There are ATP Challenger events available from 80 points to 125 points - if Djokovic acts stubborn (or let's say if Pete pays him) he can play and easily win an 80 point Challenger tournament, he can climb back to #1 spot before Roger can break Sampras' 286 wk record.
Is this even a possibility in this limited timeframe?
Even if he did, it would take a week to reflect the points. In other words, Federer has tied Pete regardless of what Djokovic does. Lastly, Federer could play the same challenger event to prevent it from having any effect. Neither Djokovic nor Federer would ever do it anyhow.
