    I'm not-more stunned at the numbers, while I didn't track those figures (or know the metrics) the competitiveness of this era is pretty significant. They also are tied for most Grand Slams.

    I was a kid admiring Andre Agassi/Sampras, who're eclipsed by today's stars but I've never seen tennis this much of a (non-clear dominant, alternating champs per major) space, and 1-10 being so close to one another. Granted, I take a season off at times and didn't pay attention to these figures but it makes sense in who else is competing. Nadal likely was still in top ten any number of these weeks.

    Also I'd like to see the consecutive week figures.

    Who has won most Grand Slams in men's tennis? Explaining why Novak Djokovic is close to making history at US Open - Yeah, Nadal clears everyone else on clay.

    Tiafoe probably played the best tennis of his career this week

    he keeps up what he's done the past couple of months (cuts out some of the silly decisions even more)...2022 is looking very bright for him

    He's still only 22. I think he can be a top 20 player by end of next year. Win a couple indoor tournaments.

    He has great instincts on the court. Great overall tactical play..just needs the consistency and a touch more patience. He mostly fixed his serving issue I raised in this thread like 5 years ago and it added mph like I expected

    Joker got it done, but he's been looking uncharacteristically shaky since the USO

    still the favorite in any tournament he enters but I might give the edge to Med they meet up here in Paris

    Djokovic has had Nadal and Federer plus others.

    What are you smoking? Last time Federer was year end #1 was 09, what's his excuse?

    The way some of you go out of your way to downplay the achievements of Djokovic is laughable.

    yeah but he hasn't. c'mon now. that's like saying Fed had Sampras and Agassi as competition :russ: .

    "plus others" :mjlol:. compare oranges and oranges. joke doesn't have competition that can sweep up majors on the regular and dominate the rest of the field because Fed and Rafa (ex French) are Agassi and Sampras status now.

    It's really not, Djokovic has had had far more competition than Fed has had.

    Go and look at who Djokovic has had to beat to win the majority of his slams compared to Federer, it's not even a debate man. Djokovic has dominated a much more difficult era of tennis in comparison.
