Nole became the first player in the history of ATP, found outside the Top 20 and managed to finish No. 1 in the World Ranking the same year.
The fact that he won 21 seats in the same season and finished at the top is not the only record he did.
He became the tennis player with the worst beginning in a year that makes Year-end No. 1 (5 wins – 5 defeats), and the only player to finish in No. 1 and has no winning title in the first 7 months of the season, until Wimbledon!
