Jannik Sinner's arrival at World No. 1 leaves Novak Djokovic with a total of 428 weeks as the ranking leader. With this, the Big-4, composed of Nole, Roger Federer, Rafa Nadal, and Andy Murray, completed the almost unreal amount of 988 weeks at the top, which is 19 combined years.
The Serbian had a streak of 39 consecutive weeks at No. 1, after winning the title at the 2023 US Open, reaching a total of 428 weeks, a position he first achieved in 2011. The 24-time Grand Slam champion holds the absolute record for weeks at No. 1 so far.

Incredible Record of the Big-4

It's not just Djokovic who contributes a significant number of weeks at the top of the rankings. Roger Federer is second historically, having held the No. 1 position for 310 weeks, first in 2004 and last in 2018. Below him are Nadal's 209 weeks, first in 2008 and last in 2020.
The only player who managed to interrupt the supremacy of Federer-Nadal-Djokovic between 2004 and 2022 was the 3-time Grand Slam champion Andy Murray, who held the No. 1 position for 41 weeks between 2016 and 2017. The record of the four players sums up to 988 weeks, equivalent to a total of 19 years.
