That's a really interesting issue:
Roger received 10 points 126 times, Del Potro 18 times, Djokovic 55 times, Tsonga 11 times, Nadal 53 times, Haas 6 times, Dimitrov 15 times, Wawrinka 5 times, Murray 25 times, Gasquet 11 times.
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.
