Default Our boy In with a Spectacular Chance in Melbourne

Just realised that since Nadal is now out of the Australian, Nole will automatically take Number 2 spot in the World Rankings no matter what happens . This set me thinking - If Federer doesn't get to the semis and then Nole gets to the finals and WINS, then this puts him at the number ONE spot in the rankings. I'm not 100% sure (not being a statistician !) but I think I'm right in this...

I believe Nole can do it if he stays calm and retains his current form... GO NOLE , GO,,,, all your fans are 100 percent behind you and you really deserve this chance.

So is Nole #2 now? Not quite yet.

He has already matched last year's result so he won't lose any points. Rafa did just lose 1640 pts. However, Murray has already gained 540 points as he went out in the 4th Round last year. I guess Nole has to win the next match against Tsonga to completely secure the #2 spot as Murray could still take it if he wins the whole thing.

Anyway, Nole is now ranked ahead of Rafa for the first time in his career. That is EXTREMELY significant!!

"As a result of the loss, Nadal, the defending Australian Open champion, will lose his No. 2 ranking."

Just keep winning, Nole!

Yes, I have read the posts of the Ranking Gods in the General Discussion.

Kolya has to beat Fed, and Nole has to win it all to get #1. To get #2, as Nolby have said, Nole needs to win the match against Tsonga, otherwise the fate of his #2-ship lies in the hands of Andy Murray.

I remember those other times. You could also look at it this way. In every single one of those instances it was about passing Rafa or Fed for #2. He never passed either of them. He has already passed Rafa, so one of the jinxes is already over.

The other part is that Nole may already have the #2 regardless. Murray is not guaranteed to win the Australian Open. This situation is completely different.

Yeah, I hope Nole doesn't pay attention to rankings but tries to perform his best tennis tonight. And I believe he will do because he really wants to do well in grand slams and knows how important it is for him.

I hate that we have to wait for someone (Murray) to lose to get Nole into the #2 spot.

Well, if my calculations are right, he'll get no.2 if Murray doesn't defend Rotterdam (he's not on the entry list). So, either Murray loses in the final and Nole gets it, or we'll have to wait until Feb 15th. Either way, YOU CAN'T ESCAPE IT NOLE

Your calculations are right. Nole will be #2 whether he likes it or not!!!

Plus, he will have a chance to add more points to his lead at Rotterdam. Since a sour stomach is obviously not going to last, things look much better than they appeared.

Maybe Murray will upset all the calculations by accepting a WIld Card into Rotterdam? After all - he is defending Champion, and they'll want a big name there to replace Nadal

I don't think so. Yes, he's crazy but, he's scheduled to play Marseille and Dubai... Even he's not that crazy. Right?

^ I think the safest thing is that Murray doesn't win AO? Agreed?
