Yay!! So that means he will get to 288 at least... at least until the Olympics are over, so that would put him into 289-290?

If Murray does really well at the Olympics, he can close the gap between him and Rafa and will have a real chance to get the #3 ranking.

yeah, but the thing is #3 or #4, it doesn't really matter (it's more to do with prestige in a way).

That is true, for the top 4, #2-4 don't really matter as far as the draws go as you'd still have to face 2 of the other 3. And the upward ranking doesn't really have much of a psychological effect for Murray since he's already been #2 a while ago.

Yes, mav. Roger will at least get to 290 weeks number 1. After that, it all depend on how well he and Nole result in the OLympic.

Cincinnati Update:

If Federer reaches the final, he retains #1.

If Djokovic is to re-ascend to No. 1, he must reach the final and hope Federer loses before the quarter-finals. If Federer were to reach the quarter or semi-finals, Djokovic could overtake the Swiss by winning the title.

NEWS : Murray has a good chance to overtake Nadal !!

With Rafa not playing cincinnati & now US OPEN, if murray plays well at both these tournys, he can overtake nadal! !

Currently, Nadal is at no.3 position with 8895 pts.
& Andy Murray is at no. 4 position with 8200 pts.

who expected this ???? :))

these current rankings are of zero significance and are not a true reflection of the real standings........tennis without nadal is as good as brazil without beaches........

zero significance to Nadal fans maybe, everyone else would disagree.

Straight up truth here.  Tennis goes on when players are injured or out.  Who was #1 in 82 83 84?  Connors/Mac.  I can hear the same argument 'if Borg were still playing, he'd have been #1.  Connors and Mac should have asterisks, their achievements have zero meaning'.  How about all the injuries Haas suffered early in his career, after getting to #2?  What about Delpo who had severe wrist injury after getting the 09 USO?  Does Nadal's 2010 get an asterisk because an about to dominate Delpo was missing?  Rubbish.  Get better soon and come back strong Rafa, but you get no accolades when you're on the sidelines.
Good luck on the court is nice to have, but it's usually extraneous when playing against Baker.

They only have 75 point difference.

That was before the tournament started. Djokovic now loses what he gained last year and so does Fed.
I think it was 600 for Djokovic and 180 for Fed. so 600-180 + the 75 Fed had = 495.
 
Djokovic needs to have at least 495 points more in Cincy to be #1 if I didn't make a mistake.
