@``@~Federer locks up 2006 #1 ranking (3rd Year-in-a-row)~!!!


So it`s official Federer now has enough points to guarantee him of finishing 2006 as the World #1 for a 3rd successive year ! Just think if Roddick had won one less match at the YEC in 2003 then Roger would have wrapped up a 4th successive #1 Year .

Everyone spoke about how Sampras`s six-successive #1 years was an amazing accomplishment & yet Federer looks set to equal that or surpass it What do you guys think?? How many years can Federer keep it up...??

Also Rafa Nadal secures #2 for a 2nd successive year !! Will his time of total domination ever come or is he destined to be a bridesmaid for years to come (in terms of not nabbing #1)

Re: @``@~Federer locks up 2006 #1 ranking (3rd Year-in-a-row)~!!!

Two other things worth pointing out><$%%$....
>>> Federer has reached his 10th successive SF at a Grand Slam~ dating back to Wimbleon 2004, which equals Lendl`s record set in the mid 1980`s!!!

If both Federer & Henin reach the finals [chances look good]~ then it will be the 1st time in a calendar year that both a male & female have reached all-4-slam-finals.

Federer`s 06 record stands at: AO = W, FO = F, Wimby = W, USO = SF+...?
Henin`s 06 record stands at: AO = F, FO =W, Wimby = F, USO = SF+...?

If achieved it would be the first time since the Rod Laver grand slam of 1969 that a mens player has reached the final of all 4 grand slams.

The current greatness league of active players in order of achievements to date (a factual comparison rather than fan biased assessment):

Federer 17 GS, 6 Year End Masters, 24 Master Series.
Nadal 14 GS, 27 Master Series, 1 Olympic Gold.
Djokovic 9 GS, 4 Year End Masters, 24 Master Series.

Practically speaking, Federer has locked up number one this year, but theoretically Nadal could still catch him after the TMC. He actually needs to win the US Open to be mathematically sure of the top spot.

The last 3 events indicate that he has not progressed. Maybe just an aberation.

Federer 17 GS, 6 Year End Masters, 24 Master Series.
Nadal 14 GS, 27 Master Series, 1 Olympic Gold.

From what I`ve read & calculated Federer has mathematically locked up #1 this year ! Rafa losing yesterday & Fed beating Blake today confirmed it I believe

I guess our calculations differ then. I expect Bob Larson will think he's locked it up, but he often gets it wrong. Anyway, to all intents and purposes, it's a closed case - Roger is almost guaranteed number one until the AO.

Great achivement by Roger....but it doesn't mean that he will continue to dominate for at least the next 3 years. Whilst he has a sensible schedule, all it takes is for a nasty injury to come around and that streak is snapped. Hopefully he will remain fit and healthy

Nadal could feasibly make #1...he has nothing to defend until February so there is some ground to be made up there...but he has to improve on US hardcourts to make up the remaining gap

Henin`s 06 record stands at: AO = F, FO =W, Wimby = F, USO = SF+...?
Going by that stat, if both Fed and Henin makes the final, then we'd know after the womens final whether Fed will win or not: Apparently Henin and Federer cannot both win.

Furthermore, it would appear that they take turns to be the winner, which means that Henin will win the US Open and Federer will lose the final.
