semifinal RG = he ties the record
final RG = he breaks it.

Ooooh this is going to be close...honestly can't really predict what I think Roger will do at RG. The last year or so I've had a very bad feeling about this RG, especially after his clay season up to Madrid, & now I just don't know...I suppose his chances of making the final are ok even if he doesn't play his best seeing as his probable main threats (ignoring Rafa) are either not playing well right now, injured or just not that great on clay (I'm thinking Djokovic, Del Potro, Kolya, Murray there). But you just never know these days, a shock can happen anywhere, I just hope Roger approaches each match in the right way & just gets the job done.

I am confident Roger will reach the semis in Paris at least.

That's right! All given that Nadal wins RG of course. If someone somehow takes Rafa out, then less will do. Not gonna happen though. I predicted Rafa to win everything this clay season way back in march and he hasn't disappointed yet, even if he didn't play his best at Madrid.

The prospect for 286 or more weeks #1 looks a lot better for Federer after Madrid, considering the tournament as a whole. 600 Points in the bag, his game has improved (he is probably second best on clay again) and I can easily see him reach his customary Grand Slam level by next week. On the other hand, Nadal seems to play worse every tournament and is close to being beatable as shown by Gulbis, Almagro and Federer. Nadal is still the favorite for RG though, given his high 'basic' level, but I wouldn't be shocked if he loses again.

I would be shocked. Happy, but shocked.

Lol well it's also a matter of semantics. If I would have to assign probabilites, I think Nadal has a 80% chance to reach the final. Once there, if he meets Federer he has 80% chance to beat him, and against someone else roughly 90% (most players will be nervous in the final). I guess I will be merely 'surprised' if Nadal doesn't win RG. :P

updated thread... and now with 670 points separating them... a RG semis will GUARANTEE the #287 record... i still have bad feeling that roger is not going to make it to RG semis and nadal is going to win it... hence stopping the run...

Hi Wacky, thanks for updating. But you did not include Queens for Nadal? Will he skip it? Otherwise Federer only guarantees 286 weeks by reaching the RG semis.

oh yes thanks for reminding me...! it wasn't included previously because i had assumed he played earlier ATP250 tournaments... but as time progresses and he doesn't play them... i had overlooked it... thanks for pointing out..!

much that i hoped so... but considering the seedings... doubt they can ALL be in nadal's half...

the only person i probably not want to be in roger's half is gulbis... the rest i'm not too concerned...

No way in HELL that Rafa will skipp Queens this year. Don't understand whereever folks even got that notion from.

Roger will have to make the SF at RG at least, it's as clear as that.
