I think Federer will surpass the record...I'm not really sure how to suppress a record, though.

nalbandy defends 750 points, ljubo and roddick 450 so its very much possible with 9000 points only ( basel 250+paris500+masters250 ) anyway temporarily he has just 700 entry points more than 2nd+3rd or 150 race points more than clowns 2 and 3 combined.

I think it will take a lot of miracles and bizarre happenings for him not to pass the mark.
