    Hey everyone, I was just wondering how many points of the year each surface takes up, so I ran the numbers according to the 2010 schedule. I separated them into Indoor/Outdoor hard, clay, and grass. Enjoy:

    Total Number of Tournaments: 65

    Total Points: 34,000

    Outdoor Hard:
    Number of Tournaments: 24
    Percentage: 37%
    Number of Points: 15,250
    Percentage: 45%

    Indoor Hard:
    Number of Tournaments: 12
    Percentage: 19%
    Number of Points: 5,500
    Percentage: 16%

    Clay:
    Number of Tournaments: 21
    Percentage: 32%
    Number of Points: 10,000
    Percentage: 29%

    Grass:
    Number of Tournaments: 6
    Percentage: 9%
    Number of Points: 3,250
    Percentage: 10%

    Stinks that there are so few grass tournaments. :cry:

    Theoretically, if someone had the physical/mental ability to play week in, week out on every surface and win every tournament they entered, they could have a max of 27,000 points. That's with the calendar year GS and YEC, all 9 MS, almost all of the 500's, and most of the 250's. If someone could actually do that, it would be awesome! 115-0 year! Or something like that . . . Someone mights be able to do that on the women's tour, given its extremely weak state right now.

    Actually, 20,000(assuming no Davis Cup) is the max. You can only count 8 Masters, 4 500s, and 2 250s at best. Winning more tournaments doesn't give you any more points.

    Oh, sorry, I didn't know that. That's actually not that far off from what federer had from 06-07!

    It would be nice M1000 in grass, previous to Wimbly.

    Indoor Carpet:
    Number of Tournaments: 0
    Percentage: 0%
    Number of Points: 0
    Percentage: 0%

    They could at least have ONE tournament on carpet, but I think ATP chooses not to because it's too quick and they think that all surfaces should play like clay.

    But yeah, a Grass M1000 would be great.

    Yeah, having paris or shangai or paris on carpet like they used to, then making queens or halle a 1000 would make my year, some of the fast-court specialist could get up in the rankings.
