    Since we're in the middle of the clay season (and Nadal is gaining some ground) I think it would be fun to see where everyone who actually has a chance stands in the race. Even though I think Federer is too far behind to matter this year in the race, I'll put him in bold as he's the part of the top 4.

    Current race:
    1. Djokovic 3720 (+400 for the final)
    2. Murray 2720
    3. Nadal 2500 (+400 for the final)

    4. Ferrer 2370

    9. Federer 1170

    Those micky mouse tournaments Nadal won have certainly helped him.

    He's won a 250 but also a 500 and maybe tomorrow he will have 2 masters under his belt. Doesn't seem like mm to me. If he keeps his edge over Djokovic on clay and stays fit year round, he has a very good chance of recovering #1 within the next 12 months.

    Almost as good a chance with a lottery ticket. With many of the top guys playing a limited schedule, it's going to be hard to predict. Can you imagine how barren some of the post-USO tournaments might be? I wouldn't be surprised to see Djokovic, Nadal, and Fed play almost nothing before the WTF - 2 tournaments at most. Thus Murray could get #1 by just showing up in Asia and playing a few, then playing a few more in Europe.

    By the way, this week is nº77 of total weeks at nº1 for Djokovic.

    He will surpass Hewitt's 80 total weeks at nº1 during the following month.

    Above there are still Agassi with 101 weeks, Nadal with 102 weeks, Borg with 109 weeks (Djokovic could surpass them during this year), and further away is McEnroe with 170 weeks, Connors with 268 weeks, Lendl with 270 weeks, Sampras with 286 weeks and Federer with 302 weeks.
