I'll answer with a question: Who the hell thought, back in July, that Dull would win both masters and the USO?
It's not about what you or anyone else thinks. This was suppose to be about math and securing
the #1 spot means that even if you don't play, you'll be #1 not matter what happens.
Just like now, everyone thinks Nadal will be YE #1, but it's isn't secure until Djokovic has at least a theoretical chance of getting there.
