Fed first ever to 7000 ranking points...?

If Roger can win the AO, he will be the first player ever with over 7000 ranking points. He would have 7275 points if he wins and he would have 6975 if he loses in the final.

As it is, he cannot be caught in the rankings until the end of the Monte Carlo event. This could only happen if Fed does not even play another tournament until then and Rafa wins every single match or goes 28-0 when he comes back. That would make it 114 straight weeks at least at #1. If he wins the AO final, he can't be caught until the end of Hamburg with him again not playing at all and Rafa going 42-0. That would make it 118 straight weeks at #1.

Thanks a lot for the calculations NYCFan. Seems like this match will have a huge effect on Roger's no. 1 ranking, let's hope he can take it on Sunday.

Was your calculation taking into account the points that Rafa will lose from not playing AO? That's only 30 points .... so probably not a big deal. I think Rafa will not play so many small clay tournaments again as it takes up a lot of travel time etc. He's probably going to pace himself so he doesn't feel worn out at the end of the year.

Your info is good to know, but I don't think it would be the case that Roger would miss Rotterdam, or Indian Wells. He seems to really like the conditions at Indian Wells. As for Miami that could go either way. If Roger wins IW he might not want to play Miami right afterward again. Nadal got an easy draw up to the final at Miami last year. It remains to be seen how he'd do there with more challanging rounds such as perhaps Blake, Monfils, Roddick, Berdych in his path.

Roger Forever !

I think his defending everything is going to be hindered by the fact that others who like clay are getting better and more experienced, such as Gasquet, Berdych, Monfils, and even Baghdatis etc.

Roger Forever !

Yep, the calculation takes into account that Rafa loses 150 points due to not competing at the AO.

The reason I left out ALL of Roger's points is because there is a slight chance that he might not play, but would remain #1 anyway. In other words, I am calculating a guarantee of his #1 position no matter what.

Realistically, Rafa would have to win 3 or 4 TMS events and RG and Fed would have to stink it up for Rafa to have a chance to take over #1.

Thanks for the stats, NYCtennisfan. I'm glad you are back. It's as bad as ever at the GM forum, isn't it?
