He said "I can get back to number #1" at the beginning of the year and I thought in your dream. Shame on me.

He pulled Woziacki since September 2011 (playing more tournaments) and now .......... GOATness more and more confirmed.
Do not ever, EVER insult Roger like that again.

He's on his way to breaking the most number of weeks at #1 record. I never thought this would be possible after last year's horrendous USO SF.

He has only won 1 grasscourt tournament for a reason, you know...
Even if Nole won Newport he cannot keep his no.1 for any longer. He has alot of points to defend at USO.

best thing is that Fed only just made it - 75 points which is miniscule

just shows every single win he got in the last year really counted

Nadal also helped by learning how to slap Nole back into place during the clay swing

Who'd have thought that Fernando Verdasco and Lukas Rosol would play a part in Federer getting back to #1

Congrats to the old man. Hard to say that he doesn't deserve this record given his period of utter dominance a few years ago, and now a return to consistently good results after a couple of patchy seasons in the non-slam events. 8 titles since Basel last year is scary good, albeit only one of those is a slam. He could potentially reach double figures for titles over the 365 day period since Basel given his current form.

It will be interesting to see how Noledal respond now, given as it did appear that they were separating themselves from Federer and the rest of the chasing pack over the past 18 months or so.

The upcoming months in the season will sure be interesting.

thanks to the wimby organizers too. if they hadn't rigged the draw again, federer could have met djokovic in the final and then he'd have stayed no. 1 regardless of the result.

Funny that the Roddick loss at Miami very nearly cost Roger the Sampras record

Federer, you mean the #1 ranked player with 17 major titles that has had more success on clay vs Nadal than anyone? On fast clay? You don't say...

Tsonga, Ferrer, Delpo, Berdy

If Fed can stay ahead of Djokovic after the olympics , he'll most likely reach 300 Weeks at # 1 .

Federer would have done it, but I dont know if Djokovic would have beaten Nadal on blue (that would be a slugfest to remember).

Summer Season Points to Defend: Federer - 990; Djokovic - 3,600; Nadal - 1,390.

So, subtracting out all of the Summer Season points, Federer starts with 10,085; Djokovic - 7,400; and Nadal 7,515.

So, Djokovic would have to gain 2,685 more points than Federer during the Summer Season to be standing as the #1 player following the USO.

So, if Fed wins the Olympics and then SFs each of the remaining Summer tournaments, Djokovic would have to pretty much run the table to be standing as the #1 player following USO.

It's the autumn that gets tricky for Fed though. But I'll try not to think about until then.

(Sorry if it looks like I left Nadal out of the equation, but he'd have to do something he hasn't done in almost two years to be competitive - win a hard-court title.)
