I thought he had due to his 0 pointer earlier on, then I read a thread yesterday where people said he actually had to make it to the QF's..... tell me, does he need to beat wawrinka to get 300 or has he already secured it (even if djok wins)??

He still needs to beat Wawrinka, apparently. Either way, 299/300, what difference does it make? It's just 1 week.

It needs to be 300 man. Sounds cooler.

Federer's career is reduced to being Spadea-like at best if he doesn't make 300 weeks. It's 300 or the retirement speech.

Okay, 300 is cooler than 299. But is, say, 302 cooler than 299? No :)

The 300 weeks is a result of those 17 Grand Slams. You can't compare the destination to the journey and say the journey was sweeter, even if it's true :)

Yeah, but 299 is so close to 300.....

Even if he lost to Wawrinka, he can still get 300 weeks in Basel (Djokovic won't play there/will lose 150 points) so don't worry "Fed army"....

Federer is defending the title there so he won't gain any points, unfortunately, even if he wins. Did Djokovic play Basel last year?

Yes, he played. He reached the semis(lost to Nishikori), so he will lose 180 pts.

Haha, if fed gets to 300 weeks, the next monumental task will obviously be 1000 career wins. He's at around 860 now. Now I know he needs 1000 career wins.

This is how amazing Fed has become. His stats are becoming video game like. It's like playing Tony Hawk and trying to get a perfect run with all the grabs and tricks.

I hope Federer is stuck on 299 weeks so he is forced to play next year so Rafa can increase the slam h2h from 8-2 to 10-2.

Careful, maybe Nadal won't get past Rosol and make it 0-3 against him in slams.

Agassi didn't take performance-enhancing drugs. It didn't concern the ATP in any way.

Is that right ? Assuming Djoko wins Shanghai and Fed loses to Wawa, how many points does Fed need to defend in Basel to get back to #1 ?

Roger has won Basel last year. So he won't gain any points there even if he wins the tournament this year

True. But if Djokovic doesn't play this year, he loses his points from his SF last year. So, relatively, Federer could go past him again.

I know. Though Fed won't gain any points in Basel, I am sure he can't get to no.1 if he loses his first match there. What is the minimum round he needs to make in Basel if he needs to get #1 back ? Also is it official that Djoko won't play Basel ?

Here's how the rankings system works. It's a 1-year rolling system where everything you've done in the past 12 months counts. Let's say you won Wimbledon in 2011 and are holding 12000 points before Wimbledon 2012. 2000 of those 12000 points are from winning the 2011 Wimbledon. If you only make the Finals of Wimbledon in 2012, you gain 1200 points (for making the Final) but the 2000 points from the previous year's Wimbledon drop off. So, effectively, you lose 800 points. Your new ranking points will be 11200. So Federer will not gain any points even if he wins Basel. But he could go past Djokovic because Djokovic will lose his SF points from last year's Basel and won't gain any if he doesn't play this year's Basel.

I'm happy to say, your post indicates that Rafa is going to be on your mind forever, because you'll always wish he was doping. You are going to be disappointed for the rest of your life, all because of Rafa.

I understand how the ranking system works, I just wanted to know the exact points calculation for the scenario being discussed. For instance, can Fed afford to not win Basel (i.e drop a few points there) and still get back #1 from Djoker who will drop all his Basel points. I guess I would get my answer if I looked up how much the point differential between these two would be if Fed loses to Wawa and Djoker wins Shanghai.

Anyway, to answer your question, if Federer were to lose to Wawrinka, and Djokovic were to win Shanghai, Federer would need to win Basel to get to #1 again, assuming Djokovic doesn't play Basel.

Thanks, that answers my question.

Yeah, he can't afford to lose any points. Because the difference between the title and the final is 200 points (title - 500 points, final - 300 points), which is more than what Djokovic will drop if he doesn't play (180).
