Well, goes to show that Murray really shouldn't have dicked around in Montreal / Cincy. Berdych - Djokovic - Nadal or Robredo - Ferrer - Nadal. Which would you prefer?
Good chance Murray ends the year #5 now.
Don't really care if he does. Given there are 3 or 4 possible dopers in that lot, I think I the rankings are meaningless at the moment.
Murray has reached No 2 fair and square, if he never reaches No 1 so be it.
Personally I would rather have Murray at whatever ranking with the Olympic Gold Medal, Last years US Open, and this year's Wimbledon, on his record, than No 1 but have achieved it by playing endless little tournaments to accrue points.
When their careers are finished, assuming neither of them wins anything else, who will be deemed to have been the most successful Murray or Ferrer?
I will stick with Murray. Just my opinion.
