Roger Federer is currently enjoying holidays. After his loss to Thanasi Kokkinakis at the Miami Open, the Swiss player decided to skip the clay season again. Still, he won't lose any point in the rankings as he didn't earn anything from mid-April to mid-June in 2017.
On the other hand, Rafael Nadal has to defend 4,680 points in the next two months and if he doesn't successfully defend his titles in Monte Carlo, Barcelona and Madrid, Federer will become the world no.
1 again. Federer will have the pressure on his shoulders again in Halle and Wimbledon as he is the defending champion. '(The ranking) is less important,' Federer recently explained.
'The most important thing was to be back (as the world no. 1) in Rotterdam. I always said that finishing the year as no. 1 wasn't a goal.' ALSO READ: Kristina Mladenovic: 'I really like Roger Federer a lot' .
