Ferrer also has a pretty decent record with Murray.
Murray is currently ranked #2 in the World. Of course he is part of the top 4, and not inferior to the rest other than possibly Djokovic. Anyone is not part of the top 4 based on current ability it is Federer. Nadal may be ranked behind, but it is already clear he is Djokovics biggest rival at the top of the game still, while Murray is up there too. Federer is something like 9th in the race points for the year and has already gone from #1 to #3 in the last 4 months. The bookies have him as only 4th favorite for the upcoming slams.
