Not quite. I don't think that there's any realistic way that the Sampras record isn't going down. What I was talking about was the inevitability of Nadal finishing the year as #1 if he plays like in 2005-2008 - not of Nadal overtaking #1 before Wimbledon. Nadal might very well topple Federer right after Wimbledon, but not before.

Proud fan of Olderer, the GOAT.
