This 2014 have been interesting as we have a shuffle of Top 10 players. Since the start of the year, the following players have been on the Top 10:

1. Djokovic
2. Nadal
3. Federer
4. Wawrinka
5. Berdych
6. Raonic
7. Ferrer
8. Del Potro
9. Dimitrov
10. Murray
11. Nishikori
12. Gulbis
13. Isner
14. Tsonga
15. Gasquet

Interestingly, the ones bold reached the Top 10 for the first time in their career, and also the first of their countries to be Top 10 ATP singles players. Has this been a record for some time, as the past have been full of European countries or Americans that have been the same? Also, who do you think would make their pioneer Top 10 for their country next, and which country?

Both Dimitrov and Gulbis are from European countries

Yup, but they seemed to have come from usual suspects, while it is could be a little surprising how there are few from Bulgaria (which had a WTA big tournament hosted on them in Sophia) and Latvia.
