    For the fifth consecutive year, Murray will finish the year ranked in the top 4.

    Only Connors, Lendl, McEnroe, Sampras, Federer, Borg, Wilander, Nadal, and Djokovic.

    The notable players who did not achieve it: Agassi, Becker, Edberg, Vilas.

    After 4 years of stalling at #4, congrats, he's up to #3.

    Nevertheless, congrats.

    Numbers 1,2, and 3 are all very close in terms of performance this year. Should be interesting to see how Murray and Nole fare in Paris without Roger. And again, London should be a very interesting battle this year (IMO Rafa was never as big a threat as these three at the O2, surface, indoor, ETC.)

    I hope to see Murray ending the year at #2.

    I'd be perfectly happy with Murray ending at #3

    He's still achieved a lot this year, he's deserving of it. If he doesn't end the year in the top two this year, perhaps he will next year.

    I hope so. I do think that he will reach at least #2 some time next year

    You don't want Fed to finish the year as #2? Isn't he your favorite player?

    No, I don't have favorites. I like all the top four.

    Considering he's had to consistently reach finals and semis of Slams and win many Masters 1000 tournaments to stay in the top 4, it's a great achievement.
    He's joined a great list all, bar him, are multiple slam winners, and three of the names in that list are in his era.
    Is this possibly a sign of things to come for Murray?

    Funny things is, between 2008-2011, he was the only man on tour to win multiple hardcourt MS every year. He aslo won at least 5 titles a year for 3 of those years.

    People will say whatever suits them. Some would rather choke on their own vomit than give Murray even the tiniest bit of credit.
