Rafael Nadal marked his 200th career week at the top of the ATP rankings Monday, becoming the sixth player to spend that much time at No. 1.
The Spanish superstar joins Roger Federer (310 weeks), Pete Sampras (286), Novak Djokovic (275), Ivan Lendl (270) and Jimmy Connors (268).
Nadal, who replaced Djokovic at No. 1 on Nov. 4, finished the season with a 58-7 match record. At 33, he is the oldest player to finish the year at No. 1 in the history of the rankings (since 1973).
It is the fifth time Nadal has finished the season in the top spot, tied for second most all-time (Connors, Federer and Djokovic) behind Sampras’ six times.
He won four titles in 2019, including his 18th and 19th Grand Slam singles championships at the French Open and U.S. Open.
