Yeah, but I still thought Pete was the better player of the two, and his back injury probably cost him the year end #1 and a real shot at another US Open crown.
So maybe it's not who ends #1, but who is the better player. At this point, I think the results point to Fed being the better player. He's had better results in three of the four GS, and his titles have come in bigger events against better opposition. Who knows what's going to happen until the YEC. But regardless of who ends #1, Fed is in my mind the better player and one match at the YEC is not going to really change that.
