Murray is playing very well

I notice his fitness has improved. He has done a lot of fitness work with Gilbert in the offseason. He looks slightly bulkier. Can withstand continuous rallies more. I expect a top 8 finish by the end of 2007, and top 5 during 2008. Federer, Roddick(clearly the 2nd best player after just beating Federer), Blake(consistently making finals) Murray and Ljubicic are currently the 5 best players in the world at the moment. They are the ones to beat. Nadal is injured and a lot of other players are injured/not in peak form. Djokovic could make top 10 this year as well, i notice he has improved and has won a title in Adelaide.

My TOP TEN (based on current form /fitness NOT ranking points)

1. Federer

2. Roddick

3. Blake

4. Ljubicic

5. Murray

6. Djokovic

7. Carlos Moya

8. Xavier Mallisse

9. Marcos Baghdatis

10. Marat Safin

Bit of a silly thread. How can you rank players based on 'form' when half of the big names havent even played a competitive match yet?

Re: Murray is playing very well

I agree with Allstar, it's a bit too early
However, I think Murray and Djoko will crack into Top 10, while Richie won't

Murray's target should be top 5, he will easily make the top 10. I am 100% sure of that, there is no way he won't make top 10 if he stays fit.

Re: Murray is playing very well

Murray and "very well" can't be in the same sentence. That's the same as "Stevie Wonder" and "sharpshooter".

Re: Murray is playing very well

Mallisse no.8??

Hes wayy too inconsistant to be that far in the rankings.

I cannot stand Djokovic
NEW YORK METS

I'm an American who loves clay tennis and the clay season...what is wrong with that picture?

Re: Murray is playing very well

He was playing well in this tournament, especially against Safin. I don't like him a lot, but he's not doing too bad.
