Rafael Nadal celebrates 800 weeks in the Top-10 of world tennis

Another record for Rafael Nadal. The Spanish, second in the ATP after Novak Djokovic, celebrates 800 consecutive weeks in the Top-10 of world tennis, in the list published this Monday.

During this 15-year period, Spanish has spent most of the time in first place (209 weeks) or second (361).

He is the player in history who has been the longest in the Top-10 ahead of Jimmy Connors (789), Roger Federer (734), Ivan Lendl (619) and Pete Sampras (565).

Djokovic is a long way off, as his 10-year run in the Top-10 (between 2007 and 2017) was cut short by injury. He returned to the top ten in July 2018.
