Question What does Lleyton have to do to remain #1?

As in, how many matches does he need to win to ENSURE he keeps the #1 ranking?

If Agassi wins, but Lleyton makes it to the final, Lleyton still gets #1

Here is the deal

Lleyton is now 108 points ahead of Agassi. Agassi lost today, but if he wins his other 2 round robin matches he gets 40 points. That still leaves 68 points to catch Lleyton. I think winning the SF is worth 40 points, and winning the final is worth 50 points (kinda odd that the final is only worth 10 more points).

Anyway, as you said, Lleyton making the final would ensure him staying #1. However - Agassi HAS to win the whole thing to pass Lleyton, regardless of what Lleyton does. Lleyton just needs to win 2 more matches PERIOD to stay at #1...

Agassi lost his first 2 matches and pulled out of the tournament injured, so Lleyton already has #1
