Following his second Wimbledon title Sunday, Andy Murray has moved within 815 ranking points of 2016 leader Novak Djokovic. Djokovic’s stunning loss in the third round to Sam Querrey left the door open for Murray who had lost to Novak in the first two Grand Slams this year.
The Scot took advantage of the Serb’s slip-up and now heading into the summer stands just 815 points behind Djokovic. That’s a Masters Series title! And questions linger what events Djokovic will even play this summer. Will he play Canada or Cincinnati where he has never won? Or even Rio which doesn’t offer points. Nothing has been confirmed from Novak.
And will Murray now make a push for the overall 52-week No. 1 ranking, something he’s never achieved?
Regardless, if both players continue to play well, it’s conceivable the No. 1 race will be up for grabs during the last month of the season.
