And will also guarantee 4th seeding for the AO - by 5 ranking points. Here's why: Murray is currently 645 points ahead of JMDP. A JMDP win tonight takes that gap down to 245 points. Murray drops 250 Doha points on 11th Jan. Murray isn't playing a ranking tournament before the AO so he can't recover any of the 250 Doha points. JMDP doesn't drop any ranking points before the AO. Therefore, if JMDP wins tonight he will guarantee to be world number 4 on January 11th; the ranking date used for AO seedings. That one game has cost Murray a lot more than just a place in the WTF semi finals.
