Re: Will Federer become number 1 again?

I think it'll be very difficult. Never say never, especially if Federer somehow grabs Wimbledon and the USO, but I'd say it's pretty unlikely.

Re: Will Federer become number 1 again?

No, he's too old and too lazy for that.

Players who make me...
:Federer - Davydenko - FitDave - Cilic
:Safin - Monfils - Non-Slam Federer.
:Nadal - Roddick - Murray

Re: Will Federer become number 1 again?

It'll be hard, a lot of things will have to go right.

Fed knew he was walking a fine line, and didn't seem to care.
I'm sure he could of put in the extra effort he puts in for GS's to do better after the AO to insure he had a few extra points to play with.
The post AO performances were ridiculously pitiful compared to the level he played at the AO.
From the fans point of view, some of them came to see Fed at some of those matches as a one time thing and left with little, a shame.

Re: Will Federer become number 1 again?

The answer is yes. Probably next year on clay season.
Next year Nadal defend 1000 points from Monte Carlo, Rome and Madrid. And Roland Garros 2000 points.

Small chances are to Federer back his no. 1 this year.

Yes, it is inevitable as "Can Rafa Enjoy Even 24 Hrs. As RG Champion Before People Start Speculating Whether Roger Federer Will Regain No.1 ranking?" questions.

Re: Will Federer become number 1 again?

Rog is very attached to the records, certainly not like to have stopped when he was close to break the record of Sampras. In my opinion it is good that Nadal is No. 1 now because this will give the motivation for that Federer not only records but also to the years ended No. 1. Had broken the record of the week maybe would not have imported too much of the year, but now is different, it will now be focused on this goal. In 2007 the situation of the Race was not much different from now, then Federer doing well for the rest of the year can do it very well.

Re: Will Federer become number 1 again?

Possibly. Weren't people calling Rafa a "lock" for the YE #1 just over a year ago, then two months after that Federer was safely sitting at #1 again. Likewise I couldn't have expected after this year's Oz Open that a few months later Nadal (with so many points to defend) would be sitting at #1 again. Basically, things change very very quickly in tennis. I'd frankly be surprised if Federer NEVER got back there.

Re: Will Federer become number 1 again?

US Open could be the best chance for federer if he wins it(And wimbledon) + a few MS at end of year and masters cup.

Djokovic, even thought he has been playing shit... if he would win wimbledon somehow, then get to the final of the US Open + some master series wins/finals could sneak up there for the end of the year as well

Re: Will Federer become number 1 again?

does it REALLY matter at this point? he has been repeatedly saying he has no more big goals in his career, he is playing for fun and trying to enjoy the competition, he gave his fans and admirers enough success and achievements already, time to enjoy a living legend playing in front of our eyes while it lasts.

Re: Will Federer become number 1 again?

Well, it's too early to answer that, but i think it deppends more of Nadal than Rogie. If Nadal can keep of of physical problems and injuries, i think that the oppurtunitie of seeing Federer returning to #1 spot it's very unlikely to happen...
