    Since 2008, Federer and Nadal have the same average Year End Ranking.

    Federer - #2, #1, #2, #3, #2 = average ranking of #2
    Nadal - #1, #2, #1, #2, #4 = average ranking of #2

    Note: obviously, Nadal's two #1 rankings gives the slight edge to Nadal.

    Who do you think will finish with the higher ranking next year?

    For those that say Federer thrived in a weak era (pre Nadal), this would seemingly indicate that he has done quite well. And if he has a higher ranking than Nadal in 2013, he has done remarkably well.

    I actually see Nadal ending 2013 as either #2 or #1, and Federer at #3 or #4.

    Old Fed is obviously thriving in a weak era now if he can still post better results than these peaky-prime GOAT candidates.

    Old relics sure wouldn't have had a chance of threatening the #1 spot in the much-stronger era of 2004-2007... :D

    It's impossible that multiple players in one year finished on #1

    That doesn't mean they can't share the ranking during the three years mentioned later in that same post.
