Nadal posted an outstanding result here – 7th from the beginning of Open Era and the best since Federer’s 2006.
Djokovic went from 1 to 2, Federer – from 2 to 6.
Tipsarevic, Monaco, Dolgopolov, Cilic left top 20.
Instead we have a resurgence of veterans – Haas, Youzhny, Fognini. And Dimitrov started to fulfill promises.
The best mover inside top 20 was Stan Wavrinka – from #20 to #7.
Best total Ranking in Slams (weight - 4.0):
del Potro, Juan Martin__485
Missing Oz and early exit at Wimbledon did not allow Nadal to headline this list. Novak continues to put money in the bank – his result is exactly like last year here. The best movers inside top 20 are again Stan Wavrinka – from # 14 in 2012 to # 6 in 2013 and Misha Youzhny – from #19 to #10.
Kohlschreiber, Tipsarevic, Cilic, Benneteau, Fish, Florian Mayer left top 20.
Janowicz, Robredo, Haas, Chardy, Seppi, Anderson moved in.
Rated_ranking_(weight - 2.5):
del Potro, Juan Martin_147,0526
Nadal continues to achieve historically significant results. This year replaced Novak’s 2012 as 10th best in this category since the beginning of Open Era. Federer had the worst result since 2002. Coincidentally it is still better than career best of such players as Wavrinka and Berdych, achieved this year.
Tipsarevic, Janowicz, Fish, Monaco, Isner left top 20.
Wawrinka, Haas, Youzhny, Robredo, Kevin Anderson went in.
Win-loss percentage in non-Slam tournaments (weight - 1.5):
del Potro, Juan Martin_76.79
Novak Djokovic posted significantly better percentage than last year, but in only moved him one place up, because Nadal again had an outstanding year.
Nicolas Mahut ventured in this rarified air on the strength of two tournament wins out of only 9 tournaments played.
Matches won in non-Slams events (weight – 0.7):
del Potro, Juan Martin_43
Very sharp decline of Federer here. Since I don’t care to investigate how long he was present at top 10 in all categories. Not anymore….
Win-loss percentage in Slams (weight - 2.5):
del Potro, Juan Martin_72.73
Djokovic posted exactly the same result as last year, but now it is good only for 3rd place, whereas last year it was the best.
Fish, Kohlschreiber, Tipsarevic, Nishikori, Federico Gil, Monfils, Benneteau moved out of top 20.
Youzhny, Seppi, Robredo, Anderson, Chardy, Haas, Janowicz moved in.
Only real new name here is Janowicz. He did not backup his Paris 2012 run in non-Slam tournaments, but reminded of himself with his semis run at Wimbledon.
Matches won in Slams (weight – 1.4):
del Potro, Juan Martin__8
Novak kept his first place here due to outstanding consistency. Notably David Ferrer won one more match than last year, but this time he broke the semis barrier and this propelled him to the 2nd place above former “top 4” members Murray, Nadal and Federer.
Even though Federer slipped from #3 to #6, Youzhny, Seppi, Haas and Robredo held the banner of the previous generation still high.
Tournaments won (weight – 2.0):
del Potro, Juan Martin_4
Since ATP calendar took its shape in 1990 and the number of tournaments in the calendar reduced, only a handful of players reached 10 or more tournament wins per season. This year Nadal again achieved this feat – for the 2nd time in his career.
% of tournaments won out of all entered (weight – 2.0):
del Potro, Juan Martin__21.05
Longest winning streaks (weight – 0.8):
del Potro, Juan Martin__8
Late season surge allowed Novak to top Nadal in this category.
Federer went from headlining this list in 2012 to leaving the top 20….
