    From what I understand he still has to win it,otherwise he stays #2 even if he reaches the final.

    I believe with Rafa's withdrawal (i.e., playing no matches) and Fed winning would put Fed at #1 by maybe 100 points. The adding and dropping of points is beyond my understanding!

    If Murray wins he is 15 points away from being number one. Actually I'm not sure, since he didnt even play the first round I don't think he even gets those 10 points. So Murray would be just five points from #1 if he won wimbledon.

    Federer has to win to get the number one ranking.

    I think if Federer wins then he would gain 600 points since he has 1400 from last year.
    So Federers 10,620(Current)+600(if he wins)= 11,220
    Nadal will be 12,735(Current)-2000(Withdrawing from Wimbledon)=10,735

    So I believe Federer would be ahead by 485 points if he wins Wimbledon.

    On a side note, does anyone know why they lowered the runner up points?

    So if Federer wins, he's guaranteed to get his number one spot back.

    Fed needs to play his game to win Wimby. That's it. If he plays his game, I don't see anybody beating him. Not even Murray.

    Whoa! If Djokovic beats Federer in the semis and Murray in the final, they'll all be less than 100 points away from each other.
