Imagine my surprise when I typed in the ATP homepage and got this. The page automatically defaulted to the ATP index page after 10 seconds. You can click on the image above and see if it still comes up. I've no idea how long it will run.
Anyone know if this has ever been done before? I mean, I know January 2004 was the last time there was a new world No. 1, but I don't recall Andy Roddick or Roger Federer getting this kind of ATP love when they took over the top spot.
This is not a complaint, mind you. After being No. 2 for more consecutive weeks than any player in history, the gesture seems appropriate.
But I was still surprised.
Congratulations Rafa, indeed.
