
7. Stefan Edberg 7 years 02 months
8. Rafael Nadal 6 years 03 months
9. Novak Djokovic 4 years 02 months
10. Boris Becker 4 years 00 months

This is the correct table. Borg will get through to '83 and I will update the 10 table reflect Borg's extra time.

I strongly caution against using weeks, because rankings were not done every week back in the day and implies a precision which doesn't exist.

Re: Most consecutive weeks in top 10

Fed moving up the ten as well. This is now 9 years he has spent in the top 10. With his win in the tour finals, odds are good for him to see a decade.

Re: Most consecutive weeks in top 10

Now moving up to 4th all time, behind only Connors, Lendl and Sampras.

9 years 6 months, consecutively. Should remain top 10 until February of 2012 now, so that's another 10 months, so around 10 years 4 months, or so.

Andy Murray needs another 4 months to find himself on this list as well.

First time since Lendl, Connors, Borg, and McEnroe found themselves all in the top 4 that 4 of the top 10 have been on this list at the same time.

Re: Most consecutive weeks in top 10

Top 5:

1. Jimmy Connors 12 years 07 months
2. Ivan Lendl 10 years 00 months
3. Roger Federer 9 years 05 months
4. Bjorn Borg 8 years 03 months
5. Pete Sampras 7 years 11 months
6. John McEnroe 7 years 06 months
7. Rafael Nadal 7 years 03 months
8. Stefan Edberg 7 years 02 months
9. Novak Djokovic 4 years 11 months
10. Boris Becker 4 years 01 months

11. Andy Murray 3 years 10 months.

Strongest tennis era - Connors/Lendl/McEnroe/Borg (1,2,4,6)
Current era - Federer/Nadal/Djokovic/Murray (3,7,9,11)

3 years 4 months for Roger, 2 years 9 months for Rafa, 3 years 4 months for Novak, 3 years 7 months for Murray.

If the current logjam continues for another 3 years with Roger, Rafa, Novak and Murray, it will be the strongest generation.

Murray has since eclipsed this with 10 semifinals without a title. And he'll certainly add more semis (and hopefully a title).

Federer is already assured of passing Lendl here. No way is he dropping out of top-5 before March with a one slam, three masters and some other goodies in his points total.

Re: Most consecutive weeks in top 10

Welcome to the top 5 list Andy Murray!

Nadal surpasses John McEnroe at 7 years 6 months.

Connors/Lendl/Borg/McEnroe
Federer/Nadal/Djokovic/Murray

(-3 years, -2 years 6 months, -3 years 1 month, -3 years 4 months).

Assuming this current crop stays on top for another 3 years, that would set a record. Currently it's Connors/Lendl/Borg/McEnroe (all seen in 1981), and that's the strongest tennis era on record. This one is number 2.
