Unfortunately not for very much longer Sean. Nadal will be reclaiming that title, and he's looking every bit an almost sure bet for that.
That's true, but Roger is much better on clay than everyone other than Nadal. So we shall see. It seems strange that he's the King of Clay coming into the season, but that's the truth.
The key for Roger here is to pick up as many points as possible before RG. It helps that none of his big rivals have won a tournament yet this year, and Roddick cleaned up the HC.
Nadal, has the unenviable position of defending everything up until Madrid, and he cannot threaten Roger until RG. Djokovic is still in a more threatening position, and then Murray, depending on how they do on clay. This can quickly change if Nadal successfully defends his titles.
