It probable, but not confirmed. Nadal is on 8885 'race' points and Federer 5395, a lead of 3490. With the US Open worth 2000, two Masters Series worth 1000 each and the World Tour Finals worth 1500 maximum, Federer could still catch him.

Tennis has no blood passport system, and does basically no out of competition testing.

The methods and drugs used by Armstrong in 1999 would work in tennis right now, with zero chance of being caught (not slightly surprising to anyone familiar with the topic, btw).

Not too much. It's unlikely Federer will win all those events and besides, Nadal is likely to collect decent points in all of them too. I think it is almost assured that Nadal will stay #1 until the beginning of Monte Carlo at least which is about 33 weeks away. This will put him at 91 weeks and 8th on the list.

Even if Nadal loses in the first match of every event he plays between now and Monte Carlo, he will still have 7540 points come April. At the moment #2 has only 7215 points hence it is looking very good for Nadal.

I thought that too

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
