Here mate. Blake doesn't get points from a WO, so if he loses tomorrow, he'll get QF points, not SF points (in the race). If Federer played a point and retired, Blake would already be qualified or much closer to it, I think.
Then Tsonga making the final, beating Davydenko, let's say, and he and Blake would make it.
I didn't check this scenario, but someone can do it for me.
