Scenario 1) Roger Federer wins the title

#1 Roger Federer : 10620 + 600 = 11220

#2 Rafael Nadal : 12735 - 2000 = 10735

#3 Andy Murray : 9230 + 700 = 9930 (assuming he's the beaten finalist)


Scenario 2) Andy Murray wins the title

#1 Rafael Nadal : 12735 - 2000 = 10735

#2 Andy Murray : 9230 + 1500 = 10730

#3 Roger Federer : 10620 - 200 = 10420 (assuming he's the beaten finalist)


Scenario 3) Novak Djokovic wins the title

#1 Rafael Nadal : 12735 - 2000 = 10735

#2 Roger Federer : 10620 - 680 = 9940 (assuming he's the beaten semi-finalist)

#3 Andy Murray : 9230 + 700 = 9930 (assuming he's the beaten finalist)

#4 Novak Djokovic : 7860 + 1930 = 9790


Note: Winner 2000, finalist 1200, semi-finalist 720

thanx for summing it up.I think that scenario no.2 will be the worse for Nadal.He will have the no.1 spot still but only until Murray's penalty vanishes,and then Murray will be no.1..only to give it to Fed one week later.So we will have 3 guys competing for no.1 all very close to each other.

Disagreed, Federer winning i will move him 900 point ahead in the race for year end no. 1. I think that's worst case scenario as it will be very tough t be 900 points clear of Federer in the HC and indoor season unless Rafa wins the US Open

Besides just the new rankings, there are a few other milestones for Federer if he wins:
1. Breaks his & Sampras records for GS singles titles.
2. Breaks his own record for consecutive GS semis.
3. Breaks his and Lendl's records for GS finals.
4. By regaining #1 and keeping it for another 30 weeks or so, he will break Sampras record of 268 weeks at #1. If Nadal's knees are that injured, I can't see him regaining #1 on American hard courts. Maybe on the soft clay next year, but he's never performed that well in the US Open series even when he was healthy.
5. Speaking of Sampras, a Federer win would be #6 at W, just one short of Sampras' record.
