What Nadal Needs to Remain No. 1 at Year End

Even if he doesn't win the Barclays ATP World Tour Finals in London, the odds are still pretty good that Rafael Nadal will finish 2013 as the No. 1-ranked player.

Here's the ranking scenario in London, per the ATP:

NO. 1 RANKING UPDATE – For the first time since the ’09 Barclays ATP World Tour Finals, year-end No. 1 in the Emirates ATP Rankings is still up for grabs between current No. 1 Rafael Nadal and No. 2 Novak Djokovic.

Here’s the No. 1 scenario:

 If Nadal wins two matches (2 RR matches or 1 RR match and SF match), he will clinch the No.1  Djokovic must win 2 RR matches and win the tournament for a chance at the No. 1 ranking.

Nadal and Djokovic will both play their first matches on Tuesday. In a rematch of Saturday's Paris Masters semifinals, Nadal will play David Ferrer and Djokovic will play Roger Federer.
