Seriously wouldn`t be surprised if #1 is decided at Shanghai TMC~~ thankfully played on a very fast indoor court
Whilst I agree Rafa is definatley improving on HC, I think his game is too physical to dominate the tour the way Roger does.

I absolutley agree on it being tougher to hold the Number 1 spot this year though... regardless of how the rest of the season pans out, IW & Miami are worth lots of points and they're gone now.

Wimbledon I think is the key... if Rafa is to have a chance he HAS to defend the majority of his points there. An early exit and I'll be confident of Fed's chances (providing he plays a good RG and Wimbledon himself!)
