I believe so. Wow, that will certainly be nice for him to achieve that at such a young age. While I hope Roger can break his record for having the longest consecutive weeks as #1, and this will create exciting rivalry.

Re: Nadal can still become #1 in the world if he can win Master Cup and Australian Open.

I think that Federer is guaranteed to break Jimmy Connor's consecutive week record. For the me the earliest that Nadal will be able to claim top spot is after Miami.

Stastically he can, realistically it's looking unlikely.

It will certainly make a cinderella story wouldnt it. But stranger things have happened to #1 ranking, so we will see how that plays out.

Yeah, but how badly would Federer have to lose in these events?

Fan of: Federer Safin Haas Nadal Santoro Agassi Tursunov's blog

Mathematically, yes, but more than just these two events would have to happen. If Federer is the runner-up in these two events, he would still have a big lead on Nadal. And this doesn't even consider the MS events in Paris and Madrid.

Re: Nadal can still become #1 in the world if he can win Master Cup and Australian Open.

Might take another half a year or a year for Nadal to get the number1 ranking since when Federer doesn't win he tends to still make the Final which doesn't lose him too many points. I can see Nadal beating Federer at all the slams next year but Federer would still reach the final so Nadal wouldn't get that much more than Federer. Nadal should focus on winning Wimbledon. Beating Federer at Wimbledon will really secure Nadal's ownership of Federer regardless of ranking.

He might do it but the way his playing not too sure about that and seeing he's recent results you still have the balls to say he will beat fed in the slams nice joke.

For that to happen, Nadal would have to pray to the gods for a joke draw again! I can guarantee you that Nadal will not make the Wimbledon final next year (you heard it hear 1st)!!!

Nadal is very close to matching Federer on grass. Watch the Wimbledon Final again and you will see how close he was. If he can do that to Federer I doubt anyone else will trouble him on grass. He wins on grass the way Hewitt does, only better.

Nadal has also beaten Roger on hardcourts 2 out of 3 times, yet he hasn't reached a final during this hardcourt season.

Re: Nadal can still become #1 in the world if he can win Master Cup and Australian Open.

Nadal has too much trouble with actually getting to the final on most surfaces to consider him likely to overtake it any time soon, in my opinion. Even if he does start doing it, Roger's not going to lose every match between the two of them. He might even lose the Rafa complex soon which would make this discussion useless.

is that a joke or what?
You forget that Federer won the first set 6-0 and was 5-1 in the 4th set before finishing it 6-3. The set Nadal won he played an amazing and almost unrepeatable set with 20 winners to just 3 unforced errors and still got the set in a tiebreak, you go figure.
Federer on his part did not exactly played outstanding tennis, he was a little above on the winners/errors category and played well enough to take his nemesis out.

And no Nadal does not (has not won yet) win anything important on grass to compare him to Hewit. Hewit has a fair share of titles on grass (like 4) and include a Wimbledon title to that. Nadal is not close to Hewit on grass... just yet..

A service notice for Pete..

Does he really believes this is the same Federer of then?

Is this a payback for the red dot I gave u when you try to make mean comments on Nadal on another thread? Too funny.

I think it's only matter of months before Nadal does so.
