From his very first day at No. 1 (August 18, 2008) to Monday (November 4, 2019), it has been exactly eleven years and 77 days.
Rafa will battle for the status of year-end number one at the Nitto ATP Finals together with Djokovic. A player can earn a maximum of 1,500 points in London by posting an undefeated 5-0 record.
