So far only players who were ranked 1st at some point in their career won it.
Great achievement. He will get a nice bonus depending on his result in the US Open:
His results are:
Indianapolis - F (45 points)
Los Angeles - W (70 points)
Washington - R3
Montréal - R1
Cincinnati - R3 (15 points)
New Haven - F (45 points)
Total - 175 points. This is a new record for men (although there are more points this year for the smaller events and Hewitt would have 225 points in the current system in 2004).
A quarter final in New Haven was enough, because Murray has 145 points, and less matches won.
