After winning the title in Shanghai, Andy Murray is getting closer and closer to Novak Djokovic in the ATP rankings, and he knows he has a shot at becoming the new world no.1 very soon.

Even if Djokovic is almost 2500 points ahead of Andy in the “regular rankings”, the Serbian needs to defend many points in the next few months since last year he won Paris and the World Tour Finals in London. The world no.1 will have even more points to defend in the first part of the following season as he in 2016 he has won Doha (250pts), the Australian Open (2000pts), Indian Wells and Miami (both 1000pts).




 

I can be world no.1 in Spring 2017. MURRAY

Andy thinks he can get to the top of the rankings during next spring if he can keep on playing as he has been doing in the last few months. The Brit commented

“For sure, I have a chance. I’m just aware how difficult it is going to be. I have never had success like I have had in the last few months of my career so to keep that going, I need to keep myself motivated and be smart with my time off.

But I believe I can get there. These last few months have proved that to me. I may never get another chance to be No 1. I think Spring is the most realistic because I think Novak is going to win a lot of matches between now and the end of the year.”

How Murray can be world no.1 already in 2016

If you take a close look at the ATP rankings (year to date), Andy is less than 1000pts shy from Djokovic. If the Brit wins the next ATP500 in Vienna, he will have less than 500pts than Nole; in that case, if he outperforms the Serbian in Paris and London he can definitely usurp his throne. 

Game on!

No doubts he will be world no.1 this coming spring. I also think he can make it before especially if he wins the title in Vienna

I think he has a great shot at being no.1 already in 2016 especially if Djokovic doesn`t recover and Andy doesn`t lose his momentum. I think it;s also fair given his incredible career
