Surely this is a typo.
ATP Rankings the week of: February 14, 2011
1. Nadal (slams won in last 52 weeks: 3)
2. Federer (slams won in last 52 weeks: 0)
3. Djokovic (slams won in last 52 weeks: 1)
"Slamless" Fed was ahead of Novak even though Novak was holding a slam.
The rankings are what they are. Whoever holds the No. 1 ranking probably already won a slam at some point in their career, which more than justifies the top ranking. Whether you won one in the past 52 weeks is irrelevant.
