This is the easiest one to predict as we know the brackets. Federer, in this case, is in Djoker's half. It'll probably be another Rafole final, I'll go Rafa here.

Federer 7240
Djokovic 5480
Nadal 5080

Roland Garros

The main threats appear to be Del Potro (although he struggles against the big names now for whatever reason), Isner (if he breaks his funk) and Berdych. I'll still say the big 3 make the semis. Another Rafole final, and probably another Rafa win, depending on if Simon Reed is accurate.

Federer 7960
Nadal 7080
Djokovic 6880

Halle

No real changes here. I think Nadal will bow out early, but Fed will win assuming he plays.

Federer 8210
Nadal 7125
Djokovic 6880

Wimbledon

Now this is where shit gets interesting. I can easily see Berdych, Raonic or Tsonga knocking out a major player here. I'll say Djoker goes out in the QF's, and we'll see another Fedal final. It will be tight. Blood will be shed. Federer narrowly.

Federer 10210
Nadal 8325
Djokovic 7240

Olympics

Another interesting tournament. Grass as a general rule is quicker on the first week than the second week so it's likely that Nadal and Djokovic lose early.

Federer 10960
Nadal 8360
Djokovic 7375

Canada

This depends on how deep the others go into this tournament. Wouldn't surprise me to see Fed skip it, and Nadal I think will lose early-ish here. Djoker, however, if he loses early at the Olympics will win here.

Federer 10960
Nadal 8540
Djokovic 8375

Cinnicatti

A rare quick outdoor court, this should be heaven for Fed, and an early loss for Rafole should be expected.

Federer 11960
Nadal 8630
Djokovic 8555

US Open

This could be very interesting, as all of Isner, Del Potro, Berdych, Tsonga, Raonic and even Cilic could be threats to the top 4. I reckon Nadal loses earlish here, with a Fedole final likely. Who wins that depends on momentum, or court speed.

Federer 13960
Djokovic 9755
Nadal 8990

Tokyo/Beijing

Nadal makes the final in Tokyo but loses, Djokovic wins in Beijing.

Federer 13870
Djokovic 10255
Nadal 9290

Shanghai

Federer skips, Nadal loses early, Djoker makes the final but loses.

Federer 13870
Djokovic 10855
Nadal 9380

While it's somewhat favourable to Fed, it isn't that far fetched.
So far, not that bad. Halle was a bit of a failure, but I got RG and Rome right and I look like getting the Wimby winner right.

RIP Henry Chinaski. A true MTF legend

This is one of many posts in this thread that show a lack of understanding of some players' desire and ability. To say that he had no shot at #1 again while he was still #3 was simply wrong. Federer has a great shot at it, and I suspect that Djokovic and Nadal will continue to fight over it for the next few years with the ranking exchanging hands more than a few times with perhaps Murray making a charge if he can win Sunday and really begin to play his game.

Even though it seemed highly unlikely after last year's USO, you can never count out someone as great as Federer, just the way you won't be able to count out Djokovic and Nadal once they start to age and decline.

Thank god he did it while winning a slam, does it not feel alot better than him becoming nr1 when Djokovic loses in QF in Cincinatti?

I always knew he would win more slams and it is far from over guys. He will end the year as nr1 now.

All things are subject to interpretation whichever interpretation prevails at a given time is a function of power and not truth.

Considering the points Novak has to defend, he very likely will keep it. With Rafa's knees, this old man will be #1 at the end of the year. Great for tennis.
