Djokovic poised to overtake Nadal

I would be shocked if Nadal passes Federer for No. 1 in London next week.

I will not be surprised at all if Djokovic overtakes Nadal for No. 2.

Re: Djokovic poised to overtake Nadal

I think Nadal overtaking Fed is just as unlikely as Djokovic overtaking Nadal.

Re: Djokovic poised to overtake Nadal

Most probably , Fed'll end the year at top spot. The title though can still be Djoko's or Federer's or Murray's depending on his condition post injury. I'll be surprised if Rafa won any of his round robin matches.

Re: Djokovic poised to overtake Nadal

very very intriguing WTF indeed.

just had a look at the current ATP rankings:

and by next sunday, the following ranking changes could happen amongst the top 5:

A)fed could lose the no.1 ranking to rafa. (945 pts diff)
B)rafa could lose the no.2 ranking to nole. (1,295 pts diff)
C)nole could lose the no.3 ranking to muzza. (1,280 pts diff)
D)muzza could lose the no.4 ranking to JMDP. (645 pts diff)

bring on the matches already i say!!!

NOLE - RAFA - ROGER - DELPO - MUZZA - TSONGA

Also supporting: Rusty, Pics, Nalby, Nando, Baggy, Kei, Isner, Blake, Kolya, Berdych, Richie, Soderling, Gil

Ana - Wozzy - Vika - Kimmy - Makiri

AGASSI,RAFTER,SAFIN

Re: Djokovic poised to overtake Nadal

"If Nadal brings his B game to London, Djokovic will drop him to No. 3."

That Guerry Smith is assuming Nole will win WTF easily. That is quite a big an assumption. Personally... yes, I believe it's MORE probable that Djoko takes the #2 spot than Nadal becoming #1. But I still don't think it'll happen.

Re: Djokovic poised to overtake Nadal

This sounds eerily familiar to something ... January... 2008?

Yeah..

Re: Djokovic poised to overtake Nadal

Hmmm. I wouldn't say it's unlikely he'll manage to achieve #2 at the WTF - though it's possible.

At the start of 2010 - yeah, I'd say he has a good chance (though, he did this year too).

Novak Djokovic
Fernando Verdasco Richard Gasquet
Janko Tipsarevic

Jurgen Melzer
Gilles Simon David Nalbandian
Mikhail Youzhny

Robin Soderling
Viktor Troicki Fernando Gonzalez
Nikolay Davydenko

Re: Djokovic poised to overtake Nadal

Nole has had the chance to reach #2 more than once, I'm not very sure if he's gonna do it or not right now, I still remember that loss in the MM tournament just before AO

Rafael "The Matador of Spin" Nadal
Roger “The Magician of Precision” Federer
Del Potro, Ferrer, Haas, Zeballos

Re: Djokovic poised to overtake Nadal

If Feds & Nads both crash out early at the WTF, Djoko will have quite a shot to take over BOTH of them at AO2010.
