The world No 2 broke Jimmy Connors’ previous record of 789 straight weeks in the top 10 in November.

Rafael Nadal first broke into the top 10 in April 2005, shortly before winning the first of his 13 French Open titles.

NADAL IS STILL SHORT OF ROGER FEDERER’S ALL-TIME RECORD

The 34-year-old is still over two-and-a-half years short of matching Roger Federer’s record of spending 931 weeks in total in the top 10.

There were no noteworthy changes at the top of the rankings as players prepare for the Australian Open next month.
