the ranking gap would still be too large I think. the ranking doesn't lie that much and lets be honest - 3 grand slam finals (of which he won one) is still pretty amazing. if it wasn't for federer, he would've had 4 grand slam finals (as well as last year).
it would just show that the gap isn't too big and federer still has enough class not only to compete but also win vs everyone.

but why don't we continue the discussion after the match? perhaps it's not even an issue after.

by the way: when someone is looking for the "best player of the year" it usually doesn't matter whether he's 17 or 31. otherwise the award would be "best achievement" or something like that.

ps: were there any not-year-end-#1-players awarded with "best player"?
