I expect Roger to drop to No. 8 after Shanghai, No. 10 after Basel and No. 15 after Paris, as the WTF points will also come off at that time.
I hope that he will be back in full form next year and quickly make up for the lost ground!
He's not defending anything in Shanghai after R1 loss last year so he'll only drop after it if one extra player advances past his total. Which is of course possible, Monfils the most likely candidate. But no certainty he improves on last year.
One thing I'll be looking for is whether he gets a week as #16 and or #17 somewhere down the line, the only positions in the top-25 he hasn't currently had before.
