I'm just saying, it isn't like we all forgot about your posts prior to Novak's rise to the top. Now you are hypocritcally turning that same shit onto other players, Federer namely.

So yeah, its quite possible Fed gets to number 1 . If you don't think he has a chance then you're the one who's not right in the head
Nole has a lot to gain at Roland Garros and maybe Olympics not to mention after US open. With that said, I don't think Nole will lose to Federer ever again so it's a moot point. Federer picked up some leftovers that Nole didn't bother with but that only made Nole more motivated.

You can be "happy" however you want but beware that he avoided the best players and that they will come after him soon enough and then I guess you will be "not happy".

Care to explain yourself? What posts prior to Novak's rise to the top, what the hell are you talking about? And how am I hypocrite? do you understand yourself at all?

So using this logic, surely you should not have been celebrating about Djokovic being #1 last year, before he'd sewn up the year end #1 ranking? After all, it could have only been a temporary position. A sensible fan would have waited until he'd sewn up the year-end ranking before seeing it as significant

How will Rafa regain the #2 spot if he reachs the semis? He made the final last year, so unless he wins Rome I don't understand how he will gain more points. If anything, Fed should strenghten his position as #2 as he went out early to Gasquet last year. Is this correct?

Exactly. See? that was easy even for you to grasp.
Getting to number 1 for two, three, four weeks is no big deal. These guys are exchanging positions constantly.

No, Rome points dropped off last week.

That's irrelevant. If you lose before you reach the final or the semi-final, then you don't deserve to win the tournament anyway. The "best players" are those that make it through the draw.

That's why there weren't change at the No.1 more than once in a year since 2003...... Yes, it's no big deal at all.

Just thought I'd add here that the year end no.1 ranking can be just as 'temporary' as a no.1 ranking attained at any other point in the year.

Being number 1 means you're the best player in the last year of play, whether that's a calendar or non-calendar year. There's no guarantee you'll continue to be the no.1 beyond this point, irrespective of whether you attain the ranking at the end of the year, or in the middle of the year.

The #1 ranking has switched four times in the last EIGHT YEARS. That's the least movement it has EVER seen by a considerable margin. You're hilarious.

Yup. A ranking in the middle of the year contains the same tournaments as the ranking at the end of the year. It's no more or less difficult to be number one in either situation.

Federer is approximately 2000 points ahead of Djokovic since US Open and 2600 points ahead of Nadal. He should at least take over the number 2 position quite comfortably pretty soon (Federer will probably miss it temporarily after Rome).

Federer needs to win one of the next three slams to be in contention for the number 1 position, I believe. If he wins Wimbledon, I think Djokovic needs to win the other two slams to hold Federer off, under the condition that Federer reaches at least QF in RG/USO. If Nadal wins one of them, for example RG, Djokovic can easily lose his number 1 after US Open. He will be pretty safe until Wimbledon though.
