It's pretty interesting that Federer got a golden opportunity to retake #1 after Wimbledon or later. His strong season finish winning Basel, Paris and WTF is a sweet 3000 points in total. Meanwhile Nadal and Djokovic didn't gain much at all in that stretch and will now defend a ton of points the coming months.

Federer won't defend nearly as much until RG where he ofc defends the final spot. But as he crashed out in QF in Wimby that is where he should be able to overtake Djokovic/Nadal


It's definitely gonna be tricky for Djokovic to hold on to #1 because he ended the year so poorly. Had he only gained 500 more points or so I'd give him a bigger chance. Now he might lose it after Wimbledon/USO

Considering Federer has almost no chance of overtaking him and Murray still has to prove himself in a Slam first, it will depend a lot on how both Djokovic and Rafa play next year, after wimbledon would be the best guess.

After Wimby but before us open most likely (if not after the U.S. open). I see Fed getting it for a while. Djokovic will regain it however by years end.

What are you talking about. The first tournament where actually Fed has less points to defend than Nadal are IW and Miami. It is really a very small difference SFs for Fed and Fs for Nadal. Fed will most probably not play MC so his chances are not looking any good unless he wins every other tournament until Wimbledon. I don't think you should count Fed as any contender for N1 at this point. At least not before he wins a major tournament next year.

i wholeheartedly wish federer to get this one more week he needs for the record, that he didn't utilize when he had the biggest chance due to own negligence

though we need to remember fed got these points when djokovic and rafa were, like, non-existent on tour

i'm sure they come back strong with the start of the season plus it's not like other players wouldn't make upsets against him as soon as he falls into his fave "im a lazy god" mood we saw when he was losing to, for instance, montanes

it's possible for him, but it's not only in his hands now

i remember last year after fed also won wtf people also predicted him regaining everything, and it was not quite the case

In a way it's good that he did not get the record. Gives him more motivation. That's not to say he will get to number one (although I think he will for a month or two) but at least he should be more motivated with that tasty record within site.

He doesn't even have to win anything, he should mostly outperform Nadal and Fed; so if those two have a mediocre year, Nole could stay #1 without too big effort

Around RG and Wimbledon time, as usual.

In 08, Rafa basically took over #1 after winning Wimbledon.
In 09, Fed took back #1 after winning Wimbledon.
In 10, Rafa took it back after winning RG.
In 11, Djokovic took it after winning Wimbledon

I don't think he'll lose it. Maybe to Federer after the USO.
