Murray has no possibility to win a Slam.

Both can happen soon, but I'll go for Murray winning a slam first as I am ever optimistic about his chances however realistically if he makes zero changes to his game come new season, then he won't win a slam.

Del Potro will likely keep on improving and will eventually snatch the no 1 at some point next year or the year after. But Murray first, methinks

Therefore odds are Murray will do it first.

besides, Delpo has an obstacle called grass if he wants the first spot. I'm confident he will get to QF and maybe SF this year at Wimbledon.
Muzza has 2 obstacles - grass and clay.

Also a third one - he is limited to defense only and there will always be at least one in form player in the slams to take him out at one point.

Muzza needs to change dramatically to have chances for a slam tittle and honetly i can't see him doing that in the next 3-4 years.

On the other side Del Pony can win a couple of them this year and jump on top of ATP faster than one would expect.

My vote goes for Pony #1, even though i'm no fan of his, but he's the face of the new generation of champs.

Muzza should be happy to reach the semies anywhere

Del Putto will never be N1.

The most probable thing is that Del Potro will finish in front of Murray. If the Brit will not defend the title in Doha, Del Potro will be nr.4 seeded in AO while Murray will be 5. I don't think that any of them will win a Grand Slam next year, and I see Djokovic the next nr.1. We will see next year.

nothing's shocking because that combined scenario is only possible in the absence of one or all of the top 3 players.......either way, both events are of zero interest to me.......
