Djokovic has 11120 points at the moment. You added his DC points twice. Rafa is 260 points behind Djokovic now.
If Djokovic wins Beijing Rafa needs final there. If Djokovic looses earlier, then it's a lot of calculation.

Re: If Djokovic stays the No. 1 until October, he will overtake Nadal...

I want to ask how was this a sure thing (like everyone said) back in July? I mean Djokovic made the USO final and Canada final + Cincy and DC points and he'll barely catch Nadal for 1 (2? 3?) weeks? If he lost in R2 of USO, for example, he would be #2 right now. Again, who the hell was this a done deal in July?

Well! The OP believes that Nadal is a transitional champion between Fed and Djokovic. So it's not beyond belief that s/he made this thread that early to sort of support his/her agenda.

I'll answer with a question: Who the hell thought, back in July, that Dull would win both masters and the USO?

He was undefeated on hardcourt at that time.

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.

Clown thread.

People weren't saying it was mathematically secured, but that it was highly, highly likely. Nadal sweeping the NA HC season (after what happened at Wimbledon) and Nole failing to make finals at both Masters was a massively unlikely proposition. And regardless, he still will overtake him for one week.

People act like Nole did everything he could to reach #1.
He certainly didn't need to lose many semis to lose #1.
All he had to do was skip 2011 events & tank matches in Davis Cup, Indian Wells, Montreal, Wimbledon, Cincinnati, French Open & US Open.

He just required 2 massive chokes at French Open & US Open
to plummet his ranking points.

He only played 1 tournament.

Being 1 for 1 is not an indicating of going 4/4

Novak completed 100 weeks at # 1 when the ranking were released today. Good going.
It is NOT consecutive weeks though .
Congrats Novak..

Fan of the Game . Love to play and watch it .
Like all players . I have my favorites but I never insult others or their fan base
