Re: Federer's ranking discussion

After Wawrinka's AO exit Fed has secured that he will remain in the top-3 until after Indian Wells.

He officially ties Connors for weeks at 3. Will pass him Monday.

Next up, total weeks at number 4 and above - will pretty much have a lock on that through to Wimbledon, has his first opportunity to pass Connors at the end of next year. He's about 5 months shy right now, but every point from here on counts.

Federer has secured top-3 for the season for the 12th time and tied Connors for this stat

Still possible with #2, although very unlikely.

In the official ranking both Roger and Andy have now 8000+ points: Rankings | Singles | ATP World Tour | Tennis

Next week, both of them will drop 500 points: Roger for Basel, Andy for Valencia (it was an ATP-500 last year). Andy will have 8250 points, Roger - 7930 points.

Re: Federer's ranking discussion

Yeah, #1 was always a long shot. But given Roger's margin down to #3 and lower, something extraordinary will have to happen for him not to be seeded to the final in every tournament up to and including Wimbledon next year.

Re: Federer's ranking discussion

Unfortunately Roger couldn't manage to get #1 but I can't say that I'm disappointed that he didn't made it.

It would have maybe been different if it would have been alone in his hands to achieve it but this wasn't the case.

He had the advantage this year that he could gain a lot of points at several tournaments but next year it will be a bit different as he has to defend quite some amount of points then.

As long as Roger is healthy and able to play his game the ranking is not that important to me anyway as everything he does in his career is a bonus for me anyway after all he has achieved

And I suppose if he did make it we'd have all these people complaining that you shouldn't be No. 1 if you haven't won a grand slam. Yet in a way the fact that he hasn't would make it even more of an achievement, because it would just show how consistently good he's been this year (and how great to be able to write that after last year!)
At his age, his recovery has been excellent even if slamless. The only consecutive records he is chasing next year are consecutive years in the top 8 and years with a title. He already owns the title streak (years winning at least one title), tied with Lendl, and the total weeks owning at least one title (which he got in 2012 with the Halle win). He is three years behind Connors for the years finishing in the top 8. I don't know whether that's something Federer wants to set as a longer term goal, as it would mark a significant challenge to Connor's remaining longevity records.

The fact that this is even entering the discussion as a possibility I find staggering. He's been very healthy, playing at a high level, so why not.

So that puts next years goals to maintain both at what? 1 title and about 3500 points?

Unless Litotes corrects me I believe these are the only consecutive records he is chasing.

If Novak doesn't play Paris, it really opens up the door for Federer to make a shot.

He did win TMC in 2003. I remember it was too late for him then, was between Roddick and Ferrero. If he'd won the deciding TB in the Toronto SF, though.....or if Nalbandian had won USO...
Yeah. same with the loss to Del Potro in the USO. Where he was going for the CYGS.

One set short.

now he is back at #2.

Roger is like a rubber ball, just bounces back time after time. Ridiculous!

I remember when he was like #8 / #9 earlier in the year, now he is back at #2.
