Murray's Ranking

Quote

I posted this elsewhere , but this is what Ferrer said on Sunday - "I work to improve my game. I don’t work to be in the Top 4. I work to be a better player and nothing else. I think the Top 4 are amazing players, and they are better than everyone else at this moment. I don’t think about the Top 4, I think about me and the Top 10".

He could pick up quite a lot more points at Toronto, Cincinnati and the US Open though, while Andy has more to defend.

Ferrer has a pretty good attitude, so I imagine he does just play these tournaments for the love of it/to improve rather than for money and ranking points. Ferrer's 30 and playing some of the best tennis of his life, that's not going to last forever so if I were him I'd like to think I'd have the same attitude. He can rest when he's retired.

^^ yes, good attitude  - but probably with all Nadal's success, as Spain's no 2 Ferrer has also not been under as much pressure as some....

Is Andy likely to play the Olympics, Toronto and Cincinatti before the US Open? To me thats too much for Andy. I think Joker or Nadal could do it and expect to win the USO but not Andy. Id like to see him miss Toronto. #
Bottom line. The US Open is all that matter. The others are just a distraction. We need our boy in tip-top shape for the Big One. The one where he wins his first Slam.

I said on another thread that as much as I want to see Andy come to Toronto (for purely selfish reasons Smile ) I'd gladly sacrifice my ticket if it means so much for him to do well at the Olympics and USO. (USO is a no-brainer of course.)
I read somewhere tho' that Lendl will be at Toronto, so I guess that's a lock-in.
He did not do well in Canada last year. I don't even want to remember that Anderson match in Montreal last year. Too painful!
But the good thing is he has few points to defend, so I'm expecting him to use our tournie as a warm-up exercise.
Same with Cincy.

Great article here comparing Roger, Rafa, Joker and Andy
http://www.ibtimes.com/sportsnet/tennis/federer-nadal-djokovic-murray-statistical-comparison-top_465.htm

...Andy Murray, once removed from both the hype and the disdain that surrounds him in equal measure from a slavering British media, is a genuinely phenomenal tennis player. In an era of overhyped diva superstars, he is a down to earth, teetotal, focused and motivated winner who suffers unduly from a public's desire for all their sportsmen to be media savvy celebrities. Despite not having won a Grand Slam, he has reached 4 finals; before being beaten by Roger Federer & Novak Djokovic, and must be regarded as the greatest player in the history of tennis never to have won a major title....

The top 4 (taking off Canada Masters points)

1. Federer = 11345
2. Djokovic = 10270
3. Nadal = 8895
4. Murray   = 8200

So if Andy wins Toronto then he'll be 305 points ahead of Nadal (since Rafa's pulled out) and move to number 3.

He would have lost them in 2009; they only last a year.

It's a good move to play Toronto, then. He's the only one of the (newly reinstated) Big Four scheduled to play it.

No mention of Djoko withdrawing on the official site - they've got a news item for both Nadal and Fraudy withdrawing.
