    Is it to easy to determine the best player of 2012 as follows?:

    0.75 points for each win at the Olympics, 1 point for each win in a Masters Series tournament, 1.5 points for each win at the ATP Tour World Finals, and 2 points for each win at Grand Slam tournament.

    Federer
    42 points at Grand Slams
    34.50 points at Masters Series
    3.75 points at Olympics
    80.25 total points

    Djokovic
    48 points at Grand Slams
    51 points at Masters Series
    3 points at Olympics
    102 total points

    Murray
    44 points at Grand Slams
    28 points at Masters Series
    4.5 points at Olympics
    76.50 total points

    Note: I counted a Walkover as a win and the player earned points for it.
    Federer skipped two Masters Series, Canada and Paris. Murray skipped Madrid. Djokokvic played them all and should be rewarded for doing so.

    Because there's no satisfying a Federer fan.

    The easiest way to determine it is to argue about it over the internet!

    Obviously!

    What if Jeremy Chardy is the player of the year?

    the easiest way to determine the best player of 2012 is to look at the atp year to date rankings.:confused:

    OP's system is good as far as it goes. But it needs to factor in HTH, tanking, MTOs, and appearance of GF

    OP's method seems great.
    Although i like Federer best in 2012 , i must agree Nole is the best achiever over the longer haul of the entire year and thats what does count.
    You would like Nate Silver.

    A lot of trouble to come up with what is basically a poor mans version of the ATP points system!

    The one thing folks could additionally consider is that the olympics has more prestige than a 750 so, you could consider giving a bit extra to fed and murray than the ATP points they received.

    Doesn't take into account the Judy Murray Coefficient, so flawed from the start
