Will Nadal ever reach No.1 position?

Considering Federer's not going anywhere anytime soon + new youngsters are getting better and better (Murray, Djokovic, Gasquet) will nadal ever reach no.1 position he so desperately wants?

Novak Djokovic Rafael Nadal


David Ferrer - Leyton Hewitt - David Nalbandian - Marcos Baghdatis - Janko Tipsarevic - Tommy Haas


AJDE NOLE!

Re: Will Nadal ever reach No.1 position?

i have no idea actually. but it would be VERY disappointing on his part to never be no.1 yet was no.2 for such a loooong time. So close yet so far would be quite fitting.

Roger Federer


Richard Gasquet,David Nalbandian, James Blake,Marcos Baghdatis,Fabrice Santoro,Jonas Bjorkman,Mikhail Youzhny,Fernado Verdasco, Stan Warinka

zcess81, you're new here so you may not know. But FYI there have been lots and lots of polls asking this very same question already.

Re: Will Nadal ever reach No.1 position?

I think by the time Federer's gone Nadal could be too plagued by injuries to be No. 1., or outplayed by the up and comers.

Or alternatively, if sticks to a smarter schedule, it could happen for him. If he breaks the Wimbledon curse sooner rather than later, then I see him as no. 1 even with RFed around (assuming Rafa still wins the French).

Re: Will Nadal ever reach No.1 position?

Nadal's best shot at ever getting the no.1 spot is at the AO and if he doesn't get it then he may never do it.

Re: Will Nadal ever reach No.1 position?

I'm surprised that so many people voted no. Once Fed retires, Nadal is the most likely to become #1. Then Djoke.

Wimbledon Upsets:
Safin def. Djokovic 6-4, 7-6, 6-2
Schuettler def. Blake 6-3, 6-7, 4-6, 6-4, 6-4
Kudryavtseva def. Sharapova 6-2, 6-4
Tipsarevic def. Roddick 6-7, 7-5, 6-4, 7-6
Dancevic def. Nalbandian 6-4, 6-2, 6-4
Zheng def. Ivanovic 6-1, 6-4
Tanasugarn def. Jankovic 6-3, 6-2
Radwanska def. Kuznetsova 6-4, 1-6, 7-5

Djokovic can surpass him after AO, I'd pick him as the next #1 more than Nadal.

Re: Will Nadal ever reach No.1 position?

nadal might be too burnt out by the time fed is done. he may be younger, but his lifespan might just last as long as fed's. he's only 21, yet his injuries every season make him look like he's already 26-28 sadly

the only time nadal might feel "#1" is when he led the race during the clay court season.
