Fighting Nadal - Djokovic is hotter than ever

Rafael Nadal will not loosen, and remains at the top of the rankings. Titles resisting force, and large, the increasingly strong attacks by Serbian Novak Djokovic, who this week appears closer than ever to the dream number one ranking. The list released today by the ATP Rafa shown on top with 12,070 points and Nole a step down, with 12,025. Today the fight is raised exclusively among them. Roger Federer, defending Wimbledon just 360 points for losing in the quarterfinals, is third with 9,230 points and have mathematical chances to beat the Spanish, but not Djokovic.
Nadal is registered to play this week at Queen's, which usually begins to adapt to grass before Wimbledon. There stands the 45 points scored a year ago to reach the quarter-finals, where he was eliminated by Feliciano Lopez. It will be a good opportunity to take a point ahead of Djokovic, who did not participate in the tournament and see how you go away the 20 points scored a year ago. This is the first time since 2005 that the Serbian special preparation does not play in the transition from London.
But the hour of truth for Nadal and Djokovic will be from June 20. Wimbledon starts that day. Rafa will not be enough to repeat the title won in 2010 against Tomas Berdych to retain the throne. Djokovic will also need to exceed the quarter-finals, where he will hit in 2010. If Nole than quarters, inevitably will be number one. It was said, Federer can expect to regain the number two ranking. But that should be a champion and that Nadal does not go the semifinals. A Djokovic can not reach it even if the Serbs lost in first round, because it stands only 720 points and the difference is 2,795.
The fight is also hot in the race to be the one in Argentina. The great Roland Garros did Juan Ignacio Chela allowed to return to the top 20 for the first time since January 2008 (became 15th August 2004, when Coria was the 3rd, Nalbandian 9th and Gaudio's 10th). El Flaco occupies 20 th place with 1,475 points, Juan Martin del Potro is 22 º to 24 º and Nalbandian 1445 with 1,425.
