I am sorry but he is not playing "second best" as you said, otherwise he would be number 2 in ATP race. Which he isn't.It's an argument that he's at least playing 2nd best this season. He's only played 3 events.
true, but he cant say that because of that federer he is "playing second best" this season.FedFan is a dedicated fedtard, but he has a point. Roger is not playing dramatically bad, he's still able to reach high rounds, and saying he's doomed is overreacting and exaggerating by a mile
I think it would make more sense to just take the top 3 results of the players, rather than to divide their total points by number of events entered.
So it would be more like
Djokovic - 327
Tsonga - 170
Nadal - 159
Federer - 135
So Federer would still be fourth.
At the same time, I agree that it's too early to declare Federer doomed. If after 6 or 7 events, he's not in the top 2, then it's time to worry.
