I believe Djokovic on hard is a superior mover to Federer because of the sliding and stretching he does there. On clay Federer is also good at sliding and Djokovic superiority is at least less big.

And maybe in a lesser way. On clay topspin on the forehand helps your game and Federer hits with more topspin than Djokovic.

Based on the new-released IW draw, I doubt Fed can defend his point last year, let alone dream about the No2 ranking.

Re: Will Federer get to 2nd place in the rankings before RG?

better hope lack of match practice, fognini, john mcenroe and the crowd distract djoker again.
federer's one-dimensional game and lack of anticipation are the same.

Re: Will Federer get to 2nd place in the rankings before RG?

If Fed wants to get to #2 mid year he better beat Rafa today

Best case scenario for Fed: he and Rafa are top 2 again

Second best case: Nojoke and Murray are top 2...

Seems like Fed won't have even a bit of luck in his quest for #2 and consequently #1. To be honest, it is kind of fair and appropriate that if you want to pass the #2 (and eventually the #1), you beat them in tournaments where you compete together. Otherwise you're just another Wozniacki.

Rafa might not be able to defend even half of his HC points, he might also be tired and not play 4 tournaments on clay before RG.

Lets say Rafa:

Gets to SF in Indian Wells and QF in Miami, loses in F in MC and Madrid and wins Barcelona, he fails to defend 1660 points in that case.

Federer catches then up as long as he defends his points.

Rubbish. Wozniaki could beat all of the top 5 girls in BO3, just couldnt do it in the slams.
Anyway, Federer is not going to get to number 1 without a slam so its a completely different scenario

Novak Djokovic: 13310 -----> 12670
Rafael Nadal 10415-----> 10175 If he loses today
Roger Federer: 8710------> 9350 If he wins the tournament


There would be a difference of 825 points, right??

Looks like my prediction might not be so far fetched after all.

Je n'enlève rien à ce que Novak a fait mais je crois qu'il faut encore faire davantage. Rafa a neuf Grands Chelems, moi seize, lui deux.
