General Performance Index©
(GPI: General Performance Index): "It is an index that measures the performance that a tennis 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 second quarterly data of the 2019 season corresponding to the performance of the 50 best players according to the GPI Ranking©. In this period, the podium is made up of Rafael Nadal (ESP), Matteo Barrettini (ITA) and Stefanos Tsitsipas (GRE), in positions 1, 2 and 3 respectively of the General Performance Ranking© (table 1).
The following tournaments, which correspond to the second quarterly (April, May and June), have been included for the determination of the Top 50 of the General Performance Ranking©. The tournaments have been developed on all surfaces, asphalt, clay and grass (Wimbledon not included here). Although, most tournaments were developed on clay and grass. Asphalt tournaments, considered in this report, correspond to matches played in Group II of the Davis Cup and most of these players have an ATP Ranking greater than 200 or do not have an ATP Ranking, the only exception is Romanian Marius Copil with ATP Ranking 80 (on July 1, 2019).

The ATP Ranking that has been taken for this report is on July 1st, 2019.
Other players featured in the Top 10 of the GPI Ranking© are Taylor Fritz (USA), Alexander Zverev (GER), Jan-Lennard Struff (GER), Pierre-Hugues Herbert (FRA), Christian Garin (CHI), Benoit Paire (FRA) and Novak Djokovic (SRB). For the rest of the Top 50 see table 1.
At a first glance, we observe in table 1 that within the Top 10 of the GPI Ranking© there are only 4 players belonging to the Top 10 of the ATP Ranking and there are 39 Top 50 of the ATP Ranking within the Top 50 of GPI Ranking©. The only player with an ATP Rank-ing greater than 100 who has been able to sneak into the Top 50 of the GPI Ranking©, is the Japanese Taro Daniel (109). This gives the idea of how difficult the competition in this individualistic sport.
Another way to see the data is in Table 2, where has been taken the Top 50 of the ATP Ranking with its corresponding GPI Rank-ing©. Regard the Top 50 of the ATP Ranking, the only player with a GPI Ranking© greater than 100 has been the South African Kevin Anderson (129) who, due to his injuries, did not get a good performance in this second quarter of the 2019 season.
Table 1 is headed by the living legend, Rafael Nadal, a player of unique physical and mental characteristics, whose performance on clay courts has brought the records to the strato-sphere. His great performance in the second quarter of the season has allowed him to be the best player in the world. Nadal has been escorted by Italian Matteo Berrettini and the young Greek Stefanos Tsitsipas. Berrettini has made merit to occupy the second place in the GPI Ranking© of the second quarterly, his outstanding results have been: champion at the Hungarian Open, champion at the Mercedes Cup, runner-up at the BMW Open and Semifinalist at the Noventi Open. Regarding Stefanos Tsitsipas, he was champion at the Millennium Estoril Open, runner-up at the Mutua Madrid Open, fourth round at Roland Garros and quarterfinals at the Fever-Tree Championships, among his most outstanding results of this second quarterly. On the other hand, Rafael Nadal won his 12th crown at Roland Garros, champion of the Internazionali BNL d´Italia, semifinals at the Mutua Madrid Open, Barcelona Open Banc Sabadell and Rolex Monte-Carlo Masters.
