Question Once Roger drops to No.3/No.4?

What do you think?
There is big picture in the poll options. There is also a bit delicate difference between No.3 and No.4

Retire.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Re: Once Roger drops to No.3/No.4?

Well, you suggest two very interesting options. If he goes down to #3, he would likely be ranked between #2 and #4 for a while, but who knows how long. At some point his ranking would go up, or go down. But if he drops to #4???? Oh man, in that case he would be ranked lower than #3. Still, #5 would be lower ranked that him, so that's something to watch. In the end, I guess he would also either rise his ranking, or lower it, depending on many factors.

That's what I think would happen.

Nadal career prediction: 6 RG, 2 Wimbledon, 1 Australian Open, 1 US Open, 2 Master Cup, 20 Master Series, 65 titles.
(Predicted before RG 2008 when he had 3xRG)

I think Roger will stay at nr 2 until his like 80 or something. He might go back to nr 1 for a week and a half when he hits 41, but after that he will slip back a spot again. When he is 80 he will retire im sure.

Re: Once Roger drops to No.3/No.4?

The lower he goes, the worse the media scrutiny, causing increased frustration and higher probability of getting tight on big points.
Essentially, he's fucked.
