If Fed doesn't play Shanghai or doesn't reach QFs there, Djokovic could take the number 1 after Shanghai only if he won both Beijing and Shanghai.

Yes, for the year-end, there are now 1000 points now in favour of Djokovic ahead of Federer in the Race, and Federer is 2160 points ahead of Murray.

It's clearly opened for Federer even though Djokovic is ahead at the moment.
Thanks duong, so 301 is quite likely. That's a nice milestone in case the YE#1 escapes him. Also, I assume Federer has a good chance to hold #1 directly after the Australian Open.

at the moment, he's 185 points ahead of Djokovic for that target but the Aus open is better suited for Djokovic, then well it's not that easy.

Besides, after Melbourne, Fed will also lose many points (Rotterdam-Dubai-Indian wells)

by the way, as Djokovic hasn't entered Basel or Valencia (tehn he will probably play Bercy), it would be 302 weeks, until the end of Bercy

Federer now has the second best run of any player over 30 for year end number one. In 1982 Jimmy Connors lasted until November. If his run lasts at least until October 20th of this year, that leaves him just a month shy of the record and 2 months of year end number one.

Also, thank you Murray for not choking at 3*-2 in the final set after giving one break back.

Rafa comes across as a very nice person!

This was a fun read:
4:33PM EDT October 16. 2012 - Roger Federer is atop the ATP rankings for the 300th week in his career. We try to put that into context.

• Federer's 300 weeks means he's been No. 1 for nearly six years. His top ranking could be in kindergarten now, doubtlessly going up to the teacher and subtly alluding to how good its handwriting is compared to Andy Murray's.

• The next highest active total is Rafael Nadal at 102 weeks.

• In fact, the 300 are more than every other active player combined (300 to 235). Federer's record streak of consecutive weeks at No. 1 (237, snapped by Nadal in 2008) is also higher than that total.

• The only country with more player weeks at No. 1 than Federer's 300 is the United States (six players, 896 weeks).

• Federer first became No. 1 on Feb. 2, 2004. Ronald Reagan, Ray Charles and Marlon Brando were still alive.

• One record Federer doesn't have: He "only" has five year-end No. 1 rankings. Pete Sampras has one more. Federer could tie that mark if he holds off Novak Djokovic over the next three weeks.

• Every Star Wars movie has been in theaters for a combined 233 weeks. And those things are always in theaters.

• Metallica's Black album was on the Soundscan charts for a record 284 weeks.

• Federer still has 77 fewer weeks at No. 1 than Steffi Graf. (And, for that matter, 32 weeks fewer than Martina Navratilova.)

Oh, so true! I'm sitting here snorting helplessly with laughter at that - good job I wasn't taking a sip of my drink at the time!
