Re: federer secures #1 ranking for now, take that rafatards

Thanks for that. What is it, 4 weeks until he's under pressure again in Dubai? And if things go against him here it could be out of his hands there.

The Wit and Wisdom of the Tennis Journalist, Indian Wells 2004

ROGER FEDERER: Yeah, I remember this one time when I went on a vacation on the Maldives. That was in the year 2001, I think. I went to this spa. I went to walk around with my girlfriend. I walk in, and we want to book a spa. This guy goes, "AHH, I remember you. You beat Sampras. I saw you on TV." That was like, really, how can you remember me? This guy has probably never been off his island and still knows me. I was a little bit shocked. Then I went to play tennis with him because he was actually the tennis teacher. It was nice.

Q. Were you naked at the time in the spa?

ROGER FEDERER: No. It was at the front desk. I didn't walk in naked.

His 5th best is 55, and if he wins AO he'll trail by 100 points (assuming Nole beats Fed - must add that I find that scenario extremely unlikely). So he needs 155 points from Rotterdam, which equates to final.

But then again, Fed must defend all the points from Dubai, and even if he wins it again, he can't really prevent Nadal of reaching the final at least. So, in the case of Nadal beating Jo and then Joe, it's likely he'll assume #1 for a week or so, until IW & Miami, where he defends 500+125 points and Roger just 5+75.

If Federer loses to Djokovic and Nadal wins the AO, his lead will only be 100 points and Nadal will likely become #1 during february.

Hrmm I'm sure Fed will be happy with 4 consecutive years.

But yeah, if Djoko beats him, he could very well lose number 1 for a bit (however he should regain it in IW/Miami).

Thanks, we did, but we will also enjoy the memory of it for the long years to come, until someone surpasses it.

Are you nuts? If he wins AO he's all but guaranteed to remain #1 till Wimby, and probably even after that.

nadal will NEVER be no. 1 nadal is going to lose of lot of points during the clay season. Too many people can beat him now even on clay.

when we say that Nadal will be no.1 we take the worst case scenario for Fed (losing in SF and Nadal winning the title). If Fed wins the title (Nadal would obviously be finalist) the gap would be too big for Nadal to have a chance even if Fed loses all matches till IW and Nadal wins them all

Well Rafatards shouldn't exactly have counted on Blake to get their hopes up.

Oh, we were though. Nadal's forum here has been buzzing with the expectation that Blake (or Berdych) would take Fed out. Can't believe it hasn't worked out that way.

This has truly silenced us.
We thought #1 was a lock.
