concurred.......people who are expecting rafa to be rusty after the comeback are in for a surprise........he is used to these extended injury breaks........he is still the owner of the current top 3.........djokovic had just one great season, that's it........he is back to being rafa's pigeon........OK, Nadal is not the real numero uno (can't spell today, but you get my point). Nole is ... cough, cough. However, Nadal was injured back in 2009, came back in 2010 and won 3 slams ... so I'll give you that. you might be onto something. Now, I expect Fed tards to come back at me telling me he is 'the actual number one' although we all know about the race thingy. it's all good with me. bring it on, biotches
nadal is the real no.1.......
The "actual number 1" is what the rankings are for - they show the points accumulated over the last 52 weeks. So as of now, Roger is the "actual number 1".
The Race to London
, on the other hand, depicts the points accumulated in a calendar year. So if you wanna say that Nole is the "actual number 1 of 2012 so far
", you are absolutely right. But he is not the "actual number 1".
It's all about the semantics, Alex
To go back on topic, we don't know what will happen next year. Who knows Rafa might come back in great form and win the Calendar GS.
But anyway, I am betting on Nole to win the French Open next year and complete his set of majors.
