He might be, but Murray is basically going to have to win a major to do it. Federer has a big 1500 point edge on him as a result of the Barclay's last year which will be hard for Murray to overcome unless he wins a major, or at least makes 2-3 finals
Yea, it's gonna be close, i just feel that over a year Murray will get more points for starters and Federer's game will at long last be more exploitable to more players outside the top four. I think Murray will have a more consistent season this year than last and if not for injury at the ATP Finals he may well have taken the number 3 spot. I see Lendl as being a very positive addition to team Murray..at last someone who won't take his moaning, complaining (typically Scottish) shite.
Can we maybe rename this thread so it serves as a catch all Tennis thread for 2012. I know we always have a thread for the4 slams but Tennis is such an interesting sport these days be nice to keep some sort of thread going all season.
