correct me if i am wrong, but if Novak can win Rome also, will he usurp Rafa, and become the new number one?  clap

OK if Yamor is not on-line then this is MY interpretation of the situation............

Nadal won Madrid 2010    -400 points

Djokovic did not play + 1000 points

Nadal won Rome 2010      - could loose up to 1000 points

Djokovic got to 1/4's 180 points to defend

So as it is at the moment:-

Nadal after losing today is on 11,515

Djokovic having won and having NO points to defend is on 10,710

Therefore going into Rome Djoko is 805 points behind Nadal

If Djoko and Nadal had another Final encounter.....and Djoko won,,,,,,,, Djoko would gain 820 points and Nadal would loose 400

Any other scenario ........at this time of night after almost a bottle of wine .......is beyond me yay

As far as I make out Djokovic can lose to Nadal in the final of Rome and French Open and he would still become numero uno by a massive 35pts! Very interesting...

From the Independent:
http://www.independent.co.uk/sport/tennis/murray-full-of-the-confidence-needed-to-conquer-rome-after-being-buoyed-up-by-cahill-filling-the-coaching-gap-2281304.html

As usual I'm rather wary of pre-tourno hype.   Can read what he says about the elbow both ways.  Hope the Cahill input will indeed buoy him up.

Thank you for your sentiments. However afraid I'm not so much of a genius after all  The figures I quoted last night are WRONG as the ATP had already deducted the points for Rome on 2/5/11  doh AND they now have 2 drop dates for points won at Madrid for 2010 & 2011 of 16/5/11 & 7/5/12???

Don't know why they have to make it so complicated for us  Rolling Eyes

So I'm just away to recalculate the figures - and if I have time I'll post an up-to-date rankings chart  Fingers crossed

Poor boy if he loses he panned. We should all try to be a bit more understanding.
He played very well against Rafa for a set.  If his elbow is still sore he will not be able
to practice for long periods. He will do his best and thats all we can ask of him.
Yes.....I'd still rather he rested though if the elbow is not right! A week or two might make all the difference!

I think I heard that if Djoker wins Rome and Nadal drops out in the semi's or sooner, then Novak will be number 1

It's going to be Malisse. Andy should be able to overcome him and gain some confidence with an easy win. cmonandy
