Rafa has caught up to Nole a lot faster than a few people predicted.

I think it is inevitable that Nadal will take a big lead into Wimbledon. For me I think that the grass court event may be the most important for Nadal in terms of aiming for the #1 spot. Reason for this is that it seems highly likely that he will have very solid but not outstanding results at the summer HC AMS events, at the USO and probably the same again indoors. I am not saying he may not find his way to win a title but overall I think we can say he will probably be getting deep but losing these ones. At Wimbledon though I really think there is a far greater level of variance for him and for Djokovic. I could easily see either of them being in the final but it's not a stretch either to see one of them out by the 4th round. Will be an interesting one.

1/2 is enough to tie.
Final or win and Nadal becomes first.

Standings updated after yesterday's action.

Commented on a couple of the more interesting Race battles going on outside the top 25 (see post #3). It shouldn't surprise you as to which two nations, in particular, this would involve.

Today's update sees Djokovic's reign as Race #1 come to an end!
The battle for the 8 Shanghai places starts to take shape...
Bolelli extends his lead in the Italian race.

Nadal having a lead at this point is inevitable. Not worried about that - he will get reeled in during grass and hard season. What I want to see now is Roger overtaking Nole during clay season. Ought to be possible...

i think if nadal eased on grass and focused on hardcourts he'd do much better in the mid-summer HC season

he puts so much efford in playing well on grass that he runs out of gas (or better said.. runs out of mental strengh) to do great on HC..dont take me wrong, he does play well..but not like on clay-grass season if you get what i mean

Okay, everything updated for Rome, tomorrow. 0 points added to the database for Berdych, Youzhny, Baghdatis, Hewitt, Kohlschreiber and Haas. Particularly damaging for Berdych, Baghdatis and Hewitt, who have each missed at least 2 TMS (and are expected to miss Hamburg as well) and didn't score well in the one(s) they attempted.

A few interesting battles:

- Federer needs to start closing down on Djokovic.
- Tsonga is reaching the end of his stay in the elite top 8, unless he can do something.
- As happened at the end of last season, a gap is beginning to open up behind Murray...several players are absent this week, while most others in the near vicinity will do well to win more than 2 matches, given some of their respective draws.

Okay, we're updated to the QF stage. One name you'll notice missing from the top 25 - Mr. Robredo, at #26 with 85 points. Therefore, if he beats Roddick, he'll be in there.

One thing I will mention...you'll notice there are a number of ties for points. I haven't tied the positions, instead offering the higher position(s) to the player who scores better in the Slams. If there is a tie there, it falls to Masters. Pretty sure this is the way the ATP would operate, unless someone would care to correct me.

Yeah, for a different reason. I mean, there would appear to be two battles going on...one for the American #1 position (Roddick and Blake) and one for a successor to Roddick and Blake. Querrey looks to be a strong candidate...has stepped his game up this year. Although I still wonder where some of these results are coming from when I think back to some of his "tennis" in Delray Beach.
