Default Top 3 events weighted

A way of measuring Djokovic against Becker, Wilander and Edberg is:

Slams + Season End Finals + Masters 1000 equivalents, with a weighting factor depending on the importance of the event ie 2 x for slams, 1.5 for Season end finals, 1 x for Masters 1000 equivalents

Djokovic = (5 x 2) + (1 x 1.5) + (12 x 1) = 23.5

Becker = (6 x 2) + (3 x 1.5) + (13 x 1) = 29.5

Wilander = (7 x 2) + (0 x 1.5) + (8 x 1) = 22

Edberg = (6 x 2) + (1 x 1.5) + (8 x 1) = 21.5


So by this it appears that Djokovic is slightly above Wilander and Edberg but behind Becker.
