As the dust settles on an absorbing men’s championship at Wimbledon, it’s time to look forward to the summer season by asking some burning questions as we head into the North American leg of the ATP Tour.
Can Andy Murray challenge Novak Djokovic’s number one ranking?
After ending a 77-year wait for a British champion at Wimbledon, Murray’s next target must surely be to become world number one. While Djokovic is deservedly at the top of the rankings for his sheer consistency since 2011, Murray currently holds two out of the four grand slams.
Even before Murray won his first grand slam, the summer has always been the favourite part of his season. He made his first grand slam final appearance at Flushing Meadows, and of course captured his maiden major by winning the US Open last year. In addition he has won both the Canadian Masters and Cincinnati Masters twice in the last four years.
If Murray can win one of the Masters Series tournaments this summer in addition to a strong run defending the US Open, he can certainly close the gap to Djokovic at the summit of the men’s game.
