    World no.1 Djokovic won the Australian Open, World no.2 Nadal won the French Open, World no 3 Federer won Wimbledon and World no.4 Murray won the US Open.

    This has never happened before in the history of tennis.

    Just thought I'd let you guys know.

    They are undoubtedly the most orderly and efficient top 4 in tennis history! :)

    I'm confused why you said no.2 Nadal and no.3 Federer, are you saying by the time they won the tournament?

    Here's the current standing:
    1 Novak Djokovic
    Won 2008 circuit finale in Shanghai
    9,910
    2 Roger Federer
    Six-time champion qualified for 11th time
    8,905
    3 Rafael Nadal
    2010 runner-up qualified for eighth time
    6,840
    4 Andy Murray
    British favourite goes for fifth shot at title
    6,730

    Those are RACE numbers, not rankings. Murray is currently ranked 3.

    They were the rankings they held at the time they won those tournaments.
