He will lose 410 points. Maybe he will lose early in Dubai and IW as well...
Andy will lose 300 points after Dubai though, but hopefully he can make up for it in IW this year, especially since that's the only American hard court Masters that still evades him and Fed is the defending champ, so by winning it he could get closer again or even surpass Fed, depending on the latter's results in Dubai as well.
I wondered how many points Andy would lose by not playing Dubai, where he got to the final last year, so thanks for the info.
Fingers crossed that Andy will go well in Indian Wells and Miami, because that would surely help, although Fed having a dodgy Dubai would be useful. However, I must admit, in my mind I'm not looking at a specific time where Andy might get to no.2. I just feel that it will happen at some point this year. It feels almost inevitable now. That said, if it was to happen before the FO I wouldn't mind a bit lol.
