2000-2010 Best Players & Grand Slam Rankings

So you can kill some time before the Australian Open starts and see who are the best performers in Grand Slams, I've developed a list of the top 60 players from 2000 to 2010 along with their Grand Slam ranking:



For the top 30 you going to have to visit my article . I constructed the list by adding all year-end ranking points earned between and including the year 2000 and 2010, after transforming the 2009 and 2010 points (needed because of the change in ranking system between 2008 and 2009). For more details of the method, see here. The results are completely objective and I believe they are pretty fair. The Grand Slam points I added and transformed in a similar way.
In my article I also included a list of the top 20 from 2009 and 2010 and players' Grand Slam ranking in those years. This list did not require any transformation so it should be even more accurate. Comments welcome!

Good stuff Statracket.

Surprised to see Robredo at number 12 without a single grand slam semi.....

Interesting to see Davydenko's % being pretty low for a top player.

Some how reading this article I got led to "Did Halep’s breast reduction help her tennis career?"

Robin Bo Carl Söderling

Good observation. Consistency is obviously what gets him there. James Blake at number 20 is the next highest player without a Grand Slam semi. Massu at number 44 is the highest without a Grand Slam quarter-final.

lol Yeah, Davydenko is definitely the most successful player this century to have not reached a Grand Slam final.

Re: 2000-2010 Best Players & Grand Slam Rankings

Soderling has gotten pretty much all of his points the last two seasons, interesting how he is so low on the total list yet has found more success in Slams than many of the players above. Davydenko with 18k(ATP) points and pretty much no success in Slams staggering.

Re: 2000-2010 Best Players & Grand Slam Rankings

Thanks to those who responded .

Two of the best Grand Slam performers considering their overall rank are Tsonga and Baghdatis. Tsonga is 51st overall and 30th in Slams and Baghdatis is one spot behind in each. Baghdatis in 2006 was amazing; I'm not sure if anyone else has ever reached a Grand Slam final and semi-final in the same season and still not finished in the year-end top 10.

Re: 2000-2010 Best Players & Grand Slam Rankings

Thanks very much. More illuminating statistics. At the time (that he was a top 5 player) it was frustrating to me how poor Ljubicic was in slams, not as a fan of him, just as a fan of seeing high profile matches which tend to include top players going deep. In retrospect the extent to which Ljubicic flopped on the biggest stage is laughable. Considering that at a time when Nadal was beatable only Federer was clearly ahead of Ivan on hardcourts, he should've taken advantage of his form. He didn't and as such his fate in tennis history is sealed.

Champions deserve whatever they win playing within the laws of the game
