Nah it'll be a long time before YE #1 is secured, the earliest it's even been secured was September one year I think. Doubt anyone's going to take him down though.

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

Fed probably needs to retain Wimbledon and Cincinatti, and retake US Open I guess. Nadal made semis at US Open last year so can't gain massively there.

Re: so is Rafas no.1 ranking secured for this year?

Well depending on what happens at Wimby and during the U.S. Open Series, he could secure No. 1 before the US Open.

There are times, rare moments, when the greatest of champions fall. Maybe because of a bad day or maybe there's pain within. One thing you can be sure of, is that all the great champions will bounce back again. It may not be today. It may not be tomorrow. But one day, they'll be back again. And they'll be better than ever. Why??? Because that's what great champions do. They survive.

statistically yeah, but he defends 0 points at wimby and almost none in the later half of the year. only a uso HF and 0 points at the WTF.

Re: Rafa, welcome back at world no.1

He deserves to be there having gone unbeaten in the clay court season.

Of course things could have been different as Federer was only 2 points away from beating Del Potro in the US Open final (which would have given him another 800 points) and also only 2 points away from beating Davydenko at the World Tour Finals semi (which would have given him another 400 points). As it is, Nadal will lead by 310 points on Monday. It illustrates how fine the margins are sometimes in tennis.

Re: Rafa, welcome back at world no.1

It's so gratifying to see Rafa make it back to number one when most people doubted. A privilege and honor to witness such greatness~ come on people start hating. Bring it on; belittle him, doubt him some more, disrespect him~ do what you must. Just know when you do, it makes moments like today that much more special. A great day to be a Rafa fan, congrats to all my fellow Nadal fans, let's just take it all in and enjoy!!!
