Estoril awards 120 and 175 points, respectively, to the runner-up and winner. For MC, Roger's defending 350 points.

Thus, if my reckoning is correct --

1) If he gets 120 at Estoril, he has to earn at least 230 points so as not to be in deficit. A SF finish (225) at MC would set him back by 5, which means he has to gun for no less than a final spot again to gain some breathing room.

2) A win in Estoril would be the better scenario and can afford him a SF finish (225) at MC while gaining him some points, too.

No, it's been degraded this year. It's 175 and 120 for the runner-up.

Could be a worse draw then Nalbandian and Djokovic on clay. It would be a hard draw on say hardcourts, but this is clay!

Yep but anyway, these are tough match up for Roger... Let's see how it goes, but I do not expect djoko to do very well at MC... Dunno, just a feeling ... Nalbi used to do well on clay and especially when he comes to play roger, he's the greatest threat imho!

that makes sense... so I guess I won't see him playing for his 2nd round! Hope no bad surprise when I'll check the results

Semifinal against Djokovic will also be tough, but he could also go out to the likes of Murray or Moya. Not likely though. Generally, I still like Rogers chances against Djokovic on clay, IF he is fit and confident. And that's the big question, really.

Nadal will win the title anyway, but I'd be very happy with a final appearance from Roger. Even a semifinal will be OK. Anything less will be disappointing.

Should be an exciting tournament!
I agree with this, plus, no draw is good draw for Roger these days...

damn, 175? it mean he will only win 35 points at the race instead of 40
davy wins 24

now Roger is #4 on the race. Damn he has to do well at MC this year again, I hope goes at least to final, so he can gather his points
