Will Murray reach top 3 in 2013?

If he can show some improvement during the clay season next year, do you think he will have a shot?

I think age will catch up to Roger sooner or later. he's having a phenominal 2012 BUT all great things eventually come to an end. his body will catch up to him and if he were to win the Olympics then it would mean he had won every meaningful event in tennis- his inspiration will be slightly gone. I think he will play on a few seasons for fun and maybe win big events here or there but physically obviously he is close to serious decline and mentally he probably will care a bit less.

Murray looks to be getting back to where he needs to be with his game so I think he will take Roger's spot. of course things are so unpredictable sometimes, so who knows. I would say they switch though

<3 Roger Federer <3 David Ferrer <3 Juan Martin Del Potro <3 Ernest Gulbis <3

Re: Will Murray reach top 3 in 2013?

He's already been number 2 in the world, and the players getting older and older only makes it easier. So yes he will make it, and it'll be either Fed or Nadal to be bumped to #4. It really depends on Nadal's injury(ies)

Re: Will Murray reach top 3 in 2013?

I think, with djokovic going back to 2010 levels (somewhat higher) snd Murray getting loads of confidence, he will soon be no. 3, with djokovic bumped out.
It will really depend on how the HC and indoor season pans out.

Re: Will Murray reach top 3 in 2013?

I assume you mean will he finish 2013 in the top 3? Because he has a good chance of being top three this year, for a while at least.

If he can win USO or WTF he probably will, otherwise it will be tough given his defending points from September onwards.

WTF? That is 1500 points at best. He is currently 2995 points behind Nadal in the Race so he will need more. If the Spaniard comes back for Cincinnatti I don't see Murray advancing this year. Should have a good chance in 2013, though.

Nadal will make a comeback at Cincy. I actually think Nadal could win the USO this year.

I am afraid that Roger is a psycho with a hidden sadistic streak and that he just thoroughly enjoys kicking ass and will never change. Tough luck Nadal, Djokovic, Murray, et al.

Pushray at #3 will be a huge fiasco for the sport.

Re: Will Murray reach top 3 in 2013?

I guess it`ll be new rebellion next year. Roger is amazing, but noone can deceive his own body and motivation ever. Really think that finally we get to that time - Fedal once and for all will give up their position in the rankings. Djokovic, Murray and Del Potro will fight for #1 next year in the first place.

Gasquet is next №1
