Will Nadal be no.1 after Wimbledon ?

Even the haters must admit that this is an option to take into consideration...

Please discuss...

Q. Do you think you would have been able to play as well as you played today, or you think you would have pulled out from the game if it wasn't the Masters Cup final?

ROGER FEDERER: No, Roger Federer doesn't pull out. Otherwise he doesn't walk on court (smiling).


After losing to Nalbandian in 2005 TMC final...

No! Too much points to defend until Queens and Federer's too good performance on Slams

1) Federer 2) Nadal order will be completely o.k

Re: Will Nadal be no.1 after Wimbledon ?

Given that Nadal has very few points to defend at RG and Wimbledon and Federer the maximum 4000 I'd say there is about an 80% chance that Nadal will be the No. 1 after Wimbledon. Might even be 81%...

Depends if he plays SoderKing at RG and/or Wimbledon, if he doesn't then he will.

Re: Will Nadal be no.1 after Wimbledon ?

Possible scenario, if I've added it up right.. assuming Federer and Nadal defend all their points up to the FO and nothing changes before then (defending Barcelona, Rome and Madrid respectively), that's a gap of 3695... if Rafa wins the FO, and Federer gets to the final, it's 1075, and going into Wimbledon discounting any points gained from Queens/Halle, Rafa can get it back by getting to the final even if Federer wins.

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

in short, rafa has to get on a decent rampage from rome until wimbledon? quite possible but as a nadal fan i am not looking beyond french open at the moment.......

Federer will not do well this clay season so I say he will regain number 1 after Wimbledon.

Re: Will Nadal be no.1 after Wimbledon ?

It's very possible. He can even get to number 1 after RG if he manages to keep his points in Rome, Barcelona and Madrid (likely, imo), win RG (very likely) and if Federer loses before the semis (not so likely but tennis is full of surprises).
