re: Tennis Discussion Thread

That 3rd set was intense, Murray deserves to be number 2.

If Murray wins Wimbledon then he could get to number 1 if Djokovic fails to win the French, and Murray improves his clay results

Djokovic has like 3500 plus points. He would have to have a shit rest of season adn Murray come and win everything to surpass him. Djokovic is going to be nuber 1 for the whole year.

Good effort from Ferrer. Murray deserves to be No.2.

I would be shocked if Djokovic doesn't stay No.1 for this whole year honestly. Can't see Murray overtake him anytime soon.

Btw, is this the first time Murray has ever been at No.2?

re: Tennis Discussion Thread

It was at the end of 2009 I believe, but it was only for a few weeks.

I can't see Djokovic losing the number one spot this year. He's over 3000 points ahead of anyone else. He's got some points to defend over the clay season, but he didn't get to the Wimbledon final and didn't win the US Open. He does have a few points to defend through Asia and the world tour finals...but I don't think he should lose the number one ranking.

Although Murray doesn't really have a lot of anything to defend through the clay season. He has a Wimbledon final and a US Open title to defend, but otherwise he didn't gain all that much more points last year. So it's possible he could get a fair bit closer, he won't overtake him though.

Marking for: John Morrison, Randy Orton, CM Punk, Sheamus, Dolph Ziggler, Cody Rhodes and Jack Swagger.

I think Ferrer could be a contender for some clay court titles.

re: Tennis Discussion Thread

I think he possibly could be. Although I do still think that the top three (and Nadal) are better than Ferrer, even on clay. I think he'll maybe get to a couple of finals, but I don't see him winning them if he's against one of the top guys.

Marking for: John Morrison, Randy Orton, CM Punk, Sheamus, Dolph Ziggler, Cody Rhodes and Jack Swagger.

re: Tennis Discussion Thread

At this point the psychological aspect of his record in Masters events and not beating the top 4 in Finals must be crippling him. Especially after that Murray Final where he came so close. Big matches are so often just won in the head rather than on the court. It's possible. Right time, right place and who knows. If he gets a run like Miami where he avoids all the top guys until the Final. I'd still heavily back Nadal and Novak against him on Clay and what are the chances of him avoiding both of them during a big tournament.

re: Tennis Discussion Thread

When Ferrer's drawn against Nadal, Novak and even Federer on clay, he might as well not turn up. His H2H against them on all surfaces is awful. He just can't compete with the big boys.
