    He will become #1 in the world on July 20 once his Indianopolis penalty expires!!

    When this happens, the tennis world will admire the true brilliance of Andy Murray.

    That's a big if. You try having the weight of a nation on your shoulders, in the most prestigious tennis tournament in the history of the sport. It will be no easy feat, especially since most likely he will have to go through alot of tough opponents (Safin, Roddick, Federer) to win it.

    Almost.
    Murray has 9230
    Rafa has 12735

    Rafa loses 2000 points now so he goes down to 10735.
    Murray 'd gain 1500 and end up with 10730.

    Difference between them: 5 points.

    All this will do is add more pressure to Murray now that he has a cakewalk draw to the finals

    I sure hope that if he wins he will have to do it by beating Fed in the final.

    A lot is made of the pressure on Murray, I'm not sure that'll be his biggest problem. I think a hot big hitter (and there are a few of them in his draw) is more of a threat than the pressure. Just my opinion - can't prove it or anything, but I think Murray will thrive on it.

    IF Murray makes semis then I'll be delighted to see him face ARod. I suspect he would feel much the same.

    From Duong mtf:

    As a summary :

    Federer or Murray can be number 1 in july if they win Wimbledon
    ... but Murray would have to wait until the 20th of july or the 27th of july to be number 1

    ... and Murray would lose his number 1 one week later, except if both Federer and Nadal had a complete failure in Wimbledon (Fed not in the semifinal, Nadal not in the quarterfinal).
    If Fed or Nadal reaches the semifinal in Wimbledon, the one of them who will have the best result in Wimbledon will be number 1 on the 3rd of august (if they both lose in the semifinal Nadal will be number 1).
    Apart from Nadal, only Federer can be number 1 on the day after Wimbledon :

    for that he has to win Wimbledon and hope that Nadal doesn't reach the semifinal

    Then on the 20th of july Murray will get his points from the Queens at last, as he will lose his zero-penalty for not taking part in Indianapolis last year (Murray ==> 8730 + 250 = 8980 points):

    then on the 20th of july it's possible that Murray is number 1 : he has to win Wimbledon, and Nadal should not reach the quarterfinals.

    Then on the 27th of july the points in Toronto last year will fall down : so far it would be :

    Nadal 9735 (=10735-1000 ... + Wimbledon+Davis Cup)
    Federer 9210 (=9220-10 ... + Wimbledon)
    Murray 8530 (=8980-450 ... + Wimbledon)
    Djokovic 7630 (=7790-250+90 ... + Wimbledon)

    Then if Federer or Murray wins Wimbledon, he's likely to be number one on the 27th of july.
    to keep his number 1 on the 3rd of august, Murray would have to hope that both Nadal and Federer had a big failure in Wimbledon (Nadal shouldn't reach the quarterfinals, and even lose before the R16 if he wins one match in the Davis Cup, and Federer shouldn't reach the semifinal).
    If Fed or Nadal reaches the semifinal in Wimbledon, the one of them who will have the best result in Wimbledon will be number 1 on the 3rd of august
    Next event would be Montreal (olympic games last year falling down).

    I think this situation is the same as the FO but this time the main focus is on Murray to get his first slam there is still some small pressure on federer to get his 15th but I know that either win or lose federer will have more chances to break the record

    What guarantees Fed number 1 in August if Murray beats him in the final?

    With the King out of Wimbledon, Federer & Murray have a great chance to win it. If Murray takes it, I will pop a bottle of champagne, though alcoholic drinks aren't a favorite of mine! :)

    If Murray wins Wimbledon, it won't count because he won't have played Nadal.

    They drop before the tournament is played because there's no Olympics this year?

    Realistically roddick could beat him, but the favourite would be murray.

    to beat federer at this point in time, roddick probably would need to get a black magic federer voodoo doll or something :)

    I think your asking for too much here if this were hardcourt then yes Murray may be kicking himself if he didn't make it to the final in this kind of situation

    ^ Do you think anyone doubted that?

    Of course, Federer is a pathetic #1.

    Yeah I agree:)

    Murray does thrive under pressure, but could easily face Gonzalez in Quarters and I saw Gonzo on grass this week and he looked in great touch on the grass. Beat Tsonga hitting great topspin BH as well as that mighty FH, and his serve looked awesome!!!

    Yes, the English consider him British, although if he was English rather than Scottish they would consider him English, but I'm half Welsh so don't care either way, I'll be celebrating if he wins:)
