Seriously? You would have Ferrer, Berdych and Tsonga win everything in sight the rest of the season just to get Nadal down to #6?

Me, I wouldn't mind Nadal keeping his #3. He has earned it, after all, unless Murray wins US Open - and I have a better candidate for that title....

Well, I said RN is super unlikely to fall down to #4 because I don't see Murray overtaking him.

But it would matter if he didn't. If he can't overtake an injured Nadal in the rankings, how is he going to do it when Nadal comes back??

Djokovic | Tipsarevic | Querrey

nadal going to number 5 would make one of the greatest AO draws in history

God is Love. To know Love is to know God. So ask yourself if you hold any hate for another in your heart how can you have room for Love, room for God

Not happening. Unless Ferrer goes on a tear and wins a lot in the few tournaments that are ahead.

Unless he drops to #5 (which he won't), does it really matter?

Re: Where will Nadal be ranked at the end of 2012?

How do you think Rafa will play when he will be back? Will he need a couple of/3-4 tourneys in order to find form or the comeback will be a successfull one right-away?

Q. Do you think you would have been able to play as well as you played today, or you think you would have pulled out from the game if it wasn't the Masters Cup final?

ROGER FEDERER: No, Roger Federer doesn't pull out. Otherwise he doesn't walk on court (smiling).


After losing to Nalbandian in 2005 TMC final...
