I do think Nadal will be able to defend last year's without any problems. Fact is though, that he must do better if Ferrer does better. Ferrer is also 510 points ahead of Nadal in the race. But that is due to pre-AO, DC and AO. At post-AO, Nadal gained 900, while Ferrer only 550.

Re: The Live ATP Rankings Thread

Now that we started talking about Indian Wells scenarios, Murray has a good shot at the number 2 spot because Federer got eliminated a little faster. All he has to do is beat Delpo and Nole, of course.

Re: The Live ATP Rankings Thread

Will Federer get a zero-pointer if he skips Miami? Because I read something about a rule for > 31 years and 600 matches that allows skip mandatory tournaments without giving a reason, but don't know if this also applies for the rankings

He will. The rule applies only in terms of fines a player is charged by skipping mandatories.

Re: The Live ATP Rankings Thread

To get to number 2 after Indian Wells, Murray needs to reach the final in Indian Wells.

To keep or get the number 2 after Miami, Murray needs either :
- to win Miami
- to win Indian Wells and reach QF in Miami
- to play the final in both Indian Wells and Miami

Here's the situation for the rankings before Roland-Garros at the moment as some mentioned it :

Code:
Djokovic	10720
Murray	7390
Federer	7310
Ferrer	5780
Del Potro	3800
Berdych	3800
Nadal	3350
Tsonga	3210
Nadal is still 2430 points behind Ferrer, and well Nadal can win a lot before Roland-Garros but Ferrer is also allowed to get points during clay season

So Murray will have to reach the final of Indian wells, after Indian wells is over?

If Murray reaches Indian Wells final, he will get to number 2 next monday.

But if he hasn't won Indian Wells, and if he doesn't reach Miami final, he will lose it back after Miami.

Now it's easier : for Murray to get the number 2 after Miami he needs to win Miami, that's all.

Re: The Live ATP Rankings Thread

But now we can talk about Delpo winning IW and reaching the number 2 spot in the race.

Re: The Live ATP Rankings Thread

Together with that number 2 in the Race, Nadal can also take the number 4 back from Ferrer in the Rankings if he wins Indian Wells.

But even if he did so, he would then have 1790 points more to take from Ferrer until Roma to get the number-4 seed in Roland-Garros. And he would have to do it not being seeded 1 or 2, which means with potentially facing Djokovic before the final.
