How far will Nadal slide down in the Rankings?

After failing to defend his Australian Open title, Nadal will now be rank at #4 when the new rankings are published on Feb 1. This will be his lowest ranking since June 2005 - almost 5 years. With his injury and recovery, Nadal is sure to slide further down the rankings as he is defending a lot of points in the first five months of the year.

His current ranking points include the following:

Tournament - Points - Drop Off Date

Rotterdam - 300 - Feb 15, 2010
Indian Wells - 1,000 - March 22, 2010
Monte Carlo - 1,000 - April 19, 2010
Barcelona - 500 - April 26, 2010
Rome - 1,000 - May 3, 2010

The above points total 3,800 - more than the number of points that #8 Robin Soderling won last year.

Two Questions:
1. How far will he slide down the rankings before the French Open?
2. If he's not in the top 4 come the French Open, will the tournament take an exception and bump his seeding into the top4?

Re: How far will Nadal slide down in the Rankings?

He probably will drop out of the top 4 which is sad, defending all or at least most of that will take an inhumane effort currently.

Will Federer regain the #1 spot and break Sampras's record for most weeks at the top?

Roger // Rafa // Raonic // Söderling // Goffin // Ivo // Wawrinka // Baker // Delpo

Re: How far will Nadal slide down in the Rankings?

They don't make seeding exceptions anywhere. Wimbledon just has its own rules, giving added weight to results on grass. Given the changes to grass, I'm not sure why anymore, guess that's the part of the tradition important to maintain. In any case, the only way to have a seeding different then you ranking would suggest in other slams is if you have protected ranking that would grant you one AFAIK.

Well at least the streak would end against the next best player out there, a 6 time GS champ so far.

Would love to see a Nadal Federer QF.. Won't happen though.. Draw organizers won't allow it.

Why not? Unless he's given a protected ranking, once he falls off the top 4, he has as much chance as anyone to face Federer in the quarters.

Re: How far will Nadal slide down in the Rankings?

I guess the worst case scenario is that he'll slide out of the top 8. Which means he may face one of the top players in the fourth round of Rolland Garros.

You really think they don't play with the draw?
