Re: Federer's ranking discussion

He won't get to #1 this week, true, but he's getting closer to it regardless of what happens from the QF on. Not bad for a week many expected he wouldn't play at all.

Damn. That's a pity. Even with the win, Federer will be ranked 3rd coming into Cincy.

He'd have to win and match Nadal's result to get there.

Is that correct Litotes?
I don't think so. Slasher's live rankings show that with this loss Nadal is now at 7555. Roger would get 7545 if he won, so 10 points less.
ATP Open Era & Live Rankings

Cinci points don't drop off until Aug 21. However, Nadal has 90 pts to defend in Cincy while Roger has none. And Nadal has 180 to defend in USO.

Well, not much has changed. Federer still chugging along against Connors for time in the top 5. Still 8 weeks shy for time in the top 4, with No4e being his closest competition.

Hard to believe it, but he's just 3 wins away from consolidating 4th seed for the rest of the year.
Yeah, he's got three chances of securing top-5 the next two days. A win for either Fognini, Sock or himself would do it. I guess chances are he'll have to do it himself.

Live rankings is no guarantee, though. Nadal and/or Nishikori can pass him by doing better in Miami.

So he'll probably play Dubai, one of the IW/Miami and then at most one clay master before RG, will get top-8, not more.

No one really knows his plans and he could change his schedule as he likes so it could fit his aims or goals or what ever. Maybe that is why he has not said anything about clay season. 1st he would like to be fit and healthy for FO and Wimbledon.
We need to see how it is going next months .

Re: Federer's ranking discussion

If he gets two weeks as #9 he'll have at least six weeks in every position in the top-10 and tie Kafelnikov and Nadal in this regard. Only ones with more is Connors (at least 7), Becker (at least 9), Lendl (12), McEnroe (17) and Agassi (33).
