Re: Will Federer Ever Get the #1 Ranking Back?

Nadal will have to lose more - conditions: injury, fit Del Potro, somebody else - & Federer will have to win more - conditions: new coach, motivation transplant, better nanny - so it's not impossible. But he doesn't have time to wait for Nadal to decline in 2 years, probably can't beat Nadal himself any more, the main threats to Nadal could hardly be worse off, & his own game is in disarray, so the prospects for the foreseeable future are bleak. Having said that, I know Agassi was able to nab the Number One spot from time to time well into his 30s.
