The most dominant 12 month period in tennis history

I was reading something in the match result thread about how good Rafa's last 12 months have been. So, I did a little calculations, and came up with this:

Nadal from Hamburg 2008-Rome 2009 (Converted to 2009 Points)

Hamburg- 1000
Roland Garros- 2000
Queens- 250
Wimbledon- 2000
Toronto- 1000
Cincinnati- 360
Gold Medal- 800
US Open- 720
Madrid- 360
Paris- 180
Doha- 45
Australian Open- 2000
Rotterdam- 300
Indian Wells- 1000
Miami- 180
Monte Carlo- 1000
Barcelona- 500
Rome- 1000

Total- 14,695

Federer’s complete 2006 (Converted to 2009 Points)

Doha- 250
Aussie Open- 2000
Dubai- 300
Indian Wells- 1000
Miami- 1000
Monte Carlo- 600
Rome- 600
Roland Garros- 1200
Halle- 250
Wimbledon- 2000
Toronto- 1000
Cincinnati- 45
US Open- 2000
Tokyo- 500
Madrid- 1000
Basel- 500
TMC- 1500

Total- 15,745

Just for shits and giggles, I did Sampras too.

Sampras from Canada 1993 to Wimbledon 1994 (Converted to 2009 points)

Canada- 90
LA- 90
Cincy- 360
Indy- 45
USO- 2000
Lyon- 250
Stockholm- 45
Paris- 180
Antwerp- 250
TMC- 1000
Sydney- 250
AO- 2000
IW- 1000
Miami- 1000
Osaka- 250
Tokyo- 500
Rome- 1000
RG- 360
Queens- 150
Wimbledon- 2000

Total- 12,820

Federer- 15,745
Nadal- 14,695
Sampras- 12,820

Now, that's 2009 points. How about 2008 points?

Nadal from Hamburg 2008-Rome 2009 (Converted to 2008 Points)

Hamburg- 500
Roland Garros- 1000
Queens- 225
Wimbledon- 1000
Toronto- 500
Cincinnati- 225
Gold Medal- 400
US Open- 450
Madrid- 225
Paris- 125
Doha- 60
Australian Open- 1000
Rotterdam- 210
Indian Wells- 500
Miami- 125
Monte Carlo- 500
Barcelona- 300
Rome- 500

Total- 7,845

Federer’s complete 2006 (Converted to 2008 Points)

Doha- 250
Aussie Open- 1000
Dubai- 210
Indian Wells- 500
Miami- 500
Monte Carlo- 350
Rome- 350
Roland Garros- 700
Halle- 225
Wimbledon- 1000
Toronto- 500
Cincinnati- 35
US Open- 1000
Tokyo- 250
Madrid- 500
Basel- 250
TMC- 750

Total- 8,370

Sampras from Canada 1993 to Wimbledon 1994 (Converted to 2008 points)

Canada- 75
LA- 75
Cincy- 225
Indy- 40
USO- 1000
Lyon- 200
Stockholm- 35
Paris- 125
Antwerp- 250
TMC- 500
Sydney- 175
AO- 1000
IW- 500
Miami- 500
Osaka- 175
Tokyo- 250
Rome- 500
RG- 250
Queens- 155
Wimbledon- 1000

Total- 7,030
----------------------------------------------
So, comparing 2008 to 2009 conversions

Federer- 8,370 compared to 15,745 (x 1.88)
Nadal- 7,845 compared to 14,695 (x 1.87)
Sampras- 7,030 compared to 12,820 (x 1.82)

Of course this is an imperfect science, Sampras and Federer probably would have played more "500's" if they existed, I didn't feel like doing the Davis Cup points cause the 2009 system is :retard:, and comparing eras is always difficult, but it is what it is.

Federer's 2006 was the most dominant year in the history of the sport, it appears.

Is there any other 12 month period anyone can think of to compare it to?

Re: The most dominant 12 month period in tennis history

Not bad from Nadal considering he forfeited in Paris and withdrew from the Masters Cup. Federer still has that points record secured for a while though seeing as Nadal can't gain a thing until Cincinatti

14.

Re: The most dominant 12 month period in tennis history

Interesting stats, Jon.
It will be even more interesting to see whether Rafa will be able to take over the top spot from Roger this year. By the way things are going right now - I guess it's just a matter of time.

Re: The most dominant 12 month period in tennis history

I think Federer fared so well only because it was mug era. Not now when Nadal has such a big competition.

Re: The most dominant 12 month period in tennis history

McEnroe 82-3

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Re: The most dominant 12 month period in tennis history

Johnny Mac (2009 points)

Wembley 83 (November 7, 1983) to Stockholm 84 (October 29, 1984)

Wembley- 250
AO- 720
TMC- 1500
Philly- 250
Richmond- 250
Madrid- 250
Brussels- 250
Dallas- 250
Forest Hills- 250
WTC- 250
RG- 1200
Queens- 250
Wimbledon- 2000
Canada- 1000
Cincy- 10
USO- 2000
San Fran- 250
Stockholm- 1000

Total- 11,930

Its tough to do J-Mac, since he didn't play many "Masters" events, instead opting for "250's", or at least the equivalent of both.

Yeah, that's also why I spent the time to do Federer, Sampras, and McEnroe's points. Twice.

Not to mention Agassi, who once had an 11,000 pt 12 month period, and a 12,000+ point period. Wilander in '88 was just under 10,000.

So you didn't even notice that Federer comes out as the winner?
