Re: Will Federer Ever Get the #1 Ranking Back?
Number 1 is Nadal's for as long as he's fit - that's been the case for two years. Simple arithmethic:
4600-5000 points on clay
wimbledon for another 1200-2000
slow hard (Aus, IW, Miami) maybe another 2000 points average
That's over 8k baseline, then add in points from canada/cinci/us open/250s/500s/etc/etc. Fed would probably need to hold 3 slams at once to overtake him.
The real question for me is if Fed can stay in the top4, to keep the easy draws rolling in, and maybe allow him to get up to 20 slams.
