Del Potro & maybe Cilic.

If Delpo stays at number 5 he's obviously got the best chance.

The way things are going though Nadal could be number five soon.

Nadal Federer QF at Wimbledon? Now that would be interesting!

Best opportunity would be the early rounds, so you're looking at guys ranked 17 and below.

A Nadal-Federer QF at RG would be even more interesting and dangerous for Fed's SF streak...

Haas on his way back

Could see Nadal or Del Potro doing it at Roland Garros, but obviously that depends on their rankings.

Nadal, Potro or Murray, depending on who is at 5th (and draws Feds quarter).

I guess Rafael Nadal seems to be the only guy who can bring him down. Well if Nadal is out with injury and drops out of the top four, and Federer draws him at RG -- you can bet the streak ends right there.
