What is the maximum amount of race/entry points a player can accrue?
According to the ATP website, the year end race points are the points received from the 4 Grand Slams, the 9 Masters Series, the TMC and 5 best performances at optional tournaments.
Let's take a hypothetical situation where a player wins all 4 Grand Slams, all 9 TMS, the TMC (without losing any round robin matches) and 5 Int'l Series Gold (the optional events with the most ranking points)- what would be that player's point tally at the end of the year?
If winners receive 200 race points for a GS, 100 for a TMS, 150 for TMC (all RR matches won) and 60 for Int'l Series Gold then I calculate that player will have:
4x200 + 9x100 + 150 + 5x60 = 2,150.
Also, at year's end the race points multiplied by 5 give the year end entry points so they will be 5x2,150 = 10,750.
In short- 2,150 race points or 10,750 entry points.
Is this correct or am I missing something (bonus points for beating higher ranked players etc.)?
