It was at the end of 2009 I believe, but it was only for a few weeks.
I can't see Djokovic losing the number one spot this year. He's over 3000 points ahead of anyone else. He's got some points to defend over the clay season, but he didn't get to the Wimbledon final and didn't win the US Open. He does have a few points to defend through Asia and the world tour finals...but I don't think he should lose the number one ranking.
Although Murray doesn't really have a lot of anything to defend through the clay season. He has a Wimbledon final and a US Open title to defend, but otherwise he didn't gain all that much more points last year. So it's possible he could get a fair bit closer, he won't overtake him though.
Marking for: John Morrison, Randy Orton, CM Punk, Sheamus, Dolph Ziggler, Cody Rhodes and Jack Swagger.
