When was the last time the Top 3 ran out of Federer and Nadal?

Epoch change. Pass of the time. With the defeat of Rafael Nadal in the ATP 500 in Washington and the tumultuous present of Roger Federer, the Top 3 of the world rankings lost two of the best players in history.

Four years had to pass. Since May 29, 2017, the main positions of the ATP are left without two of their strongholds. The Swiss, at that time, was number five in the world and the Manacorí, fourth.

The time in which the ranking did not have one or the other at that time was from August 15, 2016 to the date mentioned above. That is, almost a year.

At that time, both players were not going through their best moments. The injuries suffered by both in that period prevented them from giving their best. Between 2015 and 2016 Federer only won six trophies (all in 2016 and none were Grand Slam) while Nadal won five between the two years, also without majors.

Now the 35-year-old manacorí and the 39-year-old Swiss (close to turning 40 and ranking 9th in the ATP ranking) again they face physical problems and their fall in the ranking is a consequence of this. Will they be able to resume the main positions of the world ranking?
