Here is a list of available Clay tournaments...

Masters - Madrid, MC, Rome
ATP 500 - Acapulco, Barcelona, Hamburg
ATP 250 - Bastad, Bogota, Bucharest, Buenos Aires, Casablanca, Dusseldorf (Team), Estoril, Gstaad, Houston, Kitzbuhel, Munich, Nice, Sao Paulo, Stuttgart, Umag, Vina del Mar

Total - 23 Tournaments

Hard ...

WTF - Barclays London
Slams - Australian Open, US Open
Masters - Cincinnati, Indian Wells, Miami, Montreal, Paris, Shanghai
ATP 500 - Basel, Beijing, Dubai, Memphis, Rotterdam, Tokyo, Valencia, Washington
ATP 250 - Atlanta, Auckland, Bangkok, Brisbane, Chennai, Delray Beach, Doha, Kuala Lumpur, Marseille, Metz, Montpellier, Moscow, San Jose, St. Petersburg, Stockholm, Sydney, Vienna, Winston-Salem, Zagreb

Total 36 Tournaments

Grass...

Slam - Wimbledon
ATP 250 - Eastbourne, Halle, London-Queens, Newport, 's-Hertogenbosch

Total 6 Tournaments

List source is - http://www.atpworldtour.com/Tournaments/Tournament-Landing.aspx

Points available are

Clay - 2000 (RG), 3 x 1000 (MC, Rome, Madrid), 3 x 500 , 15 x 250 (ATP - leaving Dusseldorf Powerhorse out) = 10,250 8,750
HC - 1500 (WTF), 4000 (USO, AO), 6 x 1000 (MSes), 8 x 500 , 19 x 250 = 20,250
Grass - 2000, 5 x 250 = 3,250 3,750 (Should I even bother Wah )

E&OE Run

So what is your conclusion about it?
I think it would be even more informative to sort those surfaces per week (and points) than just by numbers. ...though it woudl not make much difference. On grass for instance one cannot win more than 2750 points and he will have to stick to a crazy schedule.

BTW LF - Did you manage to get all the stats about players ground covering...per year...per match....etc...? Those woudl be the most interesting stats to have in tennis nowadays.

I will add Calendar dates/Weeks. It is possible for players to play on just Clay or Hard and be successful, without crossing over to other, if there are health-related concerns.

You are correct, natural Grass, is much harder to maintain as well.

I would love to see a Grass 500 or Masters, if possible.

That is a very slow project and data sources are very scarce. I have tried to keep it going, but public information is not easily available. I have connections at the local University, which is what I am exploring right now. I hope I can finish or at least give it some shape and post information here. Thanks for asking.

I suppose we're about to find that out with Nadal.

Welcome back LF. But as Tenez said, what's your point here? Also, a few mistakes. Clay: you are not counting the ATP 500 in your total points (so 3 x 500 = 1500 are missing) and Grass: 5 x 250 = 4 x 250 + 250 = 1,250 not 1,750 Doh ( sorry ) Also, there should be other points counted on how many points are available for a single player, out of all these tournaments, in which case, you should not double count for the ones that fall at the same time, no?...

This is why I said "per week" woudl be a good way to measure the spread...but then I realised the proportion allocated per surface would be quite similar.

None of this would've been discussed had Nadal not moaned about too many hard courts...after happily playing on them all these years.....can anyone really see anything changing as a result of it?
I can't!
So what's the point....

If anything needs to be changed that's the speed of those courts. Nothing drastic, just enough to discourage ridiculous running into stands in order to retrieve the ball.

Corrected. I was looking at available points, not if two events fell on the same week. http://www.atpworldtour.com/Tournaments/Event-Calendar.aspx

Some of this would have to be on a specific players schedule for that player to accumulate, and as you and T point out would be per week (excluding DC we have).
