Let's look at this the right way:

Rome

This is the easiest one to predict as we know the brackets. Federer, in this case, is in Djoker's half. It'll probably be another Rafole final, I'll go Rafa here.

Federer 7240
Djokovic 5480
Nadal 5080

Roland Garros

The main threats appear to be Del Potro (although he struggles against the big names now for whatever reason), Isner (if he breaks his funk) and Berdych. I'll still say the big 3 make the semis. Another Rafole final, and probably another Rafa win, depending on if Simon Reed is accurate.

Federer 7960
Nadal 7080
Djokovic 6880

Halle

No real changes here. I think Nadal will bow out early, but Fed will win assuming he plays.

Federer 8210
Nadal 7125
Djokovic 6880

Wimbledon

Now this is where shit gets interesting. I can easily see Berdych, Raonic or Tsonga knocking out a major player here. I'll say Djoker goes out in the QF's, and we'll see another Fedal final. It will be tight. Blood will be shed. Federer narrowly.

Federer 10210
Nadal 8325
Djokovic 7240

Olympics

Another interesting tournament. Grass as a general rule is quicker on the first week than the second week so it's likely that Nadal and Djokovic lose early.

Federer 10960
Nadal 8360
Djokovic 7375

Canada

This depends on how deep the others go into this tournament. Wouldn't surprise me to see Fed skip it, and Nadal I think will lose early-ish here. Djoker, however, if he loses early at the Olympics will win here.

Federer 10960
Nadal 8540
Djokovic 8375

Cinnicatti

A rare quick outdoor court, this should be heaven for Fed, and an early loss for Rafole should be expected.

Federer 11960
Nadal 8630
Djokovic 8555

US Open

This could be very interesting, as all of Isner, Del Potro, Berdych, Tsonga, Raonic and even Cilic could be threats to the top 4. I reckon Nadal loses earlish here, with a Fedole final likely. Who wins that depends on momentum, or court speed.

Federer 13960
Djokovic 9755
Nadal 8990

Tokyo/Beijing

Nadal makes the final in Tokyo but loses, Djokovic wins in Beijing.

Federer 13870
Djokovic 10255
Nadal 9290

Shanghai

Federer skips, Nadal loses early, Djoker makes the final but loses.

Federer 13870
Djokovic 10855
Nadal 9380

While it's somewhat favourable to Fed, it isn't that far fetched.

I said if he somehow manages to win two of the slams, he doesn't have to do anything else to become No.1., and your personal opinion won't change this fact.

Boy, oh, boy Roger's getting closer and the tards are getting nervous. I expect a global problem with tards' internet connections if RF somehow manages to get to #1. MTF will be half empty and 300% more intelligent for a few days.

Nice post. I think you've got too many early losses for Nadal and Djokovic plus I don't see Fed winning more than one slam, but even so that might not cover all of Fed's 3000 point lead, so either way it looks like things will get tight soon!

#1 would be wonderful, but just passing Nadal in the rankings after the clay season would be great, it would be the naturafedal order of things, Nadal ranked below Federer.

Well...For most people the natural ranking of the current top 4 is:
Federer
Nadal
Djokovic
Murray

Doesn't mean shit about the current rankings though, it's just the way those four "grew up" on the tour.

But passing Nadal would feel great, for sure.

Even if Fed passes Nadal it won't last long. It's likely to be a narrow lead and Nadal's more likely to defend his RG title points than Federer is his finalist points... Of course then Nadal has more points to defend at Wimbledon. But I foresee the top positions going back and forth a few times....
