I agree that WTF would be the cherry on Fed's cake. It would make his season exceptional particularly in view of his age BUT # 1 + better perf in slams (1 title + 2 finals) to me overtakes #2 + WTF. It would put them close though, almost equal.
Well Djokovic being number one player is because he was more consistant in slams, so it's kind of the same point. But I'd say if Federer wins the WTF, Djokovic would be the more consistant player and deserving number one, but Federer would have won more big titles, and be the better winner.

That's something we already know from the stats anyway. That is not more important than slam stats. And Djoko beat Fed at AO and USO the last 4 times they met.
Don't get the point of bringing up Djokovic winning the last 4 times at USO and AO combined? Federer beat Djokovic at Wimbledon and RG 1 out of 2 times, might as well just say Djokovic won 5 out of the last 7, but even this has nothing to do with this year in which they are 1-1 at slams, both in titles and H2H. And better indoor player + better grass player + in terms of WINNING titles, better clay thanks to madrid. Point is in terms of winning titles, they've all had the chance across every surface, if Federer has managed to equal Djokovic without Indoor and then better him with it, it proves he's been better at winning titles.
How to clarky - work out most or only realistic outcome, claim the opposite
Federer, Djokovic, Delpo fan (also like Nalbandian, Dimitrov, Tsonga)
