also, unlike his 2011 points, his 2012 points are distributed relatively evenly, so he should stay no1 for quite some time, unless muzza or fed go on rampage.
Yeah -- Fed has more points to defend in March and April than Djoko, I think. Seems that way.
Is Djoko skipping Madrid for sure? Crap tournament. I hope he does. It's particularly crap because the surface is so much different than RG. I remember when the women had Madrid right before RG instead of the ATP. The winner usually did not do well at RG.
Then also there is Nadal coming back into the mix. I don't expect much from tbh. It's very difficult to come back full strength after being out so long.
