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

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?
