Most ranking points ever?

I see Novak currently has over 14,000 ranking points. I believe Roger and Rafa were able to reach similar totals at some point in their careers. Does anyone know which tennis player was able to compile the most total ranking points ever? I mean, was there a week in the past when Roger was able to amass over 15,000 rp?

The ranking system has been changed so much that this is an insignificant statistic. Only way to make it comparable would be to somehow scale the ranking points to one standard.

this; they have changed the values of different tournaments and the entire system for that matter, way too many times

no better way to measure tournaments value than by points that the tour attributes them. true though, a unified standard is needed.

Fed had the most in...2006 I believe?

ETA: stole this from TTW

Federer 2006:

3 slams and 1 final = 6720pts
4 MS titles and 2 MS finals = 5200pts
TMC title = 1500pts
Best of other 5 = 2500pts

Federer 2006 = 15920pts
