Hey. I originally posted a version of this table in the statistics thread but I thought you guys might find it interesting... it's a list of all active players who have ranked in the top 10.

This version is correct as of 07/02/2011. The original version which I shall continue to update can be found here (http://www.menstennisforums.com/showthread.php?t=176322).

Thanks for this Pipsy. Haas has such a wide span of years in the top 10 and such a good career high, but only 81 weeks in total :(.

Has Federer, Nadal, Djokovic and Murray been out of top 10 since they passed the threshold?

Awesome work!

Personally, I strongly dislike Andy Roddick, but what consistency! For having absolutely no clay game and suffering some serious injuries/ailments he has been insanely consistent. Roddick comes in a close 2nd on the "Screwed Over by Federer" list.

Seeing Roddick up there is the reason I was so rooting for him at Wimby 2009. He's no one slam wonder.

Seems kind of amazing to me that James Blake spent over two years in top ten, reaching as high as #4. Soderling just reached #4 and he seems to me to be a MUCH better player than Blake ever was. :shrug:

Because it was a mug era. Blake @ #4 and Davydenko @ #3 was just hilarious. You'd never see something as pathetic as that today.

Not really surprising given that he's as much out of the game as in :sobbing:

Nice work, pipsy :yeah:

You're forgetting how long Soderling was a real headcase - pre Magnus Norman
