Nadal and Federer wouldn't share the Top 10 after a long time

Last April, it was 16 years since the day Rafael Nadal, flaming champion for the 12th year in Barcelona, ​​reached the Top 10 of the world rankings and since then, he and Roger Federer remain in the ATP elite. Not for much longer.

Nadal is 35 years old, Federer 40. That does not imply that they are not among the best on the professional circuit and playing for more glory, beyond the physical problems they went through in their careers.

They are, in short, two of the top Grand Slam champions, with 20 titles each. Federer reached that historic mark at the 2018 Australian Open and was equaled by Nadal at Roland Garros 2020. Although, with Novak Djokovic safe, the mark could take a backseat at the next US Open.
