The 22-time Major champion Rafael Nadal is spending his 673rd week in the top-3. Thus, the Spaniard has become the second player with that many weeks in the selected group, leaving Novak Djokovic on 672 and standing 77 behind the record holder Roger Federer.

Nadal has no points to defend for the rest of the season, looking good to finish the year in the top-3 and get more weeks in that group. Nadal cracked the top-3 following his first Major title at the 2005 Roland Garros. Rafa achieved that a couple of days after turning 19, and he is still a part of that group over 17 years later, proving his incredible consistency!

Nadal is the second-strongest link on the men’s Tour in 2022, behind his compatriot Carlos Alcaraz. Rafa conquered two Major titles this year, making a perfect start and winning four titles despite injuries.
