What I want to say, is that ranking will punish Federer for his attitude to tournaments other than Grand Slams. Nadal gained this year 3015 more than Roger in 5 Masters 1000. That's a huge difference!

3 REDUCED to 3 sets+byes master series on clay.

hamburg(neutral) changed to madrid(rafatard)

NONE on grass.

If i were Federer i would file a lawsuit to the atp

If Roger had 3 masters series tournamants on grass, like Rafa and his clay domain, it might be a different rankings story.

Roger is now like Serena - give me slams to win. I can't blame him.

punish his attitude??? LOL.

the guys have been #1 way longer than nadal. Let see how nadal manages his career when he logs as many miles as federer and has dominated to the same extent.

The numbers don't lie. You earn points by consistently going deep or winning tournaments. I like Fed but he has underwhelmed since winning AO.

It makes sense that Federer only wants to gear up for the slams. I don't fault him for that. He had the first time quarter final dismissal in years and years. We will see if that was just a fluke or if he will dominate for the second half of the year as he normally has done.

Fed's fault for slumping at Miami and Indian Wells. He was favored to win those and didn't. He can only blame himself for losing the #1 this early in the year

Rafa's done great at the MS events, Roger hasn't, so Rafa gets more points. It's not exactly revelatory.

Let me ask you OP, are you personally upset that Federer has underperformed there?

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

Ugh, I know. Even if he had played the level he had in 2009 at those tournaments he would have won both given how much the other top players collapsed there.

Actually, and someone correct me if I'm wrong, but I think Rafa only gained like 600 points from the Masters. Most of what he has is what he defended from last year.

Re: Rafa and Roger did the same at Slams this year, yet Rafa is 3015 points ahead of

Its easier for nadull to rack-up points this time of the year because of a weak clay court era & nadull happens to be the best on clay,but its difficult to do the same on HC because there is much more competion on relative to clay. I only wish we could have better clay courters today to REALLY challenge the 2nd best clay courter of the open era. You know you are in bad shape when the 2nd best clay courter of the era is playing on his WEAKEST surface.

The law of nature,only the strong survive.




THE GREAT TACTICAL RIVALRY OF THE OPEN ERA
FEDERER 10 VS TONI NADAL 20
ADVANTAGE TONI NADAL
RAPHEAL NADULL,A PRETTY FACE & MUSCLE
NOTHING MORE

Fed 2 nadull 13 fed is nadull CLAY TURKEY. THE REAL ERA 2003-2010.

Actually 400pts. He was a beaten finalist at Madrid and went one further

For me the most important are wins of Rafa. Then I look at Federer. So ofcourse if those results of Roger in Masters 1000 tournaments could help Rafa to regain No. 1 spot, then it's good for me. But I'm not a hater, so I don't get excited only because Roger has lost somewhere.

Oh dear... There are 6 Master 1000 on fast courts and 3 on clay... Federer has a huge advantage.
On Clay: 1GS + 3 Master 1000: 5.000 pts
On Hard: 2 GS + 6 Master 1000 + Tennis Master Cup: 13.000 pts
and if it is not enough, we have Wimbledon: 2000 pts more.
Isn't it enough for fast courters????
