Djokovic blew it, this was his big chance to close the gap. He's now got finals in Miami, Monte Carlo and Rome to defend as well as the title in Belgrade.

Yep, it looks like Djoko is out of this race for a while at least. Can't say I'm much bothered about that.

Re: The countdown to most #1 record thread

With Djokovic's loss, Federer is now guaranteed 282 weeks at no. 1

This excellent spreadsheet created and maintained by sdont from Talk Tennis at Tennis Warehouse might be of interest.

No problem, wacky. I have compiled similar tables myself, so do let me know if you need any assistance with yours. You're doing a great job by the way!

I think the way that it is organised in the spreadsheet (effectively tabulated as race points to 14th June) is a useful way of thinking about the number of points his prime contenders must achieve in the upcoming tournaments if Federer is going to be surpassed in the rankings before week #287.

Well that significantly closes the gap.

Ljuba Truba takes down Nadal, and the Soderking destroyed Muezza.

sure... and thanks...!!

i decided to update the thread before IW is over... now that nadal is out... it means that all the players that i've tracked are no longer in the tournament... effectively ending the tournament as far as this thread is concerned... now roger is confirmed #282 weeks at no.1...

Re: The countdown to most #1 record thread

I'm not sure about something: If Fed were to be number 1 at the start of Roland Garros, would the two weeks of Roland Garros count towards his total even if he lost the no.1 ranking after Roland Garros?

Fed is looking good for the record. Win Miami now please and make it all but inevitable!

Yes. Federer will retain his 2000 points from winning Roland Garros last year until 6th June, when it will be replaced by the points he gets from this year's tournament.

Re: The countdown to most #1 record thread

The problem is that for the record he needs to retain his points. Taking RG out of the equation would put him only 1300 points down from clinching number one until RG. I believe that Murray is the only one who can still catch him before RG.

well at this point... i seriously don't see anybody being a threat to the record... not even djokovic or murray...

but we are talking based on what the numbers show... djokovic is the closest to catching roger currently... if u plan to exclude the ATP500s... then djokovic is even closer to catching compared to murray... since he already has more points in the ATP500 department than murray... and in theory only nadal will not overtake before RG... all the others in this thread could still overtake before RG (assuming JMDP and Davy last min could still join miami... if they doesn't then both won't overtake roger before RG)...
