Possibly number 2 for a while. But I'd literally bow down and pray to an effigy of the man if he got back to number 1. Won't do anything else though, I'm not crazy.

Default Re: Will Federer become number 1 again?

I still think no. It's not in his control, it depends also on Nole and Rafa both having dips in form. The fact of the matter is that he's got a lot to defend for the entire hardcourt season, given that he made at least the semis at every tournament he played, and now he has a very narrow window in which to gain points. And the law of Federer over the last year or so has been that being in bad form, or good form, is no guarantee that he can carry it into the big tournaments. So he can have great tournaments like the FO now without having done much in the preceding claycourt season, or he can go out in three against Nole like in the AO despite being on this great run.

But it doesn't matter really, 285 weeks on top is not bad at all

everyday it looks more unlikely

if murray wins wimby, federer might end the year as number 4 considering all he has to defend in the indoor season

not this year. I suppose he can get to #2 of Rafa DOESN'T win Wimby and Fed wins USO. #1 is out of the question this year.

He just missed his golden chance of recent times, had he won Wimbledon he would have been number one... But he does not deserve at this point IMO.

He who wins majors becomes number one. It goes hand in hand. Federer is struggling to win majors so I can't see him getting to number one.

Exactly that is how this could be seen. (at least on the mens ranking system )
