Probably before this century
There weren't any rankings then though were there?

I would look at late 70s / early 80s AO for candidates. I guess someone will check this if they haven't already.

It has been an extraordinary year in men's tennis, that much is for sure.

The bright news if you want to spin it is past rankings, they aren't historically terrible.
Anderson 10
Delpo 4
Dolg 13
Mayer 21
2x 50 1x 85

It is what it is. Grass is worse, there's been no real grass court players since the 90's except Federer, then there been no grass/carpet/wood/fast HC Tourneys to make a living on since the 90's. Clay and Slow HC where it's at as a professional making a living.

Other sports are trying to reduce their time to be relevant with the time.
I don't understand why tennis authorities are trying to make games longer :confused:

PC: I never watch rafa/joker/muzza's match on TV. I check scores on net and then highlights. And highlights don't do justice to dustin, monfils, kyrgios' matches so I watch them live.
