Up till RG, here are what they have to defend:
AO 360 + IW 45 + Miami 180 + Rome 360 + Madrid 180 + Acalpulco 500 + Barcelona 300 = 2225
Nadal: IW 360 + Miami 360 + MC 1000 + Madrid 90+ Rome 1000 + Barcelona 500 = 3410
So to sum up, Nadal is 1000 point behind (after AO point drops) and ~ 1200 more points to defend => a total of 2200 points to cover
....which I dont see as a very likely, and maybe very interesting too. Also, it marks the first time since 2005 Nadal is not seeded 1 or 2 at the clay slam.
Nadal won't be in the top 8 seeds at RG
