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.
Can we rank Masters Cup that djokovic won equal with amazing Masters Cups from the 80's.. with true Indoor players? And that's just one example
