Is possible for Federer to end this year #1 ??

He just won the usopen..
now there are 344 point of diference on the race with nadal..

madrid and paris gives 100 (200)
the master cup 150
basel 50
tokio (50?)

Roger needs to win everything.. and wait for nadal to loose at least at QF in the master series events..
and only one win at the master cup.

what do you think?.. roger still has chances?..

Marcelo Rios: Most talented player of all times..

Fernando Gonzalez: Most hard hitting player of all times

Nicolas Massu: The only player of all time to show that he only needs guts (and zero tennis) to reach the top 10

Chile: The country with more "garra" of all times

Mathematically, I think there is a chance.

Realistically, nah...

I don't expect Rafa to bomb out early in Madrid, Masters & Shanghai.

Vamos Rafa

no, he doesnt because he wont win that much
Nadal can take the rest of the year off and still top the race

Probs not
Nadal would need to take some time off, and Roger would need to win most of his 5 remaining events.

What's funny is that Nadal's best year and Federer's worst year = still an open race for #1 well after the US Open. Federer usually snaps it up a lot earlier.

Maybe Roger can win Roland Garros.......

Federer doesn't deserve #1 for 2008. Go back and watch the FO final again.

Re: Is possible for Federer to end this year #1 ??

well,now that roger has won the US open he will go away and think of his schedule. don't be surprised if he only plays the TMC whilst uses the rest of the year to catch up on all his training and fine tuning for 2009.

Roger Federer


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

Federer's like a unknown time-bomb this year -_-

The BIGGEST (borderline delusional) fan of players on General Message Board according to Forehander:

Borna Coric: Crowdmaker
Nick Krygios: Dan.
Tommy Haas: Leng Jai
Sebastien Grosjean: Myself
Novak Djokovic: Chiico (Leader of the No1e Cult)

Nah, Rafa will take #1 and he deserves it, who cares, Roger just showed that playing his worst tennis in years he is good enough to make 3 grand slam finals and win one of them.

His worst year is better than Andy Roddick's best year ever.

Mathematically, sure.

What's more important is getting Slams 14 and 15 next year.

Roger Federer

It's possible, extremely unlikely, but possible.

YOU CANNOT BE SERIOUS

Re: Is possible for Federer to end this year #1 ??

Yes, he could end #1, but it looks to me very difficult. If we subtract the points that each player will drop between now and the end of the season after Shanghai, the total looks like this, by my calculation.

Nadal 6075
Federer 4605
Djokovic 4375

This means that in order to get to #1, Federer would need to earn 1500 more points than Nadal over the remainder of the season, the difference of a GS win and a MS win. This could occur by winning both remaining MS and Shanghai, with Nadal earning minimum points at all events. The bigger problem for Federer is clearly Djokovic, who can catch him for #3 if he outgains him by 250 points or so, which would be the difference in a Shanghai final. Djokovic has a big advantage because he sucked at both Paris and Shanghai last year. So, even with Djokovic dropping points in New York, the chase for #2 is still on strong.
