General Performance Index©

(GPI: General Performance Index): "It is an in-dex that measures the performance that a ten-nis player has had in a given period of time." This index, not shown here, is used to make the "General Performance Ranking© or GPI Ranking© ".

In this report, we have the first quarterly data of the 2019 season corresponding to the per-formance of the 50 best players according to the GPI Ranking©. In this period, the podium is made up of Stefanos Tsitsipas (GRE), Daniil Medvedev (RUS) and Roger Federer (SUI), in positions 1, 2 and 3 respectively of the General Performance Ranking©.

The ATP Ranking that has been taken for this report is on April 1st, 2019.

Other outstanding players in the Top 10 of the GPI Ranking© are John Isner (USA), Felix Auger-Aliassime (CAN), Guido Pella (ARG), Denis Shapovalov (CAN), Radu Albot (MDA), Kei Nishikori (JPN) and Andreas Seppi (ITA). For the rest of the Top 50 see ta-ble 1 please.

We already have the reports for January, Feb-ruary, March and the quarterly of the GPI Ranking© to get an idea of the players that are standing out in this 2019 season.

In this report of the first quarterly of the Top 50 of the GPI Ranking© there are not three Top 10 of the ATP Ranking, Dominic Thiem (5), Kevin Anderson (7) and Juan Martin Del Po-tro (9). Although Thiem was ranked 7th in the March GPI Ranking©, he does not appear in the Top 30 of the GPI Ranking© for January and February. Kevin Anderson was 19th in January and 26th in March in the GPI Rank-ing©. In both cases, their performances did not reach them to be included in the Top 50 of the GPI Ranking© of the first 2019 quarterly sea-son. Dominic Thiem will surely improve his performance in the clay season and Kevin Anderson will do the same in the grass sea-son, surely. Regarding Juan Martin Del Po-tro, he has not been able to participate in sev-eral tournaments due to an injury to his right knee.

Four Top 10 of the ATP Ranking are in the Top 10 of the GPI Ranking© for this first quar-terly (table 1).
It unusual the performance of Rafael Nadal (2) that only reached the position 30th in the GPI Ranking© and Alexander Zverev (3) who is 32th in the mentioned GPI Ranking©. Above all, the latter, the young German, who in the 2018 season obtained the No. 1 position in the GPI Ranking©.

Regarding Tsitsipas, Medvedev and Fede-rer, the three are included in the Top 10 of the GPI Ranking© of the 2018 season, showing their regularity in the high performance. At that time, they obtained the positions 3, 10 and 9 respectively in the 2018 GPI Ranking©.

Stefanos Tsitsipas is having an outstanding performance and his projection continues be-ing very promising. At the time of the prepara-tion of this report, Stefanos Tsitsipas ob-tained his title of champion of the 2019 Millen-nium Estoril Open defeating the Uruguayan Pablo Cuevas by 6-3, 7-6 (4) in the final, which confirms his promising projection that we have been commenting since the 2018 season about this young Greek.

On the other hand, the Russian Daniil Medvedev is aiming at that select group, Top 10, of the world tennis and it is probable that this year he could reach to belong to the same one or will be near of it. We will see how he will play in the clay and grass season. These two players are very young and belong to the gen-erational change.

Regarding the Master Roger Federer, he is an admirable athlete, unique and unrepeata-ble. Federer is talent in its purest essence, he is anticipation and intelligence applied to this wonderful sport, "Federer is the Tennis".

Next, the tables are presented where they ap-pear the performance in the different aspects, services, returns, break points, etc. of this quarterly. Starting with table 1, which synthe-sizes all aspects of the following tables and presents the Top 50 of the GPI Ranking©.
