Jester first to number 2 and then briefly number 1 and then perhaps Roger back to number 2. He's not getting back to number 1.

Federer back to number 1

Impossible, This year or next

Djok would take No 1, but it's Roger. Fed down to No 3. This is future, I mean next year. you can't disagree with the future

Djoke to number 2. I said Roger would be n3 back after AO2008. DJoke is already ahead of Ego King at the race. It looks like he wins Cinci this year and the situation gets even nastier for the ex-number-1.

no way, with 2 slam finals and two safe TMS finals


fed will take the no back next year at the same time, cannot imagine that nadal will defend all the points he earned and fd can improove in the spring season

Djokovic will end the year at number 2. I think Nadal will clinch year end number 1 when Madrid rolls along.

again:

1 Nadal, Rafael (ESP)............. 1055 0 14
2 Federer, Roger (SUI)............ 686 0 12
3 Djokovic, Novak (SRB) .......... 674 0 12
4 Davydenko, Nikolay (RUS)........386 0 15

novak will be infront of fed after cincinnati and he only needs to perform better than federer until the end of the year.

as for federer ever regaining no.1 , who knows...

Sadly Djokovic will be number 2 very soon. As others pointed out, he's already surpassed Federer in the race, and given their current forms he should do better (possibly much better) than Federer in the rest of the season.

This is actually a good question. I would not be at all surprised to see Fed drop to three before (if) he pulls it back to together again. As for regaining #1, who knows, the next year or two should be extremely interesting in tennis. I think there are some ringers out there right now that could shake up the "fab 3" a little bit and we'll just have to see if they have the nerve to compete at that level day in day out.

Fed will be #1 again. I don't know when, but he will, and Joker won't gain that many points to overtake Fed. I doubt Joker will defend his US Open final. Joker will lose his place after the AO of 2009. He won't defend.

It's like a broken record every year same prediction, "no way can Nadal defend all the points", but .........

He doesn't need to defend all the points. It looks like he could make a huge gap ahead at the end of the year which should keep him safe and there would be some margin for failures.

By the way, I heard Chris Fowler talking about a rumor that Federer is going to retire at the end of the year. Is that even true? or was he just bs'ing like always.

Novak is better positioned to get to #2. I don't see Fed getting back to #1 this year.

So if Federer falls to number 3, can we expect the same moaning about whose half he falls into as we do now about Djokovic? :lol:

I don't want to hear talk like this.

Fed himself has said he wants to continue through the 2012 Olympics. I'll trust what I hear from the horses (or GOATs ;)) mouth.

I think that the main fight at TMC will be for the number 2 spot, between Djokovic and Fed.

Fed's intention is to retire on his turf, aka Wimbledon, at the Olympics in 2012. But if there is a chance that Wimbledon will no longer be his turf by then, he might call it quits. If he gets a guy like Cahill as his coach and gets in Touch with Tony Robbins, he might have an end of career a la Agassi.

Federer will be 31 for those olympics. That seems like a good time to retire.

To me, it would be surprising if Federer retired now I think he's enough of a competitor and has a high enough opinion of his own abilities to want to fight back. I think Federer will be around the top of the game for 2 to 3 more years. It just depends on how he weathers not being number 1.

Djoko will be #2 soon..

Nadal will finish the year as the #1.

Monofed will never get the #1 back.

Next year Monofed could drop to #4..... lose the #3 to Murray.

If Roger fail before QF of USOPEN and no titles for rest of year, Djok easy to get to No 2 by end of year

this is essentially actually asking if Federer will be No.1 first, or no.3 first. I don't know, for me, no.2 is already a shock in itself, i don't think i can handle no.3 at the moment.

and plus i do believe him becoming no.1 again will happen sooner.

At the moment Djoko to #2.

As far as we know, Nadal is not gonna lose on clay, which brings me to the point, he should start playing the clay season earlier....

Somehow I get the impression that we just might have to wait a little longer for Djoko to become #2 than so many people over here seem to expect. :angel:

I would rather he played Rotterdam to improve his Indoor and Fast court game. The number 1 needs to be a threat everywhere.

Even he try hard to lose all these points,but look what an amazing bloc No.4~No.10 are.:o No offense and I like some of them,but don't feel this scenario changes dramatically any time soon. Maybe Murray can be a solid No.4, if not higher, not sure.
