RN: 1810 mandatory points, 1000 points in MC, 500 points in Barcelona = 1810 + 1000 + 500 = 3310 points lost if Nadal does not play any tournament.

Ferrer's total achievable is: 1330 points from non-mandatories (3 x 500s victory, 1 x MC victory = 2500 - 1170), and 3235 from mandatories (4 Masters victories = 4000 - 765). Total possible: 4565 points besides the ones he defends.
Nadal's total achievable is: 965 points from non-mandatories (3 x 500s victory, 1 x MC victory = 2500 - 1545), and 2190 from mandatories (4 Masters victories = 4000 - 1810). Total possible: 3155 points besides the ones he defends.

I think duong should verify my calculations though, so we can be sure if this is correct.
Thanks!
It seems like if Ferrer plays to his seeding in the 4 Masters (4 semi-finals = 675 on top of points he has already) then he might conceivably hold off Nadal until RG regardless of his comeback form.
