Nadal in ATP top 10 for 800th straight week, 2021 ATP Ranking

Rafael Nadal becomes the 1st player in ATP top 10 for 800th successive week, in tennis history.



Rafael Nadal yesterday became the first player to be ranked in the ATP top 10 for 800 consecutive weeks, a run spanning more than 15 years. 


The world number two broke Jimmy Connors’ previous record of 789 straight weeks in the top 10 in November.

 The Spaniard,  first broke into the top 10 in April 2005, shortly before winning the first of his 13 French Open titles. 

The 34-year-old is still over two-and-a-half years short of matching Roger Federer’s record of spending 931 weeks in total in the top 10. 




There were no changes at the top of the rankings as players prepare for the Australian Open next month. 

Some of the sport’s biggest stars were among those told they would get no “special treatment” yesterday, with 72 players stuck in hotel quarantine in Australia after four Covid-19 cases on the chartered planes which flew players to the country.
