How the hell will Ferrer manage to get 2K points in the rest of this year?
Unlikely, Ferrer's still over 2000 points back.
Actually, there are 1425 points now. Nadal has 590 points to defend, so if he can't participate this season, Ferrer needs to make 835 points more than the points he has to defend (1540). Having said that, it would mean a bunch of very tough
A. Winning Paris, Final in either Tokyo or Valencia, Semifinal in the other, Final in Shanghai, 400 points in the WTF.
B. Final in Paris, Winning Shanghai, Final in either Tokyo or Valencia, Semifinal in the other, 400 points in the WTF
C. Winning Valencia and Tokyo, SF in Paris, F in Shanghai, 600 points in WTF
D. Win WTF, SF in Valencia, Tokyo, Shanghai, QF in Paris.
And many many more...
Ferrer needs to make 2375 + 1
points in this part of the season to pass Nadal.
