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© ".

The following tournaments of Grand Slams, which correspond to the 2019 season, have
been included for the determination of the Top 50 of the General Performance Rank-ing©:

•    Australian Open – Grand Slam (hard).
•    Roland Garrós – Grand Slam (red clay).
•    Wimbledon – Grand Slam (grass).
•    US Open – Grand Slam (hard).

The ATP Ranking of the players, which has been considered for this report, is on Sep-tember 16th, 2019.

Of the 187 players, who participated in these 4 Grand Slams tournaments and who com-pose the sample that has been considered for statistical calculations, we reiterate, only the 50 with the best performance are ex-posed in this report.

We highlight, as usual, the podium of the 2019 season of the Grand Slams formed by the Big 3, Rafael Nadal (ESP), Novak Djokovic (SRB) and Roger Federer (SUI), in positions 1, 2 and 3 of the GPI Ranking©, respectively.

Other prominent players who complete the TOP 10 of the GPI Ranking© of the Grand Slams of the 2019 season are: Kei Nishi-kori (JPN), Daniil Medvedev (RUS), David Goffin (BEL), Roberto Bautista Agut (ESP), Stan Wawrinka (SUI), Alexander Zverev (GER) and Diego Schwartzman (ARG).

Once again, the trio formed by the Big 3: Rafa, Nole and Roger, have demonstrated despite their age, they are still fighting, and they are winning battle after battle, in a sce-nario of very high competition. NextGen players (as the ATP calls them) have already begun to appear with greater presence in leading positions. Daniil Medvedev and Alexander Zverev are the standard-bearers of this new generation of tennis players that exceed 1.90 m. and hit the ball with great power taking advantage of the large lever of their long arms.

Mentioning the outstanding player of the 4 Grand Slams this season is almost a formali-ty. Rafael Nadal is the one who has ob-tained the best performance, playing 26 matches and winning 24 of them. Djokovic and Federer escort him by completing the golden podium. Although I try to be objec-tive, I cannot avoid admire these three ex-ceptional athletes. They are wonderful, unique. Together, they have won 55 Grand Slams in the last 15 years.

At the time of preparing this report the Laver Cup had already been played and, for the first time, when I looked at the photo of Federer and Nadal together, encouraging Alexander Zverev, in the last match that led to the victory to the Team Europa, it was really exciting. The other two that appear in the photo are Stefanos Tsitsipas and Dom-inic Thiem, who will surely have their mo-ment of maximum glory when the Big 3 re-tires, until then, there are Rafa, Nole and Roger to continue enjoying.

Below, as is usual, the tables with their re-spective performance ranks or GPI Rank-ing© in each aspect analyzed of the 50 play-ers who achieved the highest performance during the four Grand Slams.

All of the tables, exposed in this report, have been headed by Nadal, Djokovic and Federer. There are no doubts who are the chiefs of the Grand Slams.

Also, I have made an annex with tiebreaks, aces and double faults. Anyway, those who have served and returned better has been the Big 3.
