    Imagine Monaco relegated to 500 status and Halle elevated to 1000? Suddenly Nadal would have only 13 and Federer would have 26.

    yeah but what's the point of imagining that? If anything there's too much hc tennis.

    3 clay, 3 grass, 2 hardcourt, 1 indoor hard/carpet and indoor hard/carpet YEC would seem a fair spread or maybe just 2, clay, 2 grass, 2 outdoor hard, 2 indoor hard/carpet

    ps imagine the French Open relegated to a challeger event and Basel made into a slam! :lol:

    The masters series is relatively new in terms of historic records and pretty flawed. IMO, its never going to be a serious factor in debating GOAT and the system may not even be around in 20 years. You cant even really compare records today from the players of the 80s during the golden age other than GS.

    Because Fed won more 5 setters it would seem it's a tougher road and worth more.
    But in 3 sets there's more chance of a player getting hot for a couple sets and causing an upset. So that's a definite danger too.

    The slams during the time the masters were 5 sets would seem to be more valuable.
    With all those 5 set masters it would be hard to have enough long term endurance to play strongly through the slams.
