The tennis world is witnessing a fast changing Top 4s positions these days.
With Rafael Nadal almost quitting the battle field due to his knees, which are like someone twice his age, and taking a back stage position, the Top 4 positions are about to witness a change.
Tennis Top 4: Murray and Djokovic to be Nos 1 & 2, while Federer and Nadal seem on their way out
Although still no.1, the Swiss Roger Federer, who is 31 by now, has started to show the aging signs. Losing to Andy Murray in Olympics and then exiting from the recent US Open, it seems his future rests not in Grand Slams but in smaller competitions.
The Serbian Novak Djokovic, who is still filled with adequate charge in his body, has not been able to win any Grand Slam other than the Australian Open earlier this year. He tried to defend his US Open title forcefully this year, but finally gave way to the charging and seemingly younger Andy Murray in a long and arduous five sets match.
And the Andy Murray !!
The Olympic Gold medalist brought to his country the first Grand Slam victory in 73 years by winning the US Open 2012. He has energy and power, stamina and resoluteness. The reexamining players beyond no.4 ranking do not seem to leave much impression in the presence of Murray. However, with Roger Federer almost fading out and Djokovic still holding on for another couple of years, the matrix is about to witness a change.
Am I seeing Andy Murray as no.1 within one year from now?
