    Just doing some ranking calculation scenarios after Wimbledon

    RANKING SCENARIOS POST-WIMBLEDON (and post Olympics points drop)


    CURRENT RANKINGS:

    1. Djokovic (11830)
    2. Murray (8560)
    3. Federer (7740)
    4. Ferrer (7220)
    5. Nadal (6895)
    6. Berdych (4515)

    Since Olympics points will also drop next week, there could be a few dramatic changes

    It is assumed that there are no upsets till the QFs, and the quarterfinals are:
    Djokovic vs Berdych
    Ferrer vs del Potro
    Murray vs Tsonga
    Nadal vs Federer

    Now suppose these are the semis:
    Djokovic vs Ferrer, Murray vs Nadal/Federer

    Scenario 1: Nadal wins Wimbledon, defeating Federer in QFs, Murray in SFs and Djokovic in F.

    1. Djokovic (12040) (+480, -270)
    2. Nadal (8850) (+1955)
    3. Ferrer (7510) (+360, -70)
    4. Murray (7380) (-480, -700)
    5. Federer (5650) (-1640, -450)

    Scenario 2: Djokovic wins Wimbledon, defeating Nadal in the final

    1. Djokovic (12850) (+1280, -270)
    2. Nadal (8050) (+1185)
    3. Ferrer (7510) (+360, -70)
    4. Murray (7380) (-480, -700)
    5. Federer (5650) (-1640, -450)

    Scenario 3: Djokovic wins Wimbledon, defeating Murray in the final, Murray defeated Nadal in the SFs

    1. Djokovic (12850) (+1280, -270)
    2. Murray (7860) (-700)
    3. Nadal (7570) (+675)
    4. Ferrer (7510) (+360, -70)
    5. Federer (5650) (-1640, -450)

    Scenario 4: Djokovic wins Wimbledon, defeating Murray in the final, Murray defeated Federer in the SFs

    1. Djokovic (12850) (+1280, -270)
    2. Murray (7860) (-700)
    3. Ferrer (7510) (+360, -70)
    4. Nadal (7210) (+315)
    5. Federer (6010) (-1280, -450)

    Scenario 5: Djokovic wins Wimbledon, defeating Federer in the final

    1. Djokovic (12850) (+1280, -270)
    2. Ferrer (7510) (+360, -70)
    3. Murray (7380) (-480, -700)
    4. Nadal (7210) (+315)
    5. Federer (6490) (-800, -450)

    Scenario 6: Murray wins Wimbledon, defeating Djokovic in final and Nadal in SFs

    1. Djokovic (12040) (+480, -270)
    2. Murray (8660) (+800, -700)
    3. Nadal (7570) (+675)
    4. Ferrer (7510) (+360, -70)
    5. Federer (5650) (-1640, -450)

    Scenario 7: Murray wins Wimbledon, defeating Djokovic in final and Federer in SFs

    1. Djokovic (12040) (+480, -270)
    2. Murray (8660) (+800, -700)
    3. Ferrer (7510) (+360, -70)
    4. Nadal (7210) (+315)
    5. Federer (6010) (-1280, -450)

    Scenario 8: Federer wins Wimbledon, defeating Nadal in QFs, Murray in SFs and Djokovic in F

    1. Djokovic (12040) (+480, -270)
    2. Ferrer (7510) (+360, -70)
    3. Murray (7380) (-480, -700)
    4. Federer (7290) (-450)
    5. Nadal (7210) (+315)

    Scenario 9 (OUTSIDE CHANCE): Nadal wins Wimbledon, defeating Berdych in the final

    1. Djokovic (11200) (-360, -270)
    2. Nadal (8850) (+1955)
    3. Ferrer (7510) (+360, -70)
    4. Murray (7380) (-480, -700)
    5. Berdych (5700) (+1190, -5)
    6. Federer (5650) (-1640, -450)

    All this is predicated upon Ferrer reaching the semifinals. If Ferrer doesn't reach the semis and loses in QFs, his points will be 7150.

    Takeaways:
    -Djokovic will remain #1 with a big lead no matter what.
    -Ferrer is the biggest gainer if he can reach the SFs. He can go to #2 if Federer wins/reaches the final. Ferrer will be #3 if Murray doesn't reach the final, for sure.
    -Federer is the biggest loser. His ranking will DEFINITELY drop unless there are upsets. He will go down to #5 unless he wins, and will go down to #4 with a tiny lead even if he wins.
    -Nadal can be back to #2 if he reaches the final.
    -If Berdych can upset Nole, Federer might slip to #6.
    -Murray will stay in the top 4 for sure. To stay at #2 he HAS to reach the final.

    Far too much effort has gone into that. Hats off to you for doing it though, even if it does prove you're crazy

    Seeing Ferrer at No. 2 would be a little weird, but it's entirely possible that Murray might not reach the final - I just think he has the best chance to in the bottom half of the draw.

    I have so much respect for you doing this man! Such a good post.

    What about the scenario where Fognini realises he's possessed and destroys the rest of the competition?

    If Ferrer becomes No. 2 and stays there for some time, that could screw up the US Open and all other Grand Slams as we would have 3 out of the Big 4 in the same half of the draw each time!

    Thats a massive screw up. What must happen for a Nadal vs Federer encounter at the US Open. I really want them to have one match at the US Open. Thats the only Major Tournaments that has eluded them both from meeting each other.

    Yeah I would still love to see this, but the rate Federer is deteriorating and the ease with which Rafa normally defeats Federer now means it probably wouldn't be a great match compared to if they faced off 2-3 years ago. And for all the people saying Rafa missed the ticket at the US Opens before 2010 where he hadn't made the final, Federer had two such opportunities in 2010 and 2011, so the door swings both ways.

    A US Open final between them would have been interesting indeed.

    Aye, I think if Nadal is seeded 3 and Fed 5 they could meet in the quarters of the US Open
