Re: Players in Number 1 in singles and doubles at the same time?
Edberg never was in doubles Top 10 after 1988., but he was single number 2 and doubles number 1 at same point, and at really young age too
In late 1996. Kafelnikov was singles number 3 and doubles number 5, he will for good be last player who won both titles at one Major, also last player with at least 25 ATP titles in singles and doubles
At the age of 18 Boris Becker was number 4 in singles and number 6 in doubles, also nice score for a kid
For older players, problem is we don't have doubles ranking, but in the 70's there were many great single/doubles players. Stan Smith won more than 35 ATP titles in both singles and doubles, with also more than 550 match wins in both categories
