"A nagging wrist injury has forced World No. 3 Andy Murray to withdraw from the Shanghai ATP Masters 1000 Presented by Rolex. The 22 year old has been sidelined since aggravating a wrist injury during Great Britain's Davis Cup tie against Poland last month.

Murray withdrew from the tournament following a medical review on Wednesday. “I apologise for the inconvenience that my withdrawal may cause but I trust you understand, the situation is beyond my control and I would much rather participate in the tournament than be in the current position regarding my health,” said Murray, who has been told to rest for two or three weeks."

So this is Novak's chance to regain the #3 spot. Murray will drop 1000 points and Novak only defends 150. If he reaches the QFs, he'll be just 30 points away from his old #3 position (if we don't consider the Bejing open that's being played this week)
