That's very well done, Jonathan and pretty valuable abstraction for the purposes of getting at what the best events were and who won them.

I caution others though not to assume that this approach is fool-proof towards deciding who the most accomplished player of all time is. 1965 is a good example - while Jonathan's numbers favour Rosewall, they do not account for the fact that Laver otherwise dominated h2h against his rival and won, if memory serves, almost twice the overall titles.

Again, what matters is how we use this information.
