Murray's Ranking

He has to bloody win Memphis to get only get #11, it sounds like such a small movement on the surface but really it's just 1 away from top10 !! Smile

He has to win Memphis and Haas and Berdych both have to flame out in the first two rounds.  For whatever reason, the top 10 seems to be delinated right around the 2,000 point mark. So, when Andy joins the 2,000 point club, he will probably be right around the top 10.  He still has a way to go to get there.  I would guess that it will happen in April or May. 

edit:

May would be a very conservative estimate.  April is more likely.  March is possible, if he tears it up in Memphis, Indian Wells, and Miami, i.e. exceeds his seeding in all three tournaments.

I believe that he will definitely exceed his seeding in Indian Wells and Miami, since he's so good on hardcourts and makes beating Andy Roddick look easy...

Big hopes for IW and Miami. Just a QF would be enough here really which I'm sure he can manage. He must be so pumped after this week. (Pumped? I think i've been reading too many of Brad's blogs!)

Berdych lost in the first round at Rotterdam.  Andy is guaranteed at least #12 if he wins Memphis.  Berdych will stay at 1785 points next week.  If Andy reaches the semi he will have 1700. Reaching the final gives him 1765.  Winning the final gives him 1840.  So, here is a good opportunity to close the gap on Berdych if not pass him.

If Andy wins Memphis he is sure to get 12. But could get #11 if thigns go his way.

^ Things going his way in this case means him winning, and Haas going out before semis.

Any less than a win, and he won't get past Berdych (as American Twist explains above) plus Ferrer could overtake if he gets one win further than Andy.

Ferrer advanced to the QF today.  Djokovic plays in about an hour.

edit: Djiokovic won, so he is in the QF, too.

Fat Dave (Nalbandian) has just lost his second RR match 4-6, 4-6 to Canas so won't progress to the quarter finals this week. Andy can't catch him yet, but this will help him close the gap.

If he bombs at Indian Wells, Andy might be able to pass him that soon.

I just want to see his points keep rising each week - even if he only makes the semis or final he will be at 1700+. If they keep increasing each week it's only a matter of time before he passes these guys - he's better than they are. These 2 impending masters series events are gonna be the making of him - he'll be top ten after Miami.

^ he needs about 350 points for top 10. That will be about 375 after Miami, as he will loose the Miami (5) and Indy (20) ones. So that means he needs

- a win
- a final & R32
- 2 semi-finals.

That is tough. I know he's good, and will get in the top 10 before wimbledon, but I wouldn't put any money on it being after Miami.

P.S. All this assumes that Nalbandian, Ancic and Haas don't improve too much so that the top 10 spot doesn't move much.

Are you forgetting the points he might pick up here in Memphis - if he makes the final  he only needs around 250 for the 10th spot...

true, but others will probably also gain points, so I still think it's a tall order. For Miami. For Late April I'm very confident.
