I enclose an image but cannot see it in the preview. It shows the points trend this yr
Nice steady progress by Andy. All top 4 getting much closer in the points spread.
#1 spot could all come down to London.
I said at the start of the year that the top 4 guys could all finish on between 9,000 and 10,000 points.  Won't happen now cos of Rafa but maybe the other 3 could still finish on around 10,000.

Andy is currently down to play Tokyo - if so, Sky better well show it this year.  An enduring memory of 2011 is setting the alarm for 4am and watching a live stream when Andy thrashed Rafa, losing just 4 points in the final set!
They showed it last year did they not?

I have memories of getting up early in the morning to check the score, saw he was a set down (but a break up), fell asleep again, then woke up to see he was 2-0 and 0-40 up in the 3rd. At which point I switched on SkyGo and watched him run riot to a 6-0 win.

Think they showed Beijing instead, unless I missed some extra scheduling of some kind.  Still, the 4am thing was fun given the result against Rafa

Wish Andy had won both Miami and Dubai but he was so focused on the GSs that he couldn't be too bothered giving more than 100%.

Right now, I'd like him to defend Shanghai, Tokyo and if possible, win WTF. That would be really great.

Given what he has done this year so far, as far as I am concerned he can do what he damn well likes. However given the choice, it would be for ND and Fed to fight it out completely knackering themselves, Murray to consolidate his No 3 ranking and above all enjoy himself without destroying himself, and then nip in at the last moment and snaffle the No 2 ranking. Fed to end the year at No 3, with Murray at No 2. He can then go for The No 1 ranking next year, along with another couple of GS's.

Murray will need to aquire around 2200 points more than Fed between now and the end of the year to finish above him. To me that seems unlikely Murray wins Shanghai, Paris and the WTF. But even then, if Federer reaches the semis of those tournaments then he'd probably still be ahead.

I think it's highly unlikely he goes higher in the rankings before the year is out. He would need to win pretty much every tournament between now and November. Let's not put too much pressure on him. #3 will do for now.

Do completely agree, really just want Fed knocked off the number 1 slot, hopefully we can leave ND to sort that out for us and Mr M. Given I think it was one of your posts had me panicking he might slide out of the top 5 at one point, overridingly I just want him to enjoy the rest of the year. I totally agree that he has done more than enough.

It probably was. Prior to Wimbledon there was nothing in it between Andy and Ferrer and he wasn't in the greatest of form. What a run since then! Now he's comfortably ahead of Ferrer and should finish well ahead of Rafa.

Djokovic is actually 1000 points ahead of Federer in the Year-to-date rankings, and with Federer defending 3000 points yet (Djokovic not defending much at all) I think it's only a matter of time before Djokovic returns to #1. The WTF could decide a lot, given Federer is defending 1500 points there, with Andy and Novak defending 0 and 200 respectively.

(Originally posted this in the USO final thread, then decided it's probably more relevant here!)

Just the Majors:

1 Djokovic - 5120 (W, F, F, SF)
2 Murray - 4280 (W, F, SF, QF)
3 Federer - 3800 (W, SF, SF, QF)
4 Nadal - 3245 (W, F, R2, DNP)

Slams + Olympics:

1 Djokovic - 5390 (W, F, F, SF ; 4th)
2 Murray - 5030 (W, F, SF, QF ; W)
3 Federer - 4250 (W, SF, SF, QF ; F)
4 Nadal - 3245 (W, F, R2, DNP ; DNP)

So as we can see, in terms of the big competitions, Murray has actually been second best - better than Federer - and not far behind Djokovic, who has still been the best player in the Slams.

However the other three have all been far more consistent in Masters. It was clear for Murray that Slams were the main, perhaps only focus (besides a gold medal) this year. Hopefully next year he'll be able to be more competitive in the Masters in order to compete for #1, but I don't know how big a goal that is for him or Ivan right now. I imagine Slams will remain the priority over ranking. If he wishes to catch the top two though (and Nadal too, if he is fit all season) he will need to be competitive in the Masters.

Here are the points won from Masters:

(IW, Miami, MC, Madrid, Rome, Toronto, Cinci)

1 Djokovic - 4880 (SF, W, F, QF, F, W, F)
2 Federer - 3765 (W, R3, -, W, SF, -, W)
3 Nadal -  3485 (SF, SF, W, R3, W, -, -)
4 Murray - 1240 (R2, F, QF, -, R3, R3, R3)

I haven't checked the lower ranked players but I would assume that Ferrer and maybe Berdych are ahead of Murray in terms of points won in Masters.

I hope this gives people a good idea of where each players' points lay (the remaining points are from 500 and 250 events).

Thanks TMH. If Andy stays healthy and able to get to 9,000+ points by year end, he will be in a position to push for #1 ranking in Q1 next year.
