but if he keeps number 2 for Madrid, Roma or Roland-Garros, he would at least be sure to avoid Djokovic in semis even if Nadal could always be there
... and I know you would like Roger to bring his weeks in the top-2 as long as possible (atm 413 weeks guaranteed until the end of Indian Wells, it's still possible to argue between him and Lendl at this number)
