This is where we obsessed fans can count numbers and create scenarios for Juan Carlos becoming #1...

Supposedly Agassi won't be defending his LA title or be playing for a while... so Juan Carlos has a great chance! (Agassi may change his mind just to be an ass.)

So Agassi isn't defending LA apparently. Does that mean his points will fall off and that Ferrero can pass him if he does well in his next couple of tournaments?

Maybe he does... he pulled out of Gstaad :sad:

I really want him to be #1... please try hard Juan Carlos!

I'm sure he'll get it some day, but I don't want it to nag him. I'd like him to get it this year, if only for a week.

Pleasssseeee vvvvaaammmoooosssss! I hope he'll play a lot of events on clay, etc... especially before Cincinnati where he has SF points to defend.

VAMOS! Stop being silly and take the #1!

I'm talking to myself a lot here. I just realized that Juan Carlos has had his best ever year at every slam so far.... QF at the Aussie, a win at the French, 4th round at Wimbledon.... hopefully he'll keep up the trend by winning the US Open ;)

Federer has sucked in the slams. I hope that this will allow Juan Carlos a better chance in the rankings since Federer can only use his best 5 events outside the slams... and he's already won 4 of them.

IS he really injuried or he's just taking a rest? I did hear his shoulder isn't feeling so well after Wimby, but an injury wasn't mentioned. I hope he's just resting bcos there's a lot of work to do for the rest of the season.

If I'm not mistaken, if he wins Kitzbuhel, he will get the #1 ranking on July 28. The week of July 28, Baldy will defend his LA/Washington points and likely to take it back. But no matter, as long as JC can get there, I don't care how long. So Vamos Juanqui, you must win Kitzbuhel.

After that, Baldy has a lot of USO and TMS points to defend, like 700 and 750. JC has 75 and 390, so he has a great chance to pass Baldy. But Rogi now is in the lead and may very well stay there since he's very few points from USO and the 4 remaining TMS to defend, 150 and 260 respectively. Rogi had a great indoor season last year but only one optional event (Vienna) which he has to defend his title that's counted towards his ranking at the moment, and he already won 5 titles. So I think Rogi is a bigger threat. I think at the end of the year, it will be JC and Rogi battling for the yearend #1, which is what I would love to see, as long as no Baldy and Pandy.

Anyway, I hope JC can at least get to #1 at the end of July. VAMOS JUANQUI

Is Federer really playing this week in Gstaad? What a mad man, he just won Wimbledon! No rest, I guess he wants #1 just like Juanqui does. He almost lost today, but pulled through in 3 sets. I don't think he'll win the tournament though, must be exhausted... and jet-lagged. Could Ferrero and Federer be the top 2 in the rankings going into the US Open, over Agassi? *salivates*

I guess Ferrero deserves a rest this week, we don't want him to be tired out going into the US Open (Federer will be if he doesn't lighten up on the schedule!) but he'll be at Stuttgart next week and can win plenty of points there - has nothing to defend, I believe. And then he's got those finalist points to defend at Kitzbuhel :( But plenty to gain at Sopot, even though I find it strange that he would enter a tournament with such a weak field.

What's this situation with Baldy? How can he defend his titlist points from LA and semifinalist points from Washington in the same week? Some points must be coming off, right? Oh please, I hope Enqvist enters that week and beats Agassi early, as he always does.

Anyway, Juan Carlos has a great chance to be #1 going into Montreal, methinks. And then who knows who will be #1 at the end of the year - either Ferrero, Federer, or Agassi?

Leo, Rogi shows up at Gstaad bcos it's a Swiss tourney. He won't add any point even if he wins it bcos his lowest best of 5 is 175 pts already. And I doubt that he will win Gstaad bcos he should be tired by now, hopefully, he will lose to Alex.

Baldy's LA pts comes off and he has to defend them a week later as the tourney got pushed back 1 wk and overlap with DC, so he will lose the DC pts completely in mid Aug :D . But those optional events are not that important, as long as he doesn't show up in Montreal (he always skip Canada :D *fingers crossed for this year*).

Hopefully, Juanqui can win Kitz and takes the #1 ranking, he'll likely lose it back to Baldy when Baldy plays in DC (unless he loses very early, which is unlikely). Then, the 2 TMS will decide who got the #1 seed going into USO, ideally, it will be Juanqui and Rogi as the first 2 seeds :D .

I'm still not sure if JC will go to Stutggart, he is not on the committment list, he'll need a wildcard to get in and if he intends to go, he needs to ask for one now.

Scott, you can find JC's schedule on his site:

But it seems his listed schedule is very tentative.

Thanks for the clarification, Vera. This race for #1 is really heating up. :D
