Has Roger now secured the No. 1 ranking for 2005?

I think think that he may have done so. If not, he just needs to play a few more rounds of a tournament and then secure it.

Go Federer, Nadal!!!

Even if he hasn't its not like anyone is going to challenge him.

I guess Roddick must be the greatest player to ever play the game.

Yes, if he doesn't play the rest of the year, and Nadal wins the next two masters and the cup, he still wins the champions race by 7 points, securing the year-end #1. Nadal has his optionals full, so he can't gain points that way.

I think that the only scenario where he can be passed is if he doesn't win another match this year, and Nadal wins Vienna, Basel, Madrid and Paris, and is undefeated in the Masters Cup.

(Vienna and Basel have higher points available than 2 of his optional tournament wins).

i think it's still close. i haven't done the math, but there are still 4-5 major tourneys before year's end. but considering roger always goes deep in every tournament, he's bound to secure the top spot already.

Domino's post is correct I think, although the commentators were saying it is already tied up for Roge to end year #1

Nadal has extremely theoretical chance in that Federer doesn't win a match and Nadal wins one big optional event, both remaining MS tournaments and YEC without dropping a match.

I consider odds for that happening somewhat unlikely.

Yep.. 1,000,000-1 chance of Nadal finishing NO1...
Roger even still has 1 optionel left this year, so he can tie up the No1 for sure by winning a couple of matches in Bangkok or Basel..
