Question How will Djokovic defend all those points? Will he fall down the rankings? How far?

He has 7 titles (almost 7000 points) to defend next year, so when it comes to defending all of that, how will he do it? He won't. So, how fast or hard will he fall? If he doesn't defend any of the titles, that's almost 3000 points lost, and that's if he reaches the final in all of them. Maybe he'll lose earlier in some of the tournaments? That means more points lost. Will he fall down the rankings? To no.3? No.4? Let's say he has the no.1 ranking then, will he just fall to no.2?


I think he'll defend a bit of the points (2500 let's say), but he'll fall down to no.3 in the rankings.

SLAMS: 2 WINS, 7 finals, 9 semi-finals, 7 quarter-finals...

That only depends on who wins the events next year. If they are spread relatively equally among two to four players, he won't fall as quickly as you think as long as he continues to go deep.

Yup, and also depends how others will defend their points as well. Rafa has both titles and finals this year, Murray has 1 slam final and one masters SF, etc. so it's not like they are defending 0 next year.

“There’s so many athletes, tennis players around the world,” he continued, trying to put his life into some kind of perspective, “they want to be the best in what they do. They want to succeed. Many of them, they don’t succeed in the end. I’m fortunate to have this opportunity and succeed.”

We will see what will he do end of this year. But these point will be too much him for defending probably.

Never ever give up

With the way he is playing now, he could dominate the field for the next few years. It all depends on slams. 2 slams a year could keep him no1 for a long time. We'll see...

Nole will not be winning two slams a year for the next few years.

People pay too much attention to points defending. All they show is the next set of points to come off the board. All that really matters is how well you do. If a player has had the best overall results over the past 52 weeks he will be #1 even if he had even better results over the past 53. It's not like you get a negative this year for doing better last year. The only real difference is the level of pressure, which hopefully professional athletes at the top of the game can handle.

How is winning every match that you play ever a bad thing?

Winning everything is never a good idea. Just look where it got Fed and Nadal (on clay) these past 5+ years.

If Fed and Nadal could go back and do it all over again, I'm sure they'd strive for mediocrity.

LOL, this will no doubt help you elevate murray's status via an artificial and superfluous ranking system. sad.

That's why his results till the end of the year are still very significant regardless or what Nadal does. Either way I can't see him slipping to anything below 2 unless he goes back into that horrible form he was in the last few years, which is probably impossible now.

Berdych | Murray | Tsonga | Monfils | Raonic | Soderling

It's no big deal for him defending all this points as he will be significantly the best on US hardcourt and indoor and his gap will be more or less 6000 points ahead at the end of the year.
Federer is too old and Nadal will mentally collapse as he has nothing else in his life except tennis and being DESTROYED like that will make him burnout in a kind of Coria syndrom.
