Nice to get an update Interesting to see Djokovic has passed Sampras.

I was surprised as well to see Djokovic has already surpassed Spampras at this point.
The ranking rewards all round success, success in TMS/1000 events and consistent deep runs in tournaments.

While it is easy to look at the slams won and see 14 > 7, there are some factors working in Djokovic favor:

Slam runner-up: 7-4 Djokovic
Slam semifinal reached: 24-23 Djokovic
TMS/1000 won: 20-11 Djokovic
TMS/1000 runner-up: 10-8 Djokovic
Record in clay slams and TMS events :106-28 vs 47-31 Djokovic.
Besides, Sampras' succes cam mostly

If only slams counted, Sampras would still be ahead by a considerable margin.
If slam wins were rewarded with more points, Sampras would also still be ahead.

In the end, this is points systems I came up with a few years ago and the ranking is what it is.
I believe that in a few years time, Djokovic will reach double digits in slams and Djokovic vs Sampras will become a lively topic for discussion.
