This is amazing streak. Zverev has been at the top of tennis for so long, sometimes it feels he is already 30.

Nadal being protected by Covid rankings, may finish outside top 10 in the 2021 ATP race which in normal years would mirror the rankings come year end?

Hurkacz needs one win AND Norrie would have to reach Bercy QF for that to happen.

Casper Ruud being in the top 10 with just 3 wins in his entire career over the top 10 really show how weak the ATP is right now.

Federer and Djokovic both are ahead of Nadal in consecutive top 1,2,3,4,5 ranks.
Nadal though was epic in 2015 to stay inside top 10. Djokovic and Federer fell back to 20. Djokovic was out of top 20.

No hate, but I’m not sure I understand how you get there. Doesn’t that just mean that the guys are the top of the rankings are ridiculously dominant?
No? Karatsev is ranked #16 and has 5 top 10 wins this year alone including over #1 Djokovic and #2 Medvedev.

Tiafoe is ranked #41 yet has 5 top 10 wins in the last 4 months.

World #91 - 35 year old Pablo Andujar also has 2 top 10 wins.

It’s clear that Ruud won 5 Mickey Mouse tournaments to get into the top 10 and it shows by his lack of big wins.

Also depends on the length of the break. And the nature of the injury. With Some injuries you come back and are immediately fit. With other injuries it can take 3, 6, 9 (or more) months to fully recover. Just ask Delpotro or Murray.

Djokovic's in 2017 almost cost him 1 entire year, between Wim 2017 and clay 2018. It's clear he came back too soon and should have waited until the clay season.

Federer's 2016 was already one of his worst years and then the injury happened in Wimbledon. It easily explains why he was out of top10 at the end of the year.

Nadal's 2013 was one his best seasons with 2012. That's what kept him in the top10 after his long break in 2012. As for 2015 I don't think he was even injured... just in bad form but not bad enough to fall out of the 10.

Definitely. With bad forms and no injuries, I think all 3 are good enough to stay inside top 10. Nadal was able to stay inside top 10 with injuries as well. But coincidentally, his injuries were rarely severe during clay season. Only exception was 2016 where he withdrew from RG R3.

Or he played through the pain. Isn't that what Djokovic did for nearly a year when he had the elbow injury? Didn't do him any favors.

Falsely edited...Federer has 734 weeks at top 10 behind Nadal and connors. Zverev has a long way to even catch him.

Nadal post US Open was either ridiculously crap or injured 80% of his career which is why he’s at the top of the list. Sometimes it pays to be inconsistent like that, no points to defend late on = no major rankings slip.

I feel like Zverev is at every tournament. It is good that he shows up. Unlike team sports, where they play a certain number of games and you get to see your favorite teams play. Tennis is brutal. Your favorite player may not play many tournaments and/or lose in the early rounds. Great job Zverev
