Well he's said this year his goal was to end the year as no 1 so i guess it's still a priority. However, it seems very unlikely. Nadal doesn't defend much and Federer defends 1 MS, 1 GS, 1 GS final and a other stuff. On the other hand, Nadal's highest stuff to defend are the SF in the USO and the F in a MS.

he said early this year that he was aiming at winning more tournaments than last year but he doesn't seem to be working that hard to achieve that so far... he's already one tournament short of last's year's.

That is true

I think he might have got a bit too relaxed after the AO. He's got 2 daughters now so I guess he doesn't train as much as he used to and that's very understandable. His life is just different now and his priorities have surely changed.

Re: Will Federer become number 1 again?

Remember who we're talking about...
I can't understand what some people say
I mean... We all know that clay isn't Roger's favorite surface.
And we all know that in other surfaces he's still the best... Just look some months back! In the AO he was unbeatable.
Nadal can't repeat that excelent clay-season next year.
Federer will be back to N°1, probably this year, probably next... But he's the king, his numbers speak by himself.

The king is the king, shut up and obey.

Re: Will Federer become number 1 again?

I agree with you Federer won't get it back this year without some luck. He might not get it back at all.

Federer and Nadal fan!

Re: Will Federer become number 1 again?

No he won't, UNLESS Rafa gets injured again soon AND Delpo doesn't come back healthy as expected AND Murray and Nole never pull out of their slumps AND Fed stops losing to every random player possible in early rounds at Masters events.

So, in other words, no. He'll never be #1 again.

Ernests Gulbis. Robin Soderling. Tomas Berdych.

Del Potro ~ Tsonga ~ Simon ~ Chardy ~ Verdasco ~ Djokovic ~ Gasquet

The Federror #1 reign is over for good. The king is dead. Praise Odin!!

Re: Will Federer become number 1 again?

I don't think we should count Fed out. He is still obviously a great player, and I believe he will get his #1 back sooner or later. If not this year than at least next year. Nadal will have too many points to defend.

DELPO

Also supporting known chokers Verdasco, Lopez and Monaco

Yes, and Del Potro, Murray and Djokovic will always play Fed and never Nadal. What are you talking about? Outside clay, these 3 will more likely beat Nadal than Fed.

Re: Will Federer become number 1 again?

Delusional J. McEnroe was annoyed because Federer's walkovers weren't counted as Fed's real victories for the tennis history books.
It doesn't matter to some fanatics that Federer plays poorly on some courts. He should dominate everyone...and you're evil if you disagree (with the rehearsed script).

Re: Will Federer become number 1 again?

There was a time when I didn't think Fed would ever win the FO, and I was wrong about that. Even though the victory didn't come against Nadal, it was a win never the less. I also remember kind of writing him off when he lost to Nadal at Wimbledon thinking he was finished. He came back & regained number 1, broke Sampras' record, rah rah rah.

Obviously he can regain the number one ranking if the fire is back in his game. However, if he were to play Nadal in the upcoming Wimbledon final and lose again, this time, I think he's toast.
