I thought it would be interesting to find out which/how many players placed in the top 10 during the past decade. So I did a bit of research and I put it in a quiz if you'd like to guess them.

I was also asked to do a similar quiz for 1990-1999. Five fewer players entered the Top 10 in this decade, compared to the 2000s. Quiz can be found here:
