Statistical information[edit]

Bob Bryan
Mike Bryan
Doubles World No. 1s Bob (left) and Mike Bryan (right) won their tenth and eleventh Grand Slam titles together at the Australian Open (def. Bhupathi/Paes) and at the Wimbledon Championships (def. Lindstedt/Tecău), tying the record of team titles in majors set by Australians Todd Woodbridge and Mark Woodforde in 2000.[5]

These tables present the number of singles (S), doubles (D), and mixed doubles (X) titles won by each player and each nation during the season, within all the tournament categories of the 2011 ATP World Tour: the Grand Slam tournaments, the ATP World Tour Finals, the ATP World Tour Masters 1000, the ATP World Tour 500 series, and the ATP World Tour 250 series.[4] The players/nations are sorted by: 1) total number of titles (a doubles title won by two players representing the same nation counts as only one win for the nation); 2) cumulated importance of those titles (one Grand Slam win equalling two Masters 1000 wins, one ATP World Tour Finals win equalling one-and-a-half Masters 1000 win, one Masters 1000 win equalling two 500 events wins, one 500 event win equalling two 250 events wins); 3) a singles > doubles > mixed doubles hierarchy; 4) alphabetical order (by family names for players).

To avoid confusion and double counting, these tables should be updated only after an event is completed. The tables are through to the tournaments completed in the week of 31 October.

Nicolás Lapentti ended the 1999 season in the top 10, after making the Australian Open semifinals.
Mario Ančić won the bronze medal at the 2004 Athens Olympics doubles event with fellow Croatian Ivan Ljubičić.
Gastón Gaudio is the only player to have won a Grand Slam title (the 2004 French Open) saving match points in the final.

Following is a list of notable players (winners of a main tour title, and/or part of the ATP Rankings top 100 (singles) or top 50 (doubles) for at least one week) who announced their retirement from professional tennis, became inactive (after not playing for more than 52 weeks), or were permanently banned from playing, during the 2011 season:

  • CroatiaMario Ančić (born 30 March 1984 in Split, SFR Yugoslavia, now Croatia) joined the circuit in 2001, and peaked at no. 7 in singles in 2006 and no. 47 in doubles in 2004. A junior world no. 1, Ančić won three singles and five doubles titles on the main tour, scoring his best Grand Slam results with a quarterfinal at the French Open (2006) and a semifinal at Wimbledon (2004). He was also part of the Croatian team that won the Davis Cup trophy in 2005. Diminished by a recurring bout of mononucleosis and then back problems since 2007, Ančić eventually decided to retire from the sport to pursue a career as a lawyer. He played his last tournament in Munich in May 2010.[19]
  • BrazilMarcos Daniel (born 4 July 1978 in Passo Fundo, Brazil) joined the circuit in 1997, reaching his career-high singles ranking of no. 56 in 2009. Daniel's success came mostly on the ATP Challenger Tour, where he collected 14 singles and eight doubles titles. He last competed on the main circuit in Estoril in April.[21]
  • AustraliaAshley Fisher (born 25 September 1975 in New South Wales, Australia) began his professional career in 1998, peaking at no. 19 in doubles in 2009. Fisher was a doubles semifinalist at the US Open (2006) – his best Grand Slam result, and collected four doubles titles on the main tour. He played his last event in Beijing in October.[22]
  • ArgentinaGastón Gaudio (born 9 December 1978 in Temperley, Argentina) turned professional in 1996 and reached a career-high singles ranking of world no. 5 in 2005, making the year-end top 10 twice (2004–05). Over the course of his 15-year career, Gaudio collected three doubles and eight singles titles on the main circuit, among which one French Open title (2004, def. Coria, saving two match points in the final[23]) – the only time the Argentinian went past the fourth round in a Grand Slam event. After four years spent out of the Top 100, Gaudio chose to retire from the sport. He played his last match at the Kitzbühel Challenger in August 2010.[24]
  • SpainÓscar Hernández (born 10 April 1978 in Barcelona, Spain)'arrived on the main tour in 1998, peaking at the no. 48 spot in singles in 2007. Hernández, winner of one doubles titles on the main circuit, decided to retire after complications following a spinal disc herniation operation. He played his last match at the Naples Challenger in September 2010.[25]
  • SwedenJoachim Johansson (born 1 July 1982 in Lund, Sweden) turned professional in 2000, and reached a career high of no. 9 in singles in 2005. Winner of three singles and one doubles titles, the six-foot six's best Grand Slam performance came with a semifinal appearance at the US Open (2004). His career stuck by shoulder and elbow injuries, Johansson opted for retirement in early 2008 before deciding for a comeback later in the season. He played his last match at a Swiss ITF Men's Circuit event in March.[26]
  • AustriaDaniel Köllerer (born 17 August 1983 in Wels, Austria) turned professional in 2002, peaking at no. 55 in singles in 2009. A competitor mainly on the ITF Men's Circuit (where he played his last match at an Italian event in May) and the ATP Challenger Tour, Köllerer saw his career mired by several controversies related to his on-court behaviour – he was eventually found guilty of match fixing by the Tennis Integrity Unit, and received a US$100,000 fine and a lifetime ban from the sport on 31 May. Köllerer appealed, and eventually saw the fine lifted but the ban confirmed on 23 March 2012.[27][28]
  • AustriaStefan Koubek (born 2 January 1977 in Klagenfurt, Austria) joined the main tour in 1994 and peaked at no. 20 in singles in 2000. The Austrian collected three singles and one doubles titles on the circuit, his best Grand Slam result coming with a quarterfinal showing at the Australian Open (2002). Koubek played his final tournament in Kitzbühel in August.[29]
  • EcuadorNicolás Lapentti (born 13 August 1976 in Guayaquil, Ecuador) turned professional in 1995, and reached his highest singles ranking, no. 6, in late 1999.

During his sixteen-year career, Levy played on both the main and the Challenger Tour, winning one ATP doubles title. He played his last match at the Granby Challenger in July.[31]
  • AustriaThomas Muster (born 2 October 1967 in Leibnitz, Austria) joined the tour in 1985 and unofficially retired in 1999, eventually returning to competition in 2010. In his first 14-year stint on the circuit, Muster was ranked world no. 1 and collected 44 singles titles (including one French Open (1995, def. Chang)). During his comeback, the Austrian compiled win-loss records of 0–3 on the main tour and 2–20 at the Challenger level, reaching his new best ranking, no. 847 (singles), in September 2011. Muster officially played his last main tour event in Vienna in October, but has not ruled out remaining active for the 2012 ATP Challenger Tour season.[33][34][35][36]
