MTF would surely collapse and the haters would surely, 100%, start saying shit. I mean they said shit even when Roger won Wimbledon to become #1.
I don't think it would've been possible, he really needed those 2k points to get there, only in case Nole got injured or something. Dunno, in 2009 Del Potro won a slam but still was #5, while both Nole and Andy were higher and without a slam, I don't remember anyone saying then he's real #2

“There’s so many athletes, tennis players around the world,” he continued, trying to put his life into some kind of perspective, “they want to be the best in what they do. They want to succeed. Many of them, they don’t succeed in the end. I’m fortunate to have this opportunity and succeed.”
