Who will be the Swiss number 1 by the end of the year?

In the race rankings it currently looks like...
.
7. Federer 3055
8. Wawrinka 2970

& Stan is currently playing a tournament & could pass Federer in the race rankings this week

5 sets over 5 matches vs top 8 players at the end of a gruelling season is a bit much. Over one week too. Not even the Slams are that intense. You'll play that level of competition 3 times if you make the Final, 4 if you're unlucky with the draw. Maybe just the Final could be 5 but the whole tournament should be the same. Tour Finals are nowhere near the level of Slams so there's no need to put them on the same level with 5 sets.

I meant 5 sets in the final, not throughout the tournament

You point out the reasons why 5 sets throughout the tournament would be a bad idea, but 5 sets for the final i think would be good.

I don't think changing the format for the Final is the greatest idea ever. Maybe if the tournament meant anything besides bragging rights. It wouldn't happen without the top players going for it and I doubt any of them would want a 4+ hour 5 setter at the end of the season to deal with.

Some good matches there in the early rounds.

Djokovic/Gasquet now.:mark Hope Dicky G can pull out another performance like yesterday. I hear it was more aggressive but he's not going to beat beat Novak. At least it's another step towards seeing him in London by getting this far. His Shanghai draw though doesn't look great. Pospisil R1, Monfils R2 and Federer next.

Congrats Rafa too. Barring injury, certain to be the new record slam winner in a couple of years and go down as the best ever. With the injuries he's recovered from and the era in which he's won his slams it's just incredible. Federer pretty much had 03-06 to himself without the French. When you look at who Rafa's beaten to win slams it's unbelievable.

Del Potro is #5 now after reaching the final, highest ranking since his injury in 2010. Hope he can win the title against Raonic tommorow.

Del Potro beats Raonic and wins Toyko, his 3rd title this season


Edit: Djokovic beats Nadal 6-3, 6-4 in Beijing. Kinda expected that, Nadal not been on form this week and got what he wanted in this event anyway(the #1 ranking).
