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.

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.
