None of them have shown any signs of losing as yet, but then the business end of the tournament has yet to begin.

I'd rank them Roger, then Rafa and then Nole in terms of favorites for this title, with it being really close between the Roger and Rafa if they meet in the final. That result could hinge on who has the more difficult semifinal. I seriously doubt Nole or Murray could beat Rafa and Roger back to back. As far as those dates in the semis go, Roger seems to have the easiest path, and Rafa the toughest path. Very exciting week ahead.

Incidentally, if Rafa loses before the final, we know Nole becomes #1. But, if Rafa loses and Roger wins the title, guess who is #2?

Chip, if Roger wins the final and gets his #2 back, who is #1, and who is #3?

chipnputt

Nole #1, Roger #1, Rafa #3. But for this to happen, Rafa has to lose before the final and Roger has to win it all.

Nole becomes #1 if Rafa loses or even if Rafa wins, Nole reaches the final.

Roger #2... sorry.

Chip... just curious... are you using my spreadsheet for that? Did you figure out how to use it?

Actually, got this from the following article:

http://www.wimbledon.com/en_GB/news/articles/2011-06-20/201106201308566476511.html

and then did some back of the envelope calculations to make sure the guy was correct. Your spreadsheet is awesome but haven't figured it out yet. I gave it to a colleague of mine, my spreadsheet guru, to look at but work has been kind of hectic and she hasn't been able to get to it. Let things calm down a bit and I'll ask her again.

Go to above site - click on points for each player
ex. Nadal click on his points 12,070
This will give you breakdown of points

so,
Nadal has 12,070, subtract points earned last year at Wimbledon (2,000)
12,070 - 2,000 = 10,070

Go to each players and do same so you know points they have at beginning Of
Wimbledon.


Points are added back at tournament moves along.

Here is breakdown of points to earn at Grand Slams:
Win all matches up to and including R32 - 90
Win all matches up to and including R16 - 180
Win all matches up to and including 1/4 - 360
Win all matches up to and including 1/2 - 720
Runner up add 1,200
Winner add 2,000
So before today's matches - all 4 have won up to and including R32
Beginning points reflect points they have at beginning of tournament after
I subtracted points earned last year

1. Nadal - 10,070 + 90 =10,160
2.Djoko - 11,285 + 90 = 11,375
3. Fed - 8,870 + 90 =8,960

So if Nadal loses today,Djokovic becomes #1 - Nadal points after Wimbledon will
be 10,160.

This is where I end - you can continue adding their points as they win matches
to figure out who is #1, #2, #3.... as the tournament progresses.

I've done this before and decided easier to wait til rankings come out Monday!
