Murray's Ranking

Quote

Andy just arrived at the Intercontinental Hotel, Park Lane. Looking great, if you could see him between the flashing lights!  Kim looked gorgeous too. Very Happy

Over 20 million people watched the final on TV today in the UK. Then what about the rest of the world?  Many more Smile

It helps a lot for keeping Ferrer off his back, they are now even in points for the US Open race and let's face it Andy should hopefully be better on hard-courts.
That would be a joke now if Ferrer overtook him.

A billion, I believe.

Andy has a big chance of getting to No1 next year. Becker was suggesting on Beeb that this could be his next goal.

Not sure where to post this as it's not an official ranking but Murray has risen to 5 in the reliability zone all time grass performance:

I've always said that Ashley Cooper was the best grass court player Smile

  Andy has said today  he's a long way from No1 and not thinking about it. Hes concentrating on winning matches

  I somehow don't feel comfortable with Andy as number 1  .... it feels weird.

The number one spot isn't really important to me either. Rankings change so often. I'm sure he'll get it at some point but I'd rather see him win a few slams down the line without any pressure to catch up to Djokovic.

A relaxed Andy is a better Andy. Smile

I feel the same! I do hope he'll get there at some point, but only because he once said that was his ambition.....so I hope it happens for him! As for myself, I'm more than happy with what he's given us already......so anything else is a bonus!

I feel sure Andy will reach no.1 at some point, maybe even by the end of the year. To my mind there is nothing about it to feel uncomfortable about. If he gets there, when he gets there, it will be because he has produced the results, produced the level of play he needs. That's a good thing for him, nothing to be scared of.

Where I think Andy will do well, and I have said this before, is in not focusing on the ranking, but his results. I don't think Andy will run around like a loon playing every tournament in sight to make the points up. I suspect, and firmly believe, he will aim to do well in the tournaments he does play, which seems the right way to go about it to me.

I do think it is one of the things Andy would like to do, as I'm sure all the best players would. However, I am more pleased that his focus seems predominantly on being the best he can be, getting the results. If he does that the rest will look after itself.

Murray is actually only 1100 points behind Djokovic in the race now. Djokovic really struggled to gain much of an advantage in the clay season, particularly after winning Monte Carlo. Nadal a further 800 points ahead. Which isn't much, given winning a Slam will instantly catch that up. Nadal really needs to win the USO and/or one of the upcoming Masters to be in #1 contention. He has a bit of a cushion to Murray though.

I'm not too sure that being no.1 is going to be Andy's main goal still, just the reaction I got from the interviews he's had. If it was he might consider vulturing the 250's and practising in spells on clay all year round (I wonder if he might consider doing this also if he wins the AO).

Andy's priority will surely be to retain USO Open but he'll want to well in either Montreal or Cincy - near impossible to do  both as they're back to back.  He has almost no points to defend in these 2 Masters events.

It was also his ambition to win a Slam and to win Wimbledon, and he's finally achieved that, but I get the impression he isn't in a rush to get to No.1.  Particularly now that he's got a back problem I don't see him playing more tournaments than he did this year - in fact, since clay aggravates it, it does raise a question about future clay-court tournaments.  I can't see the virtue in exacerbating the problem by trying to be a success on a surface he isn't very good on anyway.  MC isn't obligatory, so he could always give that a miss, although I'm not sure he would want to skip RG again unless he absolutely had to.

I did wonder if he might try that too.  If his back is OK to start with, it might be a good idea to get a bit of match practice before the main clay season, which could mean he doesn't need to do such intensive practice prior to the main clay season.
