Andy Murray at Wimbledon - June 24 - July 7, 2013

Quote

I'd agree with your friend. Ferrer has a GS semi and final, a Masters final, two other wins, two other finals and lots of points elsewhere. He has close to 1000 points more than Murray which I find hard to argue with.

And even if you only consider MS and GS, Ferrer is ahead by around 200 points.

The ATP race is just as deceiving as the official rankings and it's the best system we have for deciding who has had the most successful last x months. I assume you'd also argue that Rafa should be considered no. 4?

Of course, all this will change in 2 weeks when Andy wins Wimbledon!
But only because Murray missed the French Open. Hardly a fair comparison, is it?

If we look at points won compared to tournaments played, Murray is (well) ahead (351 - 291).

If we look at win to loss ratio, Murray is (well) ahead (5.4 - 3.3).

Ferrer is ahead in the race because he's played FIVE more tournaments, including a Slam.

You're welcome GM and Caroline. Smile Good to see a range of matches being covered as I don't really fancy watching Federer breeze through his opening round.

In honor of what will be my 200th post (not a great deal compared with others might i add) & to wish Andy luck later today, i give you Andy's prayer which i did post on his official forum a few years back!

Andy's prayer (revised edition)

Our Andy
Who art from Scotland
Hallowed be thy name
Thy Wimbledon come
Thy will be done in SW19
As it did at flushing meadows

Give us this day a 1st round romp
And forgive our frustrations
As we forgive your 2nd serve

And lead us not to a shock 3rd round defeat
But deliver us from evil-Fed
For thine is the championship
THE POWER & THE GLORY
FOR EVER & EVER

Andymen

I'll get me coat!!!

I imagine Andy won't be that happy about Nadal going out early.  He was probably half-hoping that Nadal and Fed would tire each other out in their Quarters.

The draw has now opend up nicely for Federer. Andy now has the harder run to the Quarters and Semi's. But look what happend to Nadal there could be another upset, although that's less likely with Andy and Roger on this surface. Nole has not prepared for grass either so .............?

If we're honest, Murray has hardly played this year. All in all, it's astonishing that he's world number two and on course for London.
