Exactly. So to reach 300 weeks at no 1 Federer needs to beat

- a qualifier or Zhang Ze (a young Chinese player without a lot of experience on the ATP tour)
- Wawrinka (most likely)

That of course assuming Djokovic wins Beijing and then Shanghai which is not an easy task, even for him.
Just shows you how pointless H2H's are. Nadal beat Fed but in the end it meant jack, they both walked away with nothing. It's about winning titles.
