Weighted ranking

ATP 1968-2011

I’ve completed data collection for ATP main draws since 1968.
Years 1969-1971 are lacking some data. But that’s all I’ve got from ATP and ITF sites combined. (* 1968 and some 1969 information was added from TennisArchives site *).

The main problem was to rank non-Grand Slam tournaments. I was using the combination of lineage, prize money and/or draw. For early tournaments prize money is mostly unlisted, therefore I was using the draw instead.

I didn’t have the guts to downgrade early Australian opens, even though prize money and draws were suggesting that this very well could be done. But the principle of lineage prevailed.

Also for the years with excessive number of tournaments (1973-1983) I’ve slightly downgraded rank of non-Slam tournaments in order to even up the amount of points in play available for each player.

Currently only two of my ten components depend on ranking in non-Grand Slam tournaments. Components and their weights are as follows:

1) Non-Slam ranking – 2.0
2) Rated ranking (Slam ranking + non-Slam ranking divided per number of all tournament played) – 2.5
3) Win-loss percentage in non-Slams – 1.5
4) Total matches won in non-Slams – 0.7
5) Total tournaments won – 2.0
6) Ranking in slams – 4.0
7) Longest winning streak – 0.8
8) Share of tournaments won out of all entered – 2.0
9) Total matches won in Slams – 1.4
10)Win-loss percentage in Slams – 2.5

After calculating each component I normalize them, dividing by <maximum - minimum> for considered period. This way normalized value always spreads from 0 to 1.
After normalizing I’m calculating weighted value, multiplying normalized value by weight.

Davis Cup results are reflected in components #3,4 and slightly in #5 – I award the tournament win to the player who was on the winning team in Davis Cup finals and won at least one singles match.

The lists of top 15 by each component and combined:

Nadal,_Rafael_______22929
Chang,_Michael______22724
Laver,_Rod__________22438


Federer moved from #7 to #4, bypassing Becker, Sampras and Agassi. Nadal moved from #14 to #13, bypassing Chang. Ashe (basing on additional 1968-69 info) moved from #14 to #13, also bypassing Chang.

Edberg,_Stefan_____152.2034
Murray,_Andy_______134.9609
Rosewall,_Ken______133.7363
Wilander,_Mats_____133.2143


Nadal and Federer kept their #1 and #2 positions and even increased their numbers. Djokovic moved from #11 to #6 (no wonder after having such a year). Becker got ahead of Laver (previously there was a glitch in calculations – Davis Cup ties were added to the number of tournaments, therefore denominator in the rated ranking was larger for Davis cup stalwarts and they were unfairly penalized.). Murray got to #13, Newcombe moved out of top 15 – to #16. A big number of small tournaments (added to the database), where he entered in 1968 reduced his rated ranking.

Federer moved one place up – switched places with Laver. Djokovic moved from #15 to #8. Ashe got ahead of Carlsson (due to more 68-69 data).

Dibbs,_Eddie________536


Nastase moved ahead of JMac to #4; Orantes and Ashe both moved one place up, bypassing Gottfried. Stan Smith bypassed Gottfried and Sampras. All of the above – due to additional 68-69 data. But Federer – bypassing Chang, Dibbs, Becker and Sampras and moving to #12 – is all due to his gain in 2011.

Nastase moved ahead of Vilas and joined Agassi at #7-8 with 62 titles. Laver moved from #11 to #10 (don’t forget this is Open Era only!). Ashe and Stan Smith joined the group of the holders of 44 titles – with Edberg and Muster. Nadal added 4 titles, but kept his place at #12. He is gaining on Becker though.

Laver got to #1, switching places with Borg. McEnroe got ahead of Lendl (the correction of the glitch in Davis Cup count). Federer moved one place up, switching with Connors (also mostly due to DC correction rather than his 2011 results.) Djokovic moved from #15 to #10.

    Very very cool.

    Thanks for all your work!

    In calculating winning streaks - if player receives walkover it does not count towards the streak (and wins tally), but the streak is not interrupted. If player gives walkover, then his streak is interrupted, but this match is not counted towards his losses tally.

    2012 changes. Also some 1969 data was added.

    1) Accumulated ranking in non-Slams.
    Federer moved from #4 to#3 switching with McEnroe; Nadal bypassed Ashe and Borg and moved from #13 to #11. Ashe himself bypassed Borg based on additional 1969 data, imported from TennisArchives. Likewise Laver bypassed Chang and moved from #15 to #14.

    Laver,_Rod__________23206
    Chang,_Michael______22724


    2) Rated Ranking.
    Nadal and Federer kept their #1 and #2 positions and even slightly increased their numbers (which is mind-boggling for 31 years old Federer). Djokovic moved from #6 to #3. Just goes to show how underrated his 2012 was – he continued to improve his career averages and increased his numbers significantly. Novak bypassed such legends as Lendl, Borg and Sampras. Note that these numbers can not only increase, but also decrease with time, so his position here will be finalized only when his career is over. Andy Murray increased his numbers, but still it was not enough to overtake Stefan Edberg. Murray stays at #13

    Wilander,_Mats_____133,2143


    3) Win-loss percentage at non-Slam events.
    No changes comparing to last year. Nadal, Federer and Djokovic all slightly increased their numbers, but not enough to move on the list.

    McEnroe,_John________81.74
    Connors,_Jimmy_______81.55
    Lendl,_Ivan__________81.52

    4) Matches won in non-Slam events.
    Out of active players, only Federer is on this list. And he moved from #12 to #7, bypassing Gottfried, Stan Smith and Ashe, despite Ashe and Smith getting some additional matches from new 1969 data.

    5) Tournaments won (tournaments played).
    I’m rewarding extra counts here for Davis Cup wins if player participated in the final on the winning team and won live singles rubber. Johnny Mac done this on 4 different occasions; this is why he still has some margin over Federer. Due to 1969 additional data Laver passed Agassi and Vilas, while Ashe and Smith broke the tie with Muster and Edberg. Nadal passed Becker and now he is at #11.

    Connors,_Jimmy______108________393
    Lendl,_Ivan__________96________321

    Edberg,_Stefan_______44________290
    Muster,_Thomas_______44________309


    6) Accumulated ranking in Slams.
    Federer continued to increase a gap between him and second place. Nadal moved from #8 to #6. passing by Edberg and Borg. Novak Djokovic entered top 15 and put himself at # 12.

    Federer,_Roger____26492

    8) Share of tournaments won out of all entered.
    This list is more influenced by old 1969 data than by 2012. Federer, Nadal and Djokovic slightly increased their numbers, but not enough to move on the list. Again it is quite remarkable that at this age Federer had a season that is better than his career average. Djokovic had biggest increase out of contemporary trio and crept closer to Sampras. Manolo Santana entered the list and now resides at # 12 with 8 tournament wins out of 42 participaions. He bumped Ashe to #16.

    Vilas,_Guillermo____18.05
    Newcombe,_John______17.62
    Nastase,_Ilie_______17.40


    9) Matches won in Slams.
    Federer moved to #1, which was expected given how close he was last year. Nadal moved from #10 to #9, eclipsing Wilander. Lleyton Hewitt reminded of himself by eclipsing Vilas and moving from #13 to #12. Actually # 10 is within his reach (he is just 5 wins shy), but Djokovic entered the list at #14, bumping Chang out of top 15. It is likely that Novak may have to say something about this in 2013. Next active player is Andy Murray, but he is at # 23 with 100 wins and has to continue working to enter this conversation.

    Vilas,_Guillermo____139
    Djokovic,_Novak_____134
    Roddick,_Andy_______131


    10) Win-loss percentage at Slams.
    Djokovic held up nicely in such a stellar company. He even got better and moved from #7 to #6, passing by Connors. But to stay high in this nomination is a tall order. Both Federer and Nadal are slipping a bit in their numbers, even though they kept their respective places.

    Overall weighted ranking
    It finally happened. Roger Federer tops the list. I like Ivan Lendl as a next guy, but Roger just had to get there for this method of calculation to be considered credible. It always has been a hassle to explain why Ivan is on top (his ironclad consistency is so often overlooked). In other news: Rafa Nadal moved from #8 to #7 eclipsing Agassi, Novak Djokovic moved from #13 to #10, leaving Vilas, Laver and Edberg behind.

    2013 changes. Also some 1968-1970 data was added.

    1) Accumulated ranking in non-Slams.

    Lendl, Ivan_______46289
    Connors, Jimmy____42755
    Federer, Roger____37670
    McEnroe, John_____36073
    Agassi, Andre_____31814
    Sampras, Pete_____31486
    Becker, Boris_____31034
    Nadal, Rafael_____29186
    Nastase, Ilie_____28915
    Edberg, Stefan____28898
    Vilas, Guillermo__27387
    Ashe, Arthur______24268
    Laver, Rod________23833
    Borg, Bjorn_______23457
    Chang, Michael____22724


    Nadal moved from #11 to #8, bypassing Edberg, Nastase and Vilas. Note that Djokovic is now at #16 just slightly behind Chang and next year he will most likely enter top 15.

    2) Rated Ranking.
    Nadal, Rafael___255,0319
    Federer, Roger__231,0142
    Djokovic, Novak_228,8896
    Lendl, Ivan_____208,0528
    Borg, Bjorn_____202,7216
    Sampras, Pete___195,5410
    McEnroe, John___191,5468
    Becker, Boris___170,1094
    Laver, Rod______168,9043
    Connors, Jimmy__161,6421
    Agassi, Andre___159,4830
    Murray, Andy____153,9811
    Edberg, Stefan__152,2034
    Rosewall, Ken___134,9704
    Wilander, Mats__133,2143


    Nadal increased his overall lead due to outstanding year. Murray also had a good year and eclipsed Edberg. Djokovic also improved significantly, but not enough to overtake Federer (who’s number is slightly decreased)

    3) Win-loss percentage at non-Slam events.
    Nadal, Rafael_____82.12
    McEnroe, John_____81.74
    Connors, Jimmy____81.64
    Lendl, Ivan_______81.50
    Borg, Bjorn_______81.31
    Laver, Rod________79.25
    Federer, Roger____79.19
    Djokovic, Novak___79.04
    Vilas, Guillermo__76.50
    Ashe, Arthur______76.37
    Sampras, Pete_____76.22
    Becker, Boris_____75.98
    Carlsson, Kent____75.51
    Roddick, Andy_____74.65
    Agassi, Andre_____74.51


    Nadal leaped to #1 due to outstanding year.
    Federer moved down from #6 to #7, even though his number declined slightly. Laver bested Federer and Ashe also got ahead of Sampras and Becker due to continuous filling of the database with 1968-1970 results.

    ATP site posted some old data - Connors now has two more tournament wins...
    Federer slowed down and didn’t reach McEnroe. He is still at #4.
    Nadal bypassed Agassi and Vilas and now sits at #9.
    But 3 more tournament wins would move him past Nastase, Sampras, Borg and Lacer and he will be behind Federer at #5.
    Note that Djokovic is only two tournament wins from entering this list.

    8) Share of tournaments won out of all entered.

    Laver, Rod________34.57
    Nadal, Rafael_____33.51
    Borg, Bjorn_______33.51
    McEnroe, John_____30.34
    Lendl, Ivan_______29.81

    Agassi, Andre_____19.20
    Vilas, Guillermo__18.29
    Newcombe, John____17.92
    Murray, Andy______17.61


    Nadal’s number is now exactly like Borg’s and they are sharing 2nd place. But due to old data Laver slightly increased his lead over 2nd place. Federer drowned below Connors to #7. Djokovic passed by Sampras and now is at #8. Due to old data Santana bypassed Becker and Agassi. Murray entered the list at #15, bumping Nastase to #16.

    9) Matches won in Slams.

    Federer, Roger____260
    Connors, Jimmy____233
    Agassi, Andre_____224
    Lendl, Ivan_______222
    Sampras, Pete_____203
    Edberg, Stefan____178
    Nadal, Rafael_____171
    McEnroe, John_____167
    Becker, Boris_____163
    Djokovic, Novak___158
    Wilander, Mats____144
    Hewitt, Lleyton___144
    Borg, Bjorn_______141
    Vilas, Guillermo__139
    Roddick, Andy_____131


    Federer continues to put a distance between himself and 2nd place (Connors). Nadal moved from #9 to #7, passing by Becker and McEnroe. Djokovic passed by Vilas, Hewitt, Borg and Wilander and now is at #10. Hewitt passed by Borg, but still is at #11, because of Djokovic.


    10) Win-loss percentage at Slams.

    Borg, Bjorn______89.24
    Nadal, Rafael____88.14
    Laver, Rod_______87.18
    Federer, Roger___86.38
    Sampras, Pete____84.23
    Djokovic, Novak__84.04
    Connors, Jimmy___82.62
    Lendl, Ivan______81.92
    Rosewall, Ken____81.74
    McEnroe, John____81.46
    Newcombe, John___81.15
    Agassi, Andre____80.87
    Becker, Boris____80.30
    Murray, Andy_____80.14
    Wilander, Mats___79.56


    Nadal improved his number and got closer to Borg. Federer decreased, but still at #4 ahead of Sampras. Djokovic is still at #6 but closer to Sampras. Murray entered the list at #14 bumping out Edberg. But don’t forget that in such relative categories active players can also move down on the list (which is happening with Federer).

    Overall weighted ranking

    Federer, Roger____16,40460
    Lendl, Ivan_______15,90084
    Connors, Jimmy____15,51564
    Nadal, Rafael_____14,38689
    Sampras, Pete_____13,88858
    McEnroe, John_____13,73818
    Borg, Bjorn_______13,46522
    Agassi, Andre_____13,10303
    Djokovic, Novak___12,39237
    Becker, Boris_____11,68570
    Edberg, Stefan____11,36856
    Laver, Rod________11,04719
    Vilas, Guillermo__10,98214
    Wilander, Mats_____9,91328
    Ashe, Arthur_______9,73317



    Nadal made his move from #7 to #4, eclipsing Borg, McEnroe and Sampras. But his high position is basing mostly on relative categories, which could possibly decrease in the late years of his career. Naturally his place will be set finally only after he retires. Djokovic passed by Becker and now is at #9. Due to adding of old data Laver bypassed Vilas and moved one up to #12.

    Numbers of non-active players are changing, because in some categories higher watermarks are increasing: Federer in accumulated slam ranking and in matches won in Slams, Nadal – in rated ranking, Connors – in number of tournaments won (due to old data)
