Ranking-Top 20

Ranking

The Top 20 ranking at the end of each season in years 2018-1973. Top 20’s are divided onto decades with statistical summaries, under every year additional notes (biggest national representation, number of left-handers, number of players with one-handed backhand, number of serve-and-volleyers). It must be said that S&V exposition is a bit tricky because there were players, who either changed tactics over years or were adapting different tactics within a year in regard of a surface they played on, therefore those numbers have to be regarded with a pinch of salt 😉

# In the picture Jimmy Connors – the legend of 70s & 80s, the man who finished the most years in the Top 20 – seventeen (16 consecutive years in the Top 10)! Federer overcame him in 2018…
RH – right-handed; LH – left-handed
DH – double-handed backhand; DBHS – double-handed from both sides; / – one-handed backhand
Blue – youngest player(s); Red – oldest player(s)
