Nadal is ahead by 135 points. Nadal: 936, Federer: 801.
Federer is entered to play in one remaining Grand Slam worth 200 points for the winner, and six Masters Series worth 100 points each for winner, in four months.
Federer is hoping for others to take Nadal out early, to gain on the point total. But even if Nadal manages to reach the final without winning the title, it could still keep him within striking distance. Specially if Federer is not able to win most of his events.
Remember Federer is going after the ‘six straight years at No. 1’ stat of Sampras.
