Will Nadal be #7 if he wins his 12th Slam?

Unjustly in parts of 89 and 90. I have rectified this, giving some weeks from Lendl to Becker and Edberg, as I also did taking some from Connors and giving to Borg, Ashe, and Vilas.

I think he should surpass Sampras overall. Or at least when he gets 13.

How did you 'rectify' it though? By using the modern day ranking system?

And go week by week? Even I hardly have such time. With Connors, he at least split with Ashe in '75, so I gave Ashe 27 weeks, one week over half. I gave 14 to Vilas, one week more than 1/4 of the season in '77.

For Lendl, his numbers from 89 and 90 are a bit screwy. Becker was the true year end in 89, and I awarded him an extra 20 weeks, and for Edberg, I gave him 13 from Lendl, another 1/4 of the season. Have you an alternate method?

For Gonzales, he won 27 slams in his career. Well this is a bit ridiculous. The number in parenthesis is Johnny Groove Adjusted Slams. I averaged the 2, which is where I got 20+ for Pancho.

He will be added to the full list, which will stretch beyond 150. Murray will be just outside the top 100.

Apart from the week count which is obviously an approximation, how did you count Gonzalez 27 slams?

On wiki he has 14 (counting both slams and pro-slams). http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tennis_...singles_titles

If anything it's Rosewall who should be up at 23 (well I wouldn't count his 4 slams pre-open era since they were amateurs events, I would count the pro-slams instead, for a total of 19).
