I think the race is easier to understand, actually. The race points stack up this way:
Slams = 5120 for W, 2xF and SF
Masters = 4340 for 2xW, 3xF, S and Q
500 and others = 950 for Olympics, 2xS
Slams = 3800 for W, 2xS and Q
Masters = 3405 for 3xW, S, R32
500 and others = 1715 for Olympics, 2xW, F(500), F, S(250) and DC
(I added 5 points somewhere for Fed and dropped 10 for Djokovic apparently but can’t tell where at the moment)
So Dkokovic got the lead through slams (more finals and semi) and masters (won Canada instead of skipping it, played Monte Carlo plus no early losses).
Feds great run near the end of 2011 is helping his ranking stay at number 1 now, but he is about to defend that.
