Apparently, Djokovic is guaranteed to stay at #1 till November and overtake both Nadal (102 weeks) and Borg (109 weeks) records at total weeks as #1 becoming #6 player in the Open era. amazing stuff because this record is very important when we judge someone's greatness.

1. Federer 302
2. Sampras 286
3. Lendl 270
4. Connors 268
5. McEnroe 170
6. Djokovic 110

Now, regarding Murray ... I think Nadal is the only one who can over take #2, but Rafa traditionally doesn't play that great during the second part of the season plus Murray is a better HC player IMO. Murray needs to play very well in Canada, Cinci and the USO.

Lit is really good with stats and different scenarios.

Nadal is obviously a big danger for Murray's 2nd. Murray has 1700 points more at present, will be 2500 if he wins the final. If not, it will be 950 when his OG points come off. Nadal won't have to do spectacular results then to pass Murray after USO. 1000 points for Montreal, Cincinnatti and USO will be enough if Murray copies his results from last year. Will he manage that? He has done in the past. Question is if his HC form is more 2010 (good), 2011 (so-so) or 2012 (nonexistent). Difficult to tell atm.

it will move around a bit but these two are the top 2 players and will remain so for the next couple years. Rafa could overtake Murray easily since one is defending the UO W and Olympics while the other has zero. Novak will be year end #1 but Rafa could get back to #1 after AO although I would not bet on it.
