I thought such a table might be interesting and useful, especially when compiling statistics on other things. Correct as for December 7, 2020.

[Note: the official ATP line is that cumulative ranking stats were frozen for 22 weeks during the COVID-19 affected 2020 season, so that is reflected here]

Arranged by total weeks in top 10:

Now updated to the start of 2012.

Tipsarevic is a new entry.

Joachim Johansson has now retired. Also, I removed Mark Philippoussis as the rumours of a comeback never materialised into anything significant.

Code:
[B]Player			Country	First in Top 10	Last in Top 10	Weeks in top 10	Highest Ranking[/B]
Mark Philippoussis	AUS	29/03/1999	01/03/2004	29		9

Updated to the present week.

Isner is a new entry

Fernando Gonzalez and Ivan Ljubicic have now retired. Thomas Muster has now effectively retired after his brief return, not playing even a challenger since 2011, with no immediate plans to resume his comeback.

One thing really remarkable is that eight of the current top-10 has been there for 133 weeks or more. I don't think this has ever happened before. And none of the eight appear vulnerable either, so the number will surely rise above 150.

This is true, although not consecutively. In my opinion, it represents a strong era in which it is hard to break into the highest rankings because the best players are generally so consistent.

I can't believe it's been over a year since I updated this page. Since then, Milos Raonic is the only new addition to the list while David Nalbandian, James Blake,and Nicolas Massu have all retired. I have amended a couple of the other records as on checking a couple were fractionally out.

Code:
[B]Player			Country	First in Top 10	Last in Top 10	Weeks in top 10	Highest Ranking[/B]
David Nalbandian	ARG	27/01/2003	16/02/2009	232		3
James Blake		USA	20/03/2006	19/01/2009	131		4
Nicolas Massu		CHL	13/09/2004	20/09/2004	2		9
