Andy Murray Wins Wimbledon; Is No. 1 Ranking in Men’s Tennis Next?
It’s hard to find anyone in the sport of tennis who has had a better calendar year than Andy Murray. Over the last 365 days the Scotland native has reeled in a gold medal, his first major victory and a Wimbledon title. With all of this success coming in such a short period of time, the question is this: When will Murray finally be rewarded with the No. 1 ranking in Men’s tennis?
Breaking records has become a hobby of sorts for Murray: the 26-year-old became the first British tennis player in 77 years to win the Wimbledon Championships. Men’s tennis is extremely strong right now with a power quartet of Novak Djokovic, Murray, Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer all playing at a high level. By dethroning Djokovic on Sunday, the immediate speculation is whether or not Murray deserve to be proclaimed as the best men’s tennis player in the world.
In my mind, that talk is rather premature.
However, the fact that we are even hinting at the No. 1 ranking changing hands should say something about how wide open the world of Men’s tennis really is. Keep in mind that the four aforementioned stars are all under the age of 31 — Djokovic and Murray are both 26 and are separated by just a week. Something tells me that these two will be competing for at least another 15 years, so you better get used to the Serbian-British rivalry.
