    Federer is falling in the rankings, hes been under a lot of pressure from the media. With that being said, what seed will roger federer end up with at the world tour finals? Can anyone see him falling past the 5 or 6 spot??

    It depends on how well he plays in USO series/USO. I think that if he comes back strong for Roger's and Cincy, than he is the favorite for USO and the rest of the year, including WTF. However, if he continues to play abysmally, then I don't think he will get past the quarters at USO, a bad performance yet again. If he does go down the second path, then imo Nadal, Murray, and maybe Roddick or Djokovic will dominate the rest of the year.

    we've never seen federer drop soo much in his career. we're talking about a catastrophic drop in which no one predicted or really expected. federer was coming off a really good 2008 and this year hes dropped all the way to number 3 in the world. federer is a great hard court player and eventually i feel he will return to number 1 after the us open in new york. if all goes right, his drop in the rankings will become an afterthought.

    Yeah I think that if he can win USO, everything will be forgotten. I know that I completely forgot Nadal dropped all the way to Number 4 as soon as he won MC. I also forgot Murray was Number 2 after he got pwned in USO last year, same with Djokovic and his entire year this year.

    Why would anyone move him up!?! To gain anything, he needs to reach the final. Plus nadal and djok didn't do that well last year. AND soderling and berdych can beat federer. HE IS MORTAL

    it;s real simple, if federer wins out from now, every tournament which he enters, which is likely, he will be the number 1 seed. i just dont see him losing to anyone on hardcourts in the us open series.

    its not like federer is declining. if anything federer is in the peak of his career, not the twilight. his shot selection last year was flawless, and his stamina can only increase. his mentality is that everyone is doubting me and im going to prove the world wrong again. hes done that before.

    Sorry, I thought I was the only one who had it turned that way. :( I can try and adjust it.

    The only way Federer can be first seed is if Nadal pulls out of the tournament like did two times already. It's clearly not a priority for him.

    Other than that, he will be 2-4, and it might be even worse seeing how bad his year has been since the OA.
