    But not all titles have equal weight. There are slams, WTF, MS, atp500 and atp250.

    Laver won 33 in 1969/1970. Connors i think 24 1974/1975. Borg at least 25 1978/79.

    • borg: 9 in 1978 (or 1980) + 13 in 1979 = 22
    • muster: 12 in 1995 + 7 in 1996 = 19
    • smith: 9 in 1972 + 8 in 1973 = 17

    quality vs. quantity. many of top players in 70s, 80' etc. were playing too many MM tournaments (I mean look at Connors for example)

    According to timnz, this is the weight for each tournament:


    Federer = (17 x 2) + (6 x 1.4) + (7 x 1.2) + (21 x 1) = 71.8

    Lendl = (8 x 2) + ((5 + 1) x 1.4)) + (11 x 1.2) + (22 x 1) = 59.6

    Sampras = (14 x 2) + (5 x 1.4) + (4 x 1.2) + (11 x 1) = 50.8

    Nadal = (11 x 2) + (0 x 1.4) + (5 x 1.2) + (21 x 1) = 49

    McEnroe (7 x 2) + ((3 + 4) x 1.4)) + (4 x 1.2) + (19 x 1) = 47.6

    Borg = (11 x 2) + ((2 + 1) x 1.4)) + (5 x 1.2) + (15 x 1) = 47.2

    Connors = (8 x 2) + ((1 + 2) x 1.4)) + (7 x 1.2) + (17 x 1) = 45.6

    Agassi = (8 x 2) + (1 x 1.4) + (7 x 1.2) + (17 x 1) = 42.8

    Becker = (6 x 2) + ((3 + 1) x 1.4)) + (4 x 1.2) + (13 x 1) = 35.4

    Djokovic = (5 x 2) + (2 x 1.4) + (4 x 1.2) + (13 x 1) = 30.6

    Edberg = (6 x 2) + (1 x 1.4) + (5 x 1.2) + (8 x 1) = 27.4

    Wilander = (7 x 2) + (0 x 1.4) + (4 x 1.2) + (8 x 1) = 26.8
