    Del Potro and Cilic could be up there, but the next year should tell the story.

    Then there will be new youngsters on the rise.

    bumping my old Djokovic posts.

    Since you posted this four years ago, I don't think he's been ranked higher than third.

    del Potro was never ranked higher than fourth.

    Murray was number 2 (behind Federer) in August 2009. He was 22 years old at the time.

    Djoko had 5 of his 6 slams while Andy was getting 2. Rafa had 4 of his 13 slams during that time

    Looks like it may never happen for Andy.

    I'm not too upset about it tbh, winning slams is way more important than being #1. The whole concept of being #1 was kinda ruined when we had a succession of losers being #1 in the WTA 3-5 years ago. I guess it still somewhat has prestige in the mens' game but I'd rather win 1 slam and be #3 for the year than make 3 slam finals and win 3 Masters 1000 and be #1 for the year (random example).

    It wasn't whether Murray will win a grand slam. I thought that was pretty obvious, and I said he would.

    It was whether he'd be number 1. Much more difficult than winning a grand slam.

    I'd probably rather win the GS, but the truth is it's more difficult to maintain excellence over a year (consistently reaching semis), than it is to win one GS tournament.


    Before Federer/Nadal/Djokovic took over, you had several guys win a major without ever being number 1, and recently we've had del Potro and Murray.

    I somewhat agree but seeing Wozniacki be world number 1 for basically 2 years reaching 1 grand slam semi and 0 finals in those 2 years completely discredited the whole concept of being #1 for me (and people like Federer and Serena would agree with me). Not to mention all the other series of losers we had as #1s (Ivanovic, Jankovic...) Now I understand that's the WTA and only big time guys have been #1 in the ATP in recent memory but still, to me the rankings are pretty much just what determines who gets easier draws in slams.

    Yeah and he's still only 27 so I guess he has time.

    Tsonga has become such a joke it's sad. Him and Berdych are the 2 biggest jokes on tour as of now.
