For No.1vak to end #1, I think he needs to:

-Maintain his points, no one's gonna get 13000 points if he has them all
-Win one other big tourney or get to the finals of 2 others (e.g. Win RG or WTF, or finals at both)

For Fed to end #1, I think he needs to:

-Win 1 or more Grand slam events
-Defend at least 4 of 6 titles from last year
-Improve his results from the Summer Hard court season and season's end
-Win the WTF

For Murray to end #1, I think he'll need to:

-Defend his midseason points
-Improve his results in the clay swing and the after USO swing

As you guys can see, Fed has the toughest road to #1, by virtue of his smaller schedule and many tourney wins last year. Murray will need to improve on clay to move up, there are just too many points up for grabs there to just sit out the season. Novak just needs to keep doing what he's doing and he'll be fine.
