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