The asses are back :shrug:I assume that you are that one person who voted for Rafa becoming No.1! :smooch:
P.S.Bring us back the ass, please!
trust me, I waited for a long time
I know all that above :sad: but I hoped that a least one Rafa fan has the courage to be delusional. Now I see that there are 7! :worship:The asses are back :shrug:
And no, I didn't vote for that option because I am not delusional :lol:
Even the most ardent Rafa supporter must see that Nole becoming #2 is more likely than Rafa becoming #1.
Federer is going to pick up enough points at IW/Miami and Rome to see him as #1 till at least after Wimbledon. No way he's picking up 80 points at the hc Masters this year.
Rafa has 3,605 points to defend till Canada.
Nole has 2,385
Fed has 2,625
Imagine Nole and Rafa both defend most of their IW/Miami points, but Nole gets a little closer with better results in the two Masters, Rotterdam and Dubai.
Say he's even 600 points behind going into the clay season. I can't imagine Rafa will defend his points at all 4 clay tournaments this year - say he drops Hamburg. Then Nole plays Hamburg and wins. That's the #2 spot there. And that's without Nole gaining any points in the other clay Masters. And Rafa keeping all his. At some point his clay dominance has to end. Not even end, just be slightly less spectacular.
It would be silly to argue that that isn't more likely than Rafa winning Rotterdam and Dubai, and Fed losing early in Dubai (which would be his last chance to snatch a week at #1 till .. ever probably :lol :sad:
So I'm not saying Nole will become #2, but it does appear more likely.
