Listen, try to understand. There is no magic number. It varies, very substantially, each year. There is no way anyone can give you a genuine answer to this question.
I will tell you that if you are in the top 3 in the race by Wimbledon you are very likely to be in the top 8 at the end of the year providing you don't get injured or go into a terrible slump.
