USO final 4-do you think these are the best 4 players right now?

So the final 4 are Nadal, Federer, Djokovic and Murray.

Murray is not #4 yet in the rankings, but this result will certainly help his cause.

I'm not asking if you guys are fans of these 4, but regardless of what the rankings say, do you guys think the final 4 at this year's USO are the best 4 players on tour?

Do you think Murray is better than Ferrer, Davydenko and Roddick? Or not?

Sure those 4 are the best right now, no doubt about it.

Murray is the 4th best player in the rankings. It is official on Monday. He goes from 6th to 4th no matter what happens.

So yes, they are the best 4 players in the world without question.

If we aren't talking about rankings then I think Berrer, Vassalo Arguello, Vanek and Dabul are the 4 best players in the world right now.

oh OK thanks. I didn't know Murray will be #4.


As for some of the sarcastic answers here, whatever. I know sometimes some of us feel the rankings don't always reflect who the best players are. I was only wondering if people thought Murray was better than the other top 10 players not-named Nadal, Federer or Djokovic

Definitely the four best players of the moment. The US Open organizers couldn't have dreamed up a better scenario.

I still think we have the best 3 only and then Murray, unless Murray prove he can win a slam match versus any of the three.

Yes. And I think Murray can win USO.

That's a good point. These are the best 4 players in the world right now, but until Murray proves it against a top player in a slam he will remain a step below the big 3.

I guess Roddick must be the greatest player to ever play the game.

Re: USO final 4-do you think these are the best 4 players right now?

I think both poll answers are sort of right. These are the four best players in the world, who else could you reasonably put there? Roddick? Davydenko? Nalabandian? Wawrinka? Ferrer? Murray, in my mind fits much better with the top three than any ot the other options.

Of course, Murray will need to win the tournament to make it a true 'big four', rather than a 'big three'.

Still, I think this was the best possible weekend result for all neutral fans, as there are four interesting and skilled players, and they have all (except Federer-Murray) had important matches against each other at some point in the season, and there will likely be a compelling storyline for the final no matter who advances.

I hope it'll be an excellent cap to a pretty solid two weeks.

Re: USO final 4-do you think these are the best 4 players right now?

With Murray going to be ranked 4th on Monday I think the questions should be.

1) Can Murray pull away from the chasing pack and make No 4 his own?

2) Can Murray bridge the gap and make it a big 4 rather than big 3?

Having his own quarter will help and I think he will do well in the Masters cup so I think he answer to no 1 is yes and maybe is the answer to No 2.
