Del Potro has a nearly 200 points lead ahead of Djokovic even though Novak received 3 times as often 10 points compared to Del Potro.

Nadal has a few more points than Haas but Rafa received nearly 9 more often 10 points compared to Tommy.

You can see that it's not always an advantage to receive the maximum points many times when you get fewer points then on an average.
Thanks Eden!

It's just as I expected. Roger gets over 60% of his pts from being ranked #1. Rafa/Novak get about 45-50%, Andy 30% and DelPo gets only 12% of his pts from being ranked #1. He just gets on people's top10 so much more often than these guys even if he's not their absolute favorite. DelPo = not hated (too much), loved by few and liked by many.

Similar for Haas/Rafa, Rafa may have more dedicated fans, but Tommy's generally liked by more people.

Now of course, this assumes everyone answered honestly, without agenda

Good to see fed win again. Dull is a bit high but Duarte explained that "issue"

True. This is a tennis forum. More than the top players who get more exposure, magazine spreads etc. get recognized .

Last year he had a nearly 1000 points lead ahead of Del Potro but this year it's around 600 points.

Roger had 2117 points last year, Del Potro 1194, Djokovic 1192

This year Roger has 2063 points, Del Potro 1453 points, Djokovic 1259

That means that Roger lost some points but Djokovic and especially Del Potro gained points.

Full credit for your hard work Eden.

I'm happy Roger still leads by a huge margin having suffered from such a horrible year.

Now I'm expecting a conclusion of the Most Disliked Player thread.

Some faith in MTF restored although given Dull's fluke year MTF was flooded with new Dull tards hence his rise from 8th to 5th.

Still, it's good to see MTF as a whole still has some common sense.

Great work Eden. Thank you.

Strange to see Rafa so high at #5 ... Rafa tards are being bad this year .

Sorry, I had to troll a little bit
