Not quite yet, but very, very close.
As it stands, Feds leads Nadal by 204 points. If he wins the tourny, he leads by 234 points.
Fed needs to lead by more than 150 points going into the TMC to secure the #1 title.
At this point, If Feds didn't play Basel and Nadal won Bercy, Fed would be up 134 points going into the TMC (if he wins Madrid) meaning that Nadal would have to go 5-0 and Federer would have to go 0-3 for Nadal to reach #1.
If Feds wins Madrid and reaches the SF's of Basel (22 race points), he clinches #1.
If Feds loses the final tommorrow, but wins BAsel, he secures #1.
