Djokovic, Federer, Murray schedules for remainder of season

The race to #1 may well come down to the final week of the season. Since none of the top 3 are playing Davis Cup final, it could come down to the WTF and possibly even the WTF final to determine the year end #1.

Current Race Standings:

Djokovic- 9,910
Federer- 8,905
Murray- 6,730

Purely looking at the numbers, it appears as though it may be only a 2 horse race, but with Murray's surely bursting confidence now, perhaps he could sweep the fall season?

For Djokovic:

Beijing- Could gain 500 points
Shanghai- Could gain 1000 points
Paris- Could gain 1000 points
WTF- Could gain 1500 points

For Federer:

Davis Cup- Could gain 15 points
Shanghai- Could gain 1000 points
Basel- Could gain 500 points, but would have to drop 10-25 Davis Cup points
Paris- Could gain 1000 points
WTF- Could gain 1500 points

For Murray:

Tokyo- Could gain 500 points
Shanghai- Could gain 1000 points
Basel- Could gain 500 points
Paris- Could gain 1000 points
WTF- Could gain 1500 points

Now, bear in mind, all players could at any point take a wildcard into any other event and score some more points, as I'm sure any tournament director would love to have them.

So it is all very much in the air at this point.

Re: Djokovic, Federer, Murray schedules for remainder of season

Don't think Novak can possibly miss Tokyo with Uniqlo being his sponsor

“There’s so many athletes, tennis players around the world,” he continued, trying to put his life into some kind of perspective, “they want to be the best in what they do. They want to succeed. Many of them, they don’t succeed in the end. I’m fortunate to have this opportunity and succeed.”

Re: Djokovic, Federer, Murray schedules for remainder of season

Perhaps so, Taejin, but Djokovic is already signed up for Beijing perhaps he has a previous agreement with the Beijing event.

He can't play both tournaments the same week

He is good, but not that good

Re: Djokovic, Federer, Murray schedules for remainder of season

Tokyo is a sure fire victory for Murray. Pushray turned to Goatray there last year

Shanghai has apparently speeded up at federer request.

On Murray

Murray wins Wimbledon 2016 after Djokovic is blue shelled by Querrey. Thanks Querrey!

Yea, you're right, weird, probably he was already signed up or something.

“There’s so many athletes, tennis players around the world,” he continued, trying to put his life into some kind of perspective, “they want to be the best in what they do. They want to succeed. Many of them, they don’t succeed in the end. I’m fortunate to have this opportunity and succeed.”

Re: Djokovic, Federer, Murray schedules for remainder of season

It's between Federer and Djokovic this year, barre Murray winning everything. Next year should be interesting though. Nadal should be back and Murray will be looking forward to his first full season as a grand slam champion.

Re: Djokovic, Federer, Murray schedules for remainder of season

Murray has entered Basel

Djokovic has entered neither Basel nor Valencia, it's official (see the section "upcoming tournaments" of the forum)

Fed cannot get any points in Davis cup as his zero for Tokyo will stay in his rankings and race

Fed could get DC points, but only if he plays Basel and DC points are better. A first-round loss in Basel is not likely, though.

no as he will keep his zero from Tokyo.

He has two non-countable results at the moment : Davis cup and Doha which anyway will be better than Davis cup.

Re: Djokovic, Federer, Murray schedules for remainder of season

Yeah Murray in Basel, Djokovic playing only Beijing from 500s.

Roger Federer - Martin Klizan - Lukas Lacko - Milos Raonic - Fernando Verdasco

Dustin Brown - Nick Kyrgios - Norbert Gombos - Stanislas Wawrinka - Dominic Thiem

Re: Djokovic, Federer, Murray schedules for remainder of season

Random guessing assuming nobody has a horror indoor season...

Djokovic W Beijing, SF Shanghai, W Paris, SF World Tour Finals (2 RR wins) = 12170 points
Federer SF Shanghai, W Basel, DNP Paris, W World Tour Finals (2 RR wins + semis W + final W) = 11255 points
Murray W Tokyo, W Shanghai, SF Basel, DNP Paris, F World Tour Finals (2 RR wins + semis W) = 9210 points

Will Federer regain the #1 spot and break Sampras's record for most weeks at the top?

Roger // Rafa // Raonic // Söderling // Goffin // Ivo // Wawrinka // Baker // Delpo

Re: Djokovic, Federer, Murray schedules for remainder of season

Djokovic fell to pieces at this time last year. Unless he does that again he will coast to number one.

Federer won't risk an injury to keep it now.

Re: Djokovic, Federer, Murray schedules for remainder of season

Wouldn't surprise me if Murray went the opposite direction and had a bit of a slump. He finally achieved his aim so I can't see him being raring to go win in Tokyo again.

Re: Djokovic, Federer, Murray schedules for remainder of season

Finally an interesting race to year end number one. By this point in the season it has been virtually sewn up each year since 2003.

It's a shame Murray went so poor in Masters 1000s this year (only 1 semi-final or better) or else it could've been REALLY interesting.
