Can Roger score 1000 points?

Last year, before Halle, Roger had got 278 championship points according to my calculations, not counting Rotterdam because it was out of his best 5 non-countable tournaments.

This year, before Halle, Roger has got 501 points. That is a 223 difference. If he walks the exact same path as he did last year, then we can add this 223 onto his 875, which would be 1098.

Do you think Roger can get over 1000 this year? Or would it be too tough?

Re: Can Roger score 1000 points?

Sure why not, he's got the potential. He's got that amount of points if you divide entry system points by 5, which means if he does as well as last year after RG he'll keep his current entry system points at the end of year, thus more than 1000 points in champion race.

BTW, LCeh, is your avatar a picture of Roger & Hingis? So lovely!

Re: Can Roger score 1000 points?

Yup. =)

Well, Roger won 1 GS, 2 TMS and one smaller tournament to get to where he is now, he can certainly win Wimbledon, and winning 2 TMS is certainly possible. There is also the TMC, which if he can win all his matches, he would get 50 more points than a TMS. I certainly hope he can passed the 1k mark...

Has anyone else done it before?

no one has held 2 slams in a calendar year since the champions race came into place amazingly so I doubt anyone reached 1000 points, would be a great achievement but why not go for the 1500

Yes, make that your goal Roger, 1500!

I think we will get the answer within 3 weeks. After Wimbledon, we can almost be sure if Roger can get 1000 or not... I hope he can...

He could win the US Open -- that takes him to 946. Then a few additional great performances (including in Gstaad next week --isn't he playing there?) will do 1000 no question

It won't be such a big problem! Go for it Rogi!!!

Maybe Sampras took over from me and now Federer will take over from Sampras - Edberg

Gstaad adds 35 points now- a few more under the belt.

Re: Can Roger score 1000 points?

Yep, 781 now, and 302 more than his nearest rival Coria.

Last year, he had 785 AFTER the round robin stage of the Tennis Masters Cup.
