Fed can run away with year-end #1

#1
If he wins Wimbledon, he will have 746 points. He basically needs to reach 2 semis at masters and pretty much he no one will be able to catch him at the end of the season. That's just scary.
 
#2
Right now Federer is 1,000 points ahead of Roddick on the entry system. While that's very impressive, Sampras was 2,000 points ahead of the #2 player after Wimbledon '94!
 
#3
I don't recall Sampras ever having hit the 5,600 point mark ever in his reign at #1. Sampras was in the 5,200 point range, but Fed has to have one of the highest point titles since the computer rankings were started.
 
#4
Don't know about that Chief, look at Sampras' results from Wimbledon '93 to Wimbledon '94. He won 3 slams in a row(4 out of 5) & multiple masters series.
 
#5
Assuming Fed wins Wimbledon, he will be 46-4 with 6 titles(2 slams & 2 masters series) for '04.
After Wimby '94, Pete was 56-5 with 8 titles (2 slams, 3 master series)
Incidently, Pete got injured in Davis Cup right after Wimbledon that year, & wasn't able to play until the US Open, where he wasn't physically ready for a slam. Without the injury, the year would have been even more amazing.
