To be more accurate, he is currently 1790 points behind and if he wins tomorrow, it drops to 1590 points.
Is he? I think he's currently 1650 points behind and that changes to either 1550 or 1750 depending on whether he wins today.
Either way, Nole has 970* more point to defend over the next 5 weeks, so it's maybe not quite such a big gap after all.
Can't make my mind up who'll win this one. Psychologically it's an important match though.
* or thereabouts, depending on how you count it
