He just lost his 300 Dubai points from last year and he's going to lose 750 Olympics points in August. He's going to have to win Wimbledon to make up any points there. I don't see him doing anything major on clay. It's not his forte. I can't see him getting to #1 in the foreseeable future because Djoker's just too strong right now.
He's really not playing a lot this year Queen and Tokyo are the only tournaments he's playing outside the slams, 1000's and WTF
