Not for the first time you are misinterpreting my post. No worries - it happens a lot of times.
it's possible in general, but here precisely that was your post :
Rodge already surpassed my biggest ever hopes & dreams for being able to take back the #1 position at Wimbledon, and to surpass Sampras' record in doing so.
I do think it's pretty fair to acknowledge that he wouldn't have managed that without some kind of unfortunate 'help' from a certain other guy, though... and damn me for saying it, Roger's glory makes me as happy as Said Other Guy's misfortune makes me
, for this matter.
In all honesty, I don't give a bloody damn if Djoko (or whoever else) takes it (back) sooner or later - but of course, better later than sooner.
Keep it going, CHAMP!
what I understood, and that's the only thing I mentioned, and in this last post you seem to say it again, is that you consider that Fed wouldn't have managed to get to number 1 back without Nadal's injury and loss to Rosol.
and I wondered what could Nadal have done against Fed getting back to number 1 without any injury ?
the only thing which I could think of which could have changed was that Nadal would have won Wimbledon.
Unless you consider that he would have defeated Federer in Indian Wells ?
Nope, Rafa would have just have managed to live up (close) to the expectations due of his ranking, and Roger would NOT have grabbed back the #1 ranking position.
What would Nadal have done precisely that would have prevented Fed from grabbing back the number 1 ?
A clear fact, and I'm not the one to dismiss it.
for this year, you're the only one I've read saying that.
Usually people consider Djokovic as Fed's opponent for the number 1 this year, I don't understand what Nadal has to do with it now
Well in my eyes yes Nadal has helped Fed to get the number 1 back this year ... by defeating Djokovic in Monte-Carlo, Roma and Roland-Garros.
