So when can Rafa go back to number 2

now that Murray has not defended his title in Cincy.

So if Fed wins the Rafa stays at 3. Well Go Fed, but it sucks the guy with a slam is behind a guy who just has some masters titles.

In all likelihood it will be a classic Nadal vs. Federer Final tomorrow unless Nadal is so out of shape he can't even beat The Joker tonight.

It does seem unfair, but again rankings points are from a years worth and Murray has done a solid job of being consistent throughout the past year in overall tournaments even though his Grand Slam appearances haven't been spectacular. Plus it would be unfair and quite strange if all you needed to do was do well in Grand Slams and your ranking will stay up.

Federer / Haas / Safin / Gaudio / Kuerten / Youzhny / Nadal / Gonzalez / Ljubicic / Hewitt / Soderling / Wawrinka / Coria / Nalbandian / Kohlschreiber

Re: So when can Rafa go back to number 2

At least Fed did all that was in his might to Restore The Order today.
Should Rafa win his semi tonight, I don't expect he'll be as helpful tomorrow, but who knows...

I can't see Nadal beating the Djoker and Federer back to back. If Nadal reaches the final Federer will be eager to put one over him before the US open.

Yeah. Ferrero should be no.3 and Hewitt no.4. Is Thomas johansson still about??? I love it how master series matter all of a sudden!!!

Re: So when can Rafa go back to number 2

Federer could lose to Nadal on purpose and thus ensure that Nadal won't be on his side of the draw in New York, hehe... but he didn't win 15 slams by running from challenges, so it won't happen...

Release the Stanimal!!

Re: So when can Rafa go back to number 2

If Nadal wins, then the final would actually matter. The only knock on Federer is his head to head with Nadal. In some ways, then, MM tournament matches against Nadal matter more than winning more slams without playing Nadal in them. So I don't think Federer woudl tank to get Nadal on teh other side of the draw.

Another deluded RafitoTARD, perhaps?
So in your own words Federer would prefer to win Cincy beating Nadal, than winning the USOpen if Nadal fails(again) to make the finals?:retard:

Then, according to your "logic", Fed's victory in Madrid over Nadull mattered more than his sixth crown at Wimbledon???
That's BS!

Maybe now.. After he collected the 15th slam.. his main focus should be to make the h2h against Nadal a little less lopsided.
