The odds of Roger Federer catching Novak Djokovic for the No.1 ranking this year are now objectively long. But heading into the ATP World Tour Finals that begin Sunday in London, Federer still has a chance, and sometimes a chance is all that is required. Remember 2000 in Lisbon, where Marat Safin, much like Djokovic this time, was the man in command. Three victories in those year-end championships would have secured the top ranking for the Russian. He could manage only two before losing to Pete Sampras in his final round-robin match and then to Andre Agassi in the semifinals. But neither Sampras nor Agassi would take the trophy. Gustavo Kuerten, normally no master of indoor tennis, beat them on consecutive days to become the unlikely champion and the only South American man to finish a year at No.1. “It had to be like the perfect storm,” said Brad Gilbert, who was coaching Agassi that year. “Safin had two chances to clinch it, and Kuerten would have lost it if he had lost any of his last four matches.”
