After 18 years ranked as one of the best 10 players in the world, it’s the end of an era for Rafael Nadal. The Spanish icon has paid the price for an injury plagued 2023, having not played since being hampered by a hip injury in his Australian Open defeat to Mackenzie McDonald. The longest top 10 streak in ATP history began in April 2005, shortly before Nadal landed his first Grand Slam title at the French Open.

Since then the Spaniard has written his name in the tennis history books and marked himself out as a true legend of the game. With 22 Grand Slam titles and a work ethic lauded by many across the globe there is no doubting what he has brought. But all good things come to an end and his drop out of the top 10 could signal the beginning of the end.

To sum up just how remarkable his stint in the top 10 has been in terms of its longevity there are eight things we’ve picked out that didn’t exist the last time Nadal dropped outside of world’s top 10. All are very familiar to us and feel like they’ve been a part of our lives for a while now, showing just how long Nadal has been at the top of his game.

Twitter
Nadal was only 18 when he made his way into the top 10, but Twitter, believe it or not, wasn’t even born. That social media phenomenon officially kicked off on March 21 in 2006, with Nadal himself joining the platform some five years later. He’s since amassed 15.7 million followers.

UBER
Fair to assume that Nadal doesn’t have to rely on using Uber’s services when he’s at top tournaments around the world. But nor could he for the six years that proceeded his breakthrough year. The concept officially launched in San Francisco in 2011.
