Right. And the same goes for Wozniaki.

So ... it is the same situation.

comparing Djokovic to Woz in any form/way is simply retarded and shows you know nothing about this sport.
Surely you weren't saying this when Novak wasn't number 1 last year and Roger was..

Either way, fact of the matter is, doesn't matter if Novak loses and keeps #1 ranking. He didn't rack up the most points out of everyone in the past 52 weeks for nothing.

Yea, players don't lose a match in the first 6 months all the time

Yea, I know, but only due to a computer technicality, and for a very short time.

It is too slow for Federer to defeat Djokovic, I think he is favorite against Murray but he wont beat Djokovic here.
It's faster than the last USO. Check the stats

rankings simply reflect how consistent you are. again, thank God, guys are doing a great job and God forbid if the ATP ever turns into that WTA mess.
What has my age got to do with this?

I have nothing against the ranking system. I even like it. If you dig up my older posts you will see me defending the system many times when people talk about Player X not deserving to be in the top 10 or Player Y "vulturing" tournaments. I believe Federer was a "legit #1" after Wimbledon, and even if he does not win AO, Novak will be so too.

That said, my point remains the same. I find it funny that the very same group that was attacking the ranking system a few months ago is now defending it, and vice versa. It may be (partially) a different section of the fanbase doing the respective activities. It doesn't matter. I do not recall seeing any Djokovic fans defending the system back when Federer was #1.

Also:

ATP Rankings the week of: February 14, 2011
1. Nadal (slams won in last 52 weeks: 3)
2. Federer (slams won in last 52 weeks: 0)
3. Djokovic (slams won in last 52 weeks: 1)

"Slamless" Fed was ahead of Novak even though Novak was holding a slam.

The rankings are what they are. Whoever holds the No. 1 ranking probably already won a slam at some point in their career, which more than justifies the top ranking. Whether you won one in the past 52 weeks is irrelevant.
You explained it perfectly. That the other clowns listen is a completely different matter.
