Murray moved from #3 to #2. Other notable mover is Kevin Anderson – from #17 to # 10. New names: players who entered to 20 are – Karlovic, Gasquet, Simon(not really new), Thiem, Goffin.

Best total Ranking in Slams (weight - 4.0):

Djokovic, Novak_______3600
Wawrinka, Stanislas___1936
Federer, Roger________1494
Murray, Andy__________1450
Gasquet, Richard_______784
Berdych, Tomas_________750
Cilic, Marin___________706
Tsonga, Jo-Wilfried____654
Nadal, Rafael__________557
Anderson, Kevin________554

Lopez, Feliciano_______397
Raonic, Milos__________372
Bautista-Agut, Roberto_354
Troicki, Viktor________333
Tomic, Bernard_________333
Goffin, David__________333


If we are not talking about Novak (which is kind of elephant in the room – he is off the charts in any category), then Wawrinka moved from #4 to #2. Last year he also won a Slam, but this year he backed up it much better in other slams. Gasquet was outside top 20 last year and this year he landed at #5 due to very solid performance: R32, R16, QF, SF
Other new entrants are Troicki, Tomic and Goffin, who occupied places 18-20. Which kind of enforces the notion about absence of new names making a mark.

Rated_ranking_(weight - 2.5):

Djokovic, Novak________518.5625
Federer, Roger_________248.7059
Murray, Andy___________222.0000
Wawrinka, Stanislas____165.6818

Dimitrov, Grigor________48.5000
Sock, Jack______________48.3158
Goffin, David___________46.0800
Kyrgios, Nick___________45.6667


This result of Novak is the best in Open Era, therefore all yearly rankings for previous years will be now normalized by this high watermark and the numbers for previous years will change accordingly (decrease). The best mover is Gasquet – from #26 last year to #10. Other new players in top 20 are: Isner, Simon, Sock, Goffin.

Win-loss percentage in non-Slam tournaments (weight - 1.5):

Djokovic, Novak________91.67

Karlovic, Ivo__________61.11
Herbert, Pierre-Hugues_60.00
Kohlschreiber, Philipp_59.57
Thiem, Dominic_________59.26


Best mover is Andy Murray – from #7 to #3. New faces: Gasquet, Sock, Isner, Simon, Anderson, Tsonga, Karlovic, Herbert, Kohlschreiber, Thiem. Majority of them is not so new – just returning from injuries. There is a statistical aberration though: Jan Mertl played one DC rubber and won it. This gave him 100% in this category, therefore all other results will be normalized against it. Each calculation method has drawbacks and loopholes (((

The most drastic mover is of course Nadal – from #1 to #11… Djokovic assumed #1 position. Wawrinka rose from #5 to #2. Murray – from #6 to #3. New entrants are Gasquet, Anderson.
Paire, Troicki, Kyrgios, Lopez, Tomic, Isner, Goffin are all sharing places 15-22. Kind of entered top 20, but not quite….

Matches won in Slams (weight – 1.4):

Djokovic, Novak_______27
Wawrinka, Stanislas___21
Murray, Andy__________19

Bautista-Agut, Roberto_8

Tomic, Bernard_________8


Novak occupies 1st place here for the 5 years running. The best mover is Wawrinka – from #8 to sharing #2. New entrants are: Gasquet, Kyrgios, Troicki, Goffin, Isner, Tomic.

Tournaments won (weight – 2.0):

Djokovic, Novak________11
Federer, Roger__________6
Murray, Andy____________5*
Ferrer, David___________5
Wawrinka, Stanislas_____4
Nadal, Rafael___________3
Nishikori, Kei__________3
Thiem, Dominic__________3
Garcia-Lopez, Guillermo_2
Gasquet, Richard________2
Berdych, Tomas__________2


I will have to look it up if there was a year with so little multi-tournament winners. Total number of tournaments is shrinking and Novak gobbled a lot this year, leaving less for the rest…
Murray moved from sharing #7-8 to sharing 3-4. Ferrer – from outside top 20 to sharing the place with Murray.
Other “new faces” this year are Thiem, Gasquet and GGL. Only Domi Thiem is really new here.

* - this is a reminder that I award a tournament win for the player who won live singles rubber in DC final, while being on the winning team.

% of tournaments won out of all entered (weight – 2.0):

Djokovic, Novak________68.75

Wawrinka, Stanislas____18.18
Nishikori, Kei_________15.79

Murray moved from #8 to sharing #3-4. Ferrer from #27 to sharing #3-4. New entrants are: Rajeev Ram, Gasquet, Thiem, Mahut, GGL, Raonic, Tsonga, Paire, Sock, Estrella, Kohls and Simon. Some of them – due to winning one tournament and not playing much elsewhere.

    If you look just at Novak’s number, compared to last year it is almost the same. But since everything is normalized by maximum, the numbers of everyone else are decimated. Last year Federer was at the 2nd place with 15+, this year – with 11+. Roger is slipping a bit in absolute numbers, but not by much. The difference is due to Novak’s historical season.

    Murray moved from #7 to #3. New entrants are Gasquet, Simon, Tomic, Thiem, Troicki, Goffin. Only two of them for the first time: Thiem and Goffin. We are thin on the new talents so far…

    Novak’s 2015 yielded virtually the same result as Federer’s 2006. It is at #2 of the best years of all players since the beginning of Open Era, a small fraction behind #`1. Since I assign all the weights arbitrary, and changing just one weight slightly will tip the scale to the other side, you can consider this result as my opinion ))
