FedEx Reliability Zone: Top 10 Records

FedEx Reliability Zone: Current Top 10 Records Records

Nadal© Getty ImagesRafael Nadal has a 5-1 record against Top 10 opponents in 2013.

ATPWorldTour.com takes a look at Top 10 records (since 1973), using the FedEx ATP Reliability Index.

Being a member of the Top 10 in the Emirates ATP Rankings over a 12-month period is not only about being physically and mentally strong, but also playing consistently on multiple surfaces.

Rafael Nadal has competed in six ATP World Tour tournaments and reached six finals (4-2 titles overall) since his return to the ATP World Tour in February, going 5-1 against Top 10 players.

Over the past 12 months*, Nadal has compiled a 12-1 record (.923) against his Top 10 rivals (as of 2 May 2013) to lead the FedEx ATP Reliability Index with the best winning percentage.

Novak Djokovic is second overall among current ATP World Tour players with a 24-9 mark (.727) in the past 12 months, which includes a 15-1 record against his fellow Top 10 players since he lost the 2012 US Open final to Andy Murray, who is .632 over the past 12 months.

Jonas Bjorkman told ATPWorldTour.com, "If Novak is fresh in his body he can do exactly the same as he did 2011." Gene Mayer adds, "Djokovic continues to improve. He has adopted an incredibly scientific approach to monitoring his progress."

Roger Federer is No. 4 with a 12-11 (.522) record, followed by Tommy Haas at 5-5 (.500) among currently ATP World Tour stars.

Former World No. 5 Tommy Robredo told ATPWorldTour.com, "Tactically, you have to be more astute against Top 10 players. There is no point in going into a match with one game plan. Djokovic, Murray, Federer and Nadal, particularly, are quick to spot weaknesses and a drop in your level.

"For me, the key is to prepare in the same way you do for every match. You have nothing to lose, as your Top 10 opponent is the favourite, but you must concentrate and adjust to the flow of the match. When I was in the Top 10, there was pressure, but my status gave me confidence. It was what I had worked for."

Here is a look at the career Top 10 records of current members of the elite. Interestingly, Nadal has the best career winning percentage against Top 10 players.

Top 10 Player Wins Losses Total (Wins Percentage)
Roger Federer 211 92 303 (.696)
