Murray's reign at number 1 comes to an end after 41 weeks

Post here to celebrate this period which had Murray leading the ATP rankings through August 21, 2017. It seemed to me like it was one of the periods with most change during the last 15 years. Murray totally deserved his top spot, no matter what most people with recency-memory-only say now.

Re: Murray's reign at number 1 comes to an end after 41 weeks

i'm good with this(when he became no 1 i thought that he will reach 20-30), he has to recover and focus slams now, no need to play every event like last year.he probably won't finish top 10 this year(unless his injury will heal) but i bellive that he can have a comback year next(not like 2016 but atleast a masters and some slams semis)

All Murray's fans knew it was going to happen. But I'm glad it lasted as long as it did especially with Andy having injury problems. I just hope there is some good news coming about his hip.

I have a, shall we say, morbid personality.

I may be able to be #1 again and smack that ass

Are you using "live" rankings? Because the ATP site still shows Murray as number 1 @Slasher1985

Yeah, Murray's last week is this one, starting August 14, which the ATP site shows. I said in the OP that his reign is through August 21. Murray will lose the ranking this upcoming Monday.

Still Murray, but from next week, the new world number 1 will be either Nadal or Roger, probably the former.

Either Federer or Nadal once this week ends, depending on what happens in Cincinnati.

For Federer to have a shot at number 1, he needs Cincinnati SF. But if Nadal reaches the R16, Federer needs a F. And if Nadal reaches the SF, Federer needs to win Cincinnati to be #1.

It is a great achievement for Andy. He's definitely not up there with Novak, Rafa & Federer but he was comitted enough to his sport to wait for his turn, he never lost focus or motivation. Then he totally deserves it. I'm just a bit disappointed he never played well as a no.1. Reaching the top spot was like the end of the journey for him.
