Win RG? Beat Nadal at RG? Anything else? Nothing else?

If Dominic wins Roland Garros he'll automatically be The Player Of 2020 no matter what other players do next because 2 slams > 1 slam.
If he doesn't win Roland Garros and Djokovic doesn't win it either then the player with most points solely in 2020 will become The Player Of 2020.

What if Thiem makes the RG Final, but loses to someone else not Djokovic? For example, Thiem loses to Tsitsipas in the final, but Djokovic has more points in 2020.

Tsitsipas - Thiem final wouldn't be bad, would it? :cool:
Anyway if that happens Dominic would have the most "slam" points of 2020 and would be "the best slam player of 2020" but not necessarily "The Player Of 2020". Djokovic has 2 masters titles already and could gather more points at the end of 2020.

Interesting. So, yes, ITF Player of the Year is on Thiem's racquet. ;)

He wins it if he at least makes the RG Final. (y) 👊 😎

It does not go that way. If Thiem wins RG, he'll have 2 slams. But let's say Djokovic wins Paris and London. Then Thiem would have 2 Slams and 0 other titles, while Djokovic would have 1 slam, WTF, 3 M1000, Dubai and ATP Cup.
Remember 2016 when Djokovic won 2 slams and 4 Masters while Murray won one slam, 3 Masters and WTF.. Murray was the player of the year because he was YE No1. Ye No1 is always the player of the year.

I am fully aware of all of what you wrote, bro. But for me personally slams are the Everest of tennis so whoever wins the most slams deserves to be The Player of The Year no matter what. Yeah, I know it's subjective but that's what I think. And I'm quite sure many (if not the vast majority) Djokovic fans think the same way regarding 2016.

The race for the ITF player of the year is between Zverev (he has to win RG of course) and Thiem. Djokovic is out of the race after his public assault at the US Open. It would be horrible example for the youth players if he would get it.

Most of the time, but Not Always. Here are two examples:

In 1982, McEnroe had the YE most ATP ranking points and yet Connors was awarded ATP Player of the Year, and ITF World Champion.
In 1989, Lendl had the YE most ATP ranking points, and B. Becker was the awarded ATP Player of the Year, and ITF World Champion.

There are probably others in the 1970's, but I'll defer to the Rankings Master, @Slasher1985;

Ranking points don't quite entirely correlate to greatness even now though; winning two masters is certainly not considered as great as winning a slam, even though the rankings weigh them the same.

I did think Murray had a slightly greater year in 2016 because of the Olympics even though they didn't count in the rankings.
