It is hard to predict how long can Federer stay on top in this year.

Djokovic has good chance to back No.1 in end this year. To do it, firstly he has to defence all points he got start now to US open. That is 3600 points. Then, he can go to Beijing Open and Shanghai Open to gain free point because he is injured and pulled out. The the last three tournaments Swiss Indoor, Paris Master, ATP World Final, he didn't do well. Federer has 3000 points to defence in these tournaments, and he has 560 points.

I will be very surprised to see Federer finish end of this year as World No.1 and tie Sampras record.

Djokovic is playing Toronto from what I heard, he should skip it as it may take too much out of him for Cinci and then the USO.

I'm reposting this here because I might want to revisit this discussion later this year.

Just LOL... And your comment couldn't be more pathetic... Nadal hasn't won a single title outside of clay for over two years!!!! Get over it.... Just lame... Nadl has never been a force on HCs por quite sometime...

Let me know the next title Nadal wins outside of clay!!!! LMFAO....

No need to say more....

I'll say this much about his comment. This year was shaping up to be Roger's greatest year of his career. That's why reaching #1 when he did and the way he did it trumps every thing he did in 2005 or 2006. But, like always, a top player falls out of the race due to injury. That said, the slop he was whipping up on in those years couldn't hold a candle to Nole and Murray, so it still may prove to be just that. It's just a shame Rafa couldn't stay healthy this year.

I'll grant you Nole....but again.... I'm not putting Murray up there yet until.....There have been many folks to win a gold medal and it didn't do too much for the rest of their tennis career.  It's going to be interesting to see what it does (if anything) to Murray in his quest.

I'll take Murray every time over a part-time Hewitt, Ferrero, Coria, Safin, Haas, and Nalbandian.

Are you kidding me?!?!!

Part-time? Maybe.

But before their 24 years of age, they were also very accomplished players, most of 'm in possession of a Grand Slam title. Soon after, the injuries kicked in (for most of 'm)...

Let's just hope that Murray stays injury free and "hungry". There has been a time that he was playing more tennis on his playstation than on the courts. But I'm in no doubt that he is hungry, especially after his gold medal, beating Djokovic and Federer on the way.

I couldn't agree more here. I think that Federer is playing 25% better than during his alleged prime (2004-2006). His attacking game is just so effective right now. The serve, volley, and the backhand(-return) have significantly improved over the years.

Federer's second is improved. The placement of his second serve is excellent. And he comes to net more than his entire career at the moment, his coach help him to bring new type of form to himself.

I don't know. Maybe his wife Mirka and twin daughter help him to get momentum or it is just his passion for tennis.

the moment nadal is out of the scene, federer finds the strength of 1000 lions........his mind is free without any scares and the rest of the game just starts flowing........all that repressed aggression is out at once and makes him more than a force to reckon with........

djokovic (and murray) has the game to defeat him but they are just not as big as nadal when it comes to staying tough and thinking on the court........also, djokovic looks very beatable this year........he is back to his 1.0 version........

Marian Vajda to Novak Djokovic, "I saw you beat that man like I never saw no man get beat before, and the man KEPT COMING AFTER YOU! Now we don't need no man like that in our lives."

i demand french open to be renamed RAFAEL GARROS

Djokovic still leads the race, has had his second best year ever (so far), and just reached back-to-back finals at hardcourt masters tournaments.

Ah yes, everything in Federer's mind revolves around Nadal. Surely especially after that US Open loss to Novak, the FIRST thing in his mind was Nadal too!

He never remeber that Federer said he want to back No.1 since 2010. 2010 is Nadal's year and 2011 is Djokovic's year. :rofl_2:

No, it's because Federer decided to "donate" the No.1 ranking...
Just as Rafa "donated" slams.....  :)
