Wimbledon what if

The top three tennis ranks could change considerably depending on the outcome at Wimbledon in the next two weeks.

The biggest plausible change is this:
Hewitt defeats Federer and Nadal wins the tournament. Nadal then #1 on 6055 and Federer #2 on 6050.

More plausible is this:
Djokovic defeats Federer and goes on to win, defeating Nadal at the final. Federer remains #1 on 6350, Djokovic now #2 on 5910 and Nadal #3 on 5755.

Also plausible:
As above but Nadal beats Djokovic in the final. Federer remains #1 on 6350 with Nadal at #2 on 6055 and Djokovic at #3 on 5610. This would put just one tournament win between the top three players.

Djokovic could only reach the #1 ranking if he won and Federer went down in the 1st round, a highly unlikely scenario.

This narrowing of ranking points makes for an exciting Wimbledon ahead.
