Roger Federer to leave the Top Ten for the 2nd time in over 18 years

Roger Federer’s knee made news again, and not for the better. The Swiss announced that he will have to undergo surgery again, so it is still unknown how long he will be away from the courts. The precise thing is that it will leave the Top Ten.

Her Majesty first made the Top 10 on May 20, 2002. During the following weeks it was interspersed, until as of October 14 it remained uninterrupted for 14 years. It was only on Monday, November 7, 2016 that it fell to No. 16.

That year was also when his physical condition began to get complicated, increasingly punished by recurring injuries.

On January 30, 2017, that is almost three months later, managed to regain the Top 10 and did not come out again.

It should be noted that the intervention of the protected ranking It was a great relief for the Swiss, who allowed him to stay in the Top Ten this last time despite having had little action on the circuit.

Since from now on the ranking will return to normal and that Roger will be absent from the US Open and for the remainder of the season, he will be dropped into the top 10.

In this way, from October 14, 2002 to the present, 18 years, 10 months, and 1 day (6,880 days) have passed. During that period, only in two lapses did Federer drop out of the Top 10. Just amazing.
