This is great research - we need more such stats on these Blast threads. Thanks!

Go Nole, Almagro, Rafa & Qureshi/Bopanna!

Re: Career-High Ranking Leaders

Thanks and it's funny how it seems to be easier to be n. 1 than to be n. 10.

well obviously for the number 10 position you have to take those in number ten and add all those who reached positions 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9 to get the real number.

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

Of course. It's bleeding obvious that all the players who reached number 1, were number 2, 3, 4 or 5 and so on at some stage of their careers. But that's not what I meant.

I meant, it's easier, or should I say, more common, to have a career-high ranking at number 1 than having a career-high ranking at number 10.

It will be good to give a player a WC to have 128 players and create a tournament to see who is the best

Re: Career-High Ranking Leaders

Is this about reaching top 10 or ending the year in top 10?

Re: Career-High Ranking Leaders

Just reaching Top 10, I believe.

The Wit and Wisdom of the Tennis Journalist, Indian Wells 2004

ROGER FEDERER: Yeah, I remember this one time when I went on a vacation on the Maldives. That was in the year 2001, I think. I went to this spa. I went to walk around with my girlfriend. I walk in, and we want to book a spa. This guy goes, "AHH, I remember you. You beat Sampras. I saw you on TV." That was like, really, how can you remember me? This guy has probably never been off his island and still knows me. I was a little bit shocked. Then I went to play tennis with him because he was actually the tennis teacher. It was nice.

Q. Were you naked at the time in the spa?

ROGER FEDERER: No. It was at the front desk. I didn't walk in naked.

Re: Career-High Ranking Leaders

A few of the active player's highest rankings are incorrect due to improvement (So its not your fault).

Davydenko #3.
