This is my first:
swebright, you mean like Nadal raked inn points in MC and Barcelona while Fed was out?
The last 12 months Rafa and Fed has played a similar amount of tourneys, Rafa in fact one more than Fed. The #2 ranking will be very well deserved indeed, if he can find a way to beat Berdych tomorrow.
Looner, Fed have an excellent chance of #1 come Wimbledon, but if not there he could esily get it later - with very few points to defend from Rogers Cup and Cincinnatti and just an SF in US Open. If we look at points post US Open he has a commanding lead over Djokovic.
I had not learned to qoute at the time, in fact I learned most tricks around here slowly. Didn't discover User CP until July.
