There are a few events scheduled to take place between the final of the Australian Open and March 8 where Nadal could pick up points. The Rotterdam Open is the most likely competition which he could participate in.

Reaching the quarter-finals would be enough to see Nadal knock Djokovic off top spot in the rankings.

But if Nadal does win both the ATP Cup and Australian Open then Djokovic himself has other tournaments he could enter – Cordoba Open or Open Sud de France – which could ensure he stays top.

Whatever happens over the next few weeks though, Djokovic looks a strong favourite to eventually take Federer’s record of total weeks spent at world No 1.

However, the Swiss tennis icon is unlikely to have his record of consecutive weeks spent at world No 1 – 237 between 2004 and 2008 – under threat any time soon.
