Well, it was the best scenario possible. Nadal and Djoker not reaching the final so Rodge can enjoy a 1400 points (? more or less someone can do the calculations for a win). If he wins this, which I think he does, then that's a huge step toward regaining top ranking. He will also match Nadal's tally of Master 1000 titles won. Things on top are getting more interesting after today. Both Rafa and Djoker show a decline and the old man is there to take advantage. Can Rodge reach the top ranking and beat Sampras's record? The odds are in his favor, I'd say.
