Re: Most consecutive weeks in top 10

To give you an idea of just how strong the Connors, Lendl, Borg, McEnroe era was - Federer gives 2 years up to Connors, Nadal gives 2 months up to Lendl, Novak picks up 7 months on Borg, and Murray gives up 2 years and 6 months up to McEnroe. That is 4 years and 1 month. Only Novak's streak in the top 5 remains.

As for the top 10 - Fed, Nadal, Djokovic are 1 year and 9 months total, about 7 months combined - with none of them falling out to surpass the other three. With McEnroe/Murray, that is 3 years total, or a year with all three combined.

Also McEnroe probably has more weeks at the top 10 then I have him listed for. Litotes can help?

Amazing numbers.

I think you forgot to update Djokovic on the top-5 list.

Re: Most consecutive weeks in top 10

I've updated the top 10 list, which is why I created this list so many years ago.

Federer is just a year and 4 months shy from the record.

I won't change anything until the ATP site stops running like piss.

I have no idea who's the morons advising them, but their site is horrible for actually accumulating statistics now. Thanks to the 'revisions' that make it hard to read and see. They needed to change nothing, and changing shit made the site crap.

The ATP site is just sad. I can confirm Djokovic has been top-5 consecutive since Jun 11th 2007, though. I copied his ranking history long ago.

Djokovic streak on the top5 has started on Jun 11th 2007, so when you did your rankings (15/06/19) he was already 8 years on the top5.

Re: Most consecutive weeks in top 10

Sorry if I'm mistaken, but just found some wrong data:

Djokovic streak on the top5 has started on Jun 11th 2007, so when you did your rankings (15/06/19) he was already 8 years on the top5.
now 8y1m, and counting - Will pass Borg, but still a little bit of stretch to Sampras/Nadal/Lendl.

He is in the top10 since March 19th 2007, so he should also be on the top10 of the top10 (in 9th place, but guarantee to move to 7th)!.


Rafael Nadal also was 10 years on the top5 (from 2005 May 9th to 2015 May 4th). Lendl was from jan 10th 1982 to jan 20th 1992, so Lendl secures his 3rd place by two weeks!!! As he entered the top10 on april 2005, he now is approaching 10 years 3 months. I guess he can just hold on to pass Sampras if we don't have any GS surprise finalist (or Simon beats Federer at Wimbledon QF wednesday.

other info for trivia:

Federer entered the top10 on October 14th 2002, so can reach Connors if he stays on the top10 by the end of 2017. Tough, but I guess the can stay competitive and reach QF of GS in the next two years regularly and SF of Masters, so is possible.

And in the doubles individual ranking, which is twice as difficult to hold, Mike and Bob Bryan are in the top5 for over ten years (since april 18th 2005!) with no signs of leaving. And they are in the top10 since September 9th 2002, over one month before Fed!! in fact they are regularly in the top5 since 2003 leaving for just one month in 2005.

Re: Most consecutive weeks in top 10

Federer will pass Lendl in the top 10. His run in the top 5 lasted just 7 more months than Lendl's.

Soon, in April, we will see what I started this thread for - his quest for Connors and the 15 years in the top 10 consecutive.

Re: Most consecutive weeks in top 10

Federer if he can prevent a fast decline and if no young guns start destrying the Big 4 has a chance here.
Hes a safe bet for top4 year end spot.

Yep. From rankings started 23/8-73 until 2/10-88. Will be tough to beat for sure.
