Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal, Roger Federer ends 1-2-3



With Novak Djokovic in No. 1, Rafael Nadal in No. 2 and Roger Federer in No. 3 on Monday, the tennis runners are leading on the final parts of the ATP per season for the seventh time.

This is the first time, however, that all those three men have spent some time in No. 1 during the same year. The seven changes were the largest since 1999, when there were eight.

Djokovic won Wimbledon and Ugor Ugor. in 2018, while Federer takes Opening Australia, Nadal won the title in the French Open.

They counted for Night. 1-3 in the final sites in 2007-11 and 2014 too.

In the case of Djokovic, he notes the fifth time that he has closed a year in a place and place, following 2011, 2012, 2014 and 2015. Only Pete Sampras, with the end of six finishes year No.1, who did more often.

The 31-year-old from Serbia is also the oldest man to be number 1 at the end of the season and the first one to finish on the site after being outside the top 20 during the year – or outside the top 10 at the end of the previous year (it was No. 12 in 2017).

Simona Halep came to the top of the season at No. 1 at the WTA sites for the second year running; he picked up that place more than a month ago. Angelique Kerber was No. 2 among women, followed by Caroline Wozniacki, Elina Svitolina and Naomi Osaka.

Djokovic left Nadal three weeks ago; the Spanish did not compete anywhere after stopping because of a painful knee during his U.S. Open weekend. in September against Juan Martin del Potro. Nadal had arthroscopic surgery on her right ankle this month.

Nadal collects a season in No. 1 or No. 2 for the 10th time, but only Federer's 11th anniversary.

In the meantime, Federer is the top three for a 14th minute record. The 37-year-old of Switzerland has won 20 Grand Slam single championships, the most by a man, and then Nadal with 17, then Djokovic and Sampras retired with 14 apiece.

The remainder of the top 10 ATPs for 2018: No. 4 Alexander Zverev, No. 5 of the Pottery, No. 6 Kevin Anderson, No. 7 Marin Cilic, No. 8 Dominic Thiem, No. 9 Kei Nishikori and No. 10 John Isner.

Del Potro was the second in U.S. Open, Anderson at Wimbledon, Cilic Opens Australia, and Thiem in the French Opening.

Anderson nor Isner had never finished a year in the top 10, while the Potro was back in that group for the first time since 2013.
