Default Re: Federer vs Nadal ranking points (First post always updated)

I think the way Roger sees it is that if he stays fit and on top of his game, noone is going to take away his #1 ranking. Therefore he won't play additional tournaments. Therefore he'll still drop out of Paris if he gets to back-to-back finals in Madrid and Basel. Therefore he might still put in a lacklustre effort in Cincy, if he wins Canada.

And he's right, obviously. If he gets post-RG results like in 2004, 2005 and 2006, he'll stay well ahead of Nadal on the rankings.
