Smile Re: Maiden ATP crown - numbers (long list from Doumbia to Spadea)

Yes, you´re right, but if someone wins ATP tournament in his first appearance, that can be only luck (and it´s usually on small tournament, with weaker players). It´s difference between tournament and TOURNAMENT. And since year 2000 it´s different situation than before, now top players must play chosen tournaments, before 2000 no tournament was mandatory (if someone didn´t want to play some Grand Slams, it was his problem, there were no ranking penalties for that, just simple counting of best 14 results from any tournaments in the rankings (I mean 90´s now)). But nice stats anyway
