When will Djokovic claim the No.2 ranking?

Now the question, when will Djokovic claim the no.2 ranking(from FEDERER). Kid is brilliant on hardcourt with the most lethal double-handed backhand on tour and the best depth of ground strokes i have ever seen from a player in the history of this sport. He also has the best movement on hardcourt i have ever seen. Amazing skills on slow/medium outdoor hard court, he was born on hard. Forget his clay,grass results- he is not made for these surfaces, yet still managed to bring his hard game onto some clay and grass events(see hamburg vs Nadal, rome fast clay, obliterating opposition in queens prior to brainfart in final vs Nadal which Djoko should have won ).

Events that djoko can get to help him gain the no.2 position. Focus djoko!!

-Firstly, defend Rogers cup title(play a good level vs Nadal in Semi)

-Cincinatti masters title- need a big win here, didn't get any points last yr so good

-win olympics

-win or atleast defend finals USOPEN

-Get some indoor titles under belt e.g. one of PAris or MAdrid (bombed out early last yr in Paris tonsilitis so this helps)

-Gotta defend Vienna.

-Thai open - win it.

-MAsters cup - better more efficient showing

-Hope Fedex continues at a reduced pace - fed can drop some points in USOPEN,Basel,MAdrid(finals),MAsters cup(winner), Cincinnati(winner) but can gain in Paris, Olympics Madrid and Stockholm if he wins

Re: When will Djokovic claim the No.2 ranking?

Nadal is closer to Fed than Djoko is to Nadal.

Take it a step at a time.

Sure the AO was a great achievement for Djoko, but I'd wait a bit more before I proclaimed him top of the top.

I'd like to see him repeat the US Open Final, then It's more than safe to say Djoko is the real deal on HC.

He starts defending points now. Whole different ball game than just gaining points.

So we might as well start discussing who will be Nº3. I don't see Federer as Nº3, his giant ego wouldn't allow him so he rather pull out a demi-Henin and retires.

No... Nadal will not be able to defend his points on clay and grass, federer will continue to slump. He will get back to the top spot soon after though

Your end of the year 2008 predictions are practically impossible, unless Nadal breaks his legs.

Federer still has to get to the US Open final and his form this year on HC leaves much to be desired.
