Hi Barry, After watching Federer lose to Soderling today my question is about the rankings system. As i understand it Federer will drop to 8390 pts and if Nadal wins RG he will move upto 8700 pts and thus gain the number 1 spot. So, in order for Federer to retain his number 1 spot Nadal must not win RG. However, isn't Nadal all but guaranteed the number 1 spot as he can do nothing but gain pts at Queens Club and Wimbledon (a possible 2250 pts !) and Federer cannot gain any pts at all? If this is correct do you agree with the current rankings system as it seems to reward a players efforts one year only to punish them the next.
