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

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.

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:silly:

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

Davydenko #3.
