Most ranking points in slams

I decided to check which players have taken the most points in the different slams, and overall. Only Open Era is counted, starting with FO 1968. All results are given with the current point scale of 2000-1200-720-360-180-90-45-10, despite this scale only being used the last few years. Older results are translated. A win is rewarded more now than in the past, so keep that in mind.

Top 30 overall:
Code:
1	Roger Federer		64235
2	Novak Djokovic		45845
3	Rafael Nadal		44495
4	Jimmy Connors		40435
5	Pete Sampras		40385
6	Ivan Lendl		39845
7	Andre Agassi		37675
8	Björn Borg		30925
9	John McEnroe		28760
10	Stefan Edberg		28525
11	Andy Murray		27915
12	Boris Becker		26525
13	Mats Wilander		25025

Re: Most ranking points in slams

Wow, this is awesome. A lot of work has gone into this. It's interesting that 5 men have each dominated the US Open more than any man has dominated the Australian Open. Nadal should overtake Connors for the greatest domination of a Slam before he retires. Federer a chance at Wimbledon.

I used to produce many similar threads and would usually start a General Messages thread instead. I'm not sure you'll get the exposure you deserve here. Or you could maybe put the link to this thread in your signature. Of course just suggestions, and understand if you don't.

Re: Most ranking points in slams

Thanks, man I will keep your suggestions in mind. I won't do anything more at first, though. I have a feeling I forgot someone. Those frequenting this subforum will undoubtedly be best qualified to remind me of who it might be, if indeed there are anyone.

I've already made one change myself, adding Johan Kriek to the AO list. I didn't forget him, but the ATP page didn't allow me to make a search for him until now.

Re: Most ranking points in slams

Thanks

From my calculations, Kodes has 5730 points in the French open. And it might be interesting to calculate his overall points.

Noah is just short for the French Open : 4395 points

suggestions of names you might have not checked : Muster in Roland-Garros, Kafelnikov, Orantes, Gerulaitis, Tanner, ...

GM is shit, it's much better here where people who have interest in those things can read them.

Re: Most ranking points in slams

Kodes! Of course! Thanks, duong, I knew I forgot someone. I'll put him in for FO and do a proper total a little later today.

I checked Kafelnikov, Muster, Noah and Gerulaitis. They didn't make the list.

I corrected a little error just now. Don't know if anyone was surprised to see Ivanisevic top-15 in the FO. It was a typo in my summation file....

I am planning an expansion from top-15 to a higher number, but will wait a bit before I publish more detail so as not to forget too many players.

Kodes, who was mentioned earlier, was not really close to top-20 overall, but his 11160 points is the highest from someone with 0 points from one slam - he never played the AO.

Re: Most ranking points in slams

Wow, that's a good argument to call Roger Lord of Wimbledon too.

Would it be possible to do ranking points on each surface?

Federer - Emperor of the Slams, King of Hard, King of Grass, Lord of the Australian Open, Lord of Wimbledon.

Good idea, I'll see if I can get that incorporated in the next update My data file does not lend itself immediately to such summation, but with some tweaking it should not be a problem.

Re: Most ranking points in slams

Updated with 2013 results.

Nadal closes in on Agassi in 5th for total points. Another season like this one and he's very close to Connors and 2nd. He also takes a clear lead for clay points and breaks into the top-10 for US Open points.

Djokovic passes Becker and enters the top-10 for total points.

Re: Most ranking points in slams

Updated after the 2014 AO.

For he grand total, Nadal gets past Agassi and into 5th. Djokovic gets past Edberg and into 9th.

For the AO, Nadal manages his way into the top-10 and is one of only three players to be top-10 in all four slams, the others being Federer and Agassi.

Re: Most ranking points in slams

Can you check these names Litotes please

In Australian Open: John Alexander, Richard Crealy, Phil Dent, Wayne Ferreira

Roland Garros: Harold Solomon, Albert Costa, Thomas Muster, Henri Leconte, Manuel Orantes

Wimbledon: Richard Krajicek, Tim Mayotte

US Open: Todd Martin, Manuel Orantes, Jan Kodes

I think that all of them make the cut

EDIT: I have these numbers
Code:
John Alexander		4015
Richard Crealy		3405
Phil Dent		3270
Wayne Ferreira		3195
		
Harold Solomon		4045
Albert Costa		3965
Thomas Muster		3920
Henri Leconte		3565
Manuel Orantes		3400
		
Richard Krajicek	3775
Tim Mayotte		3160
		
Todd Martin		3525
Manuel Orantes		3360
Jan Kodes		3345
At least for Australia when the draws were less than 128 I gave him 45 points if the player was in thje Round of 64 but it was First Round, I don't know how are you doing with this situation

Always bel18ved.
