Andy Murray’s time in the top 4

by thriding

Murray reached the top 4 in Sep 2008. He is still number four, but sometimes has been no.3, four times has slipped to no.5, and once briefly reached no.2

  • 08 Sep ’08 – No.4 for 32 weeks
  • 11 May ’09 – No.3 for 12 weeks
  • 17 Aug ’09 – No.2 for 3 weeks
  • 14 Sep ’09 – No.3 for 5 weeks
  • 19 Oct ’09 – No.4 for 12 weeks
  • 11 Jan ’10 – No.5 for 1 week (Del Potro no.4)
  • 18 Jan ’10 – No.4 for 1 week
  • 01 Feb ’10 – No.3 for 2 weeks
  • 15 Feb ’10 – No.4 for 4 weeks
  • 22 Mar ’10 – No.3 for 1 week
  • 05 Apr ’10 – No.4 for 2 weeks
  • 19 Apr ’10 – No.5 for 2 weeks (Del Potro no.4)
  • 03 May ’10 – No.4 for 26 weeks
  • 15 Nov ’10 – No.5 for 2 weeks (Soderling no.4)
  • 29 Nov ’10 – No.4 for 6 weeks
  • 10 Jan ’11 – No.5 for 9 weeks (Soderling no.4)
  • 04 Apr ’11 – No.4 for 25 weeks
  • 17 Oct ’11 – No.3 for 6 weeks
  • 28 Nov ’11 – No.4 for 29 weeks

The periods away from No.4 are so short as to be scarcely worth analysing. His arrival there in Sep ’08 was with the points he gained by reaching the US Open final. A month prior to that he won the Cincinnati Masters while ranked no.9

His week at No.5 in Jan ’10 coincided with the Australian Open draw: to reach the final that year he had to beat Nadal in the QFs (and Cilic in the SFs) Del Potro’s 3 weeks at No.4 were with points from his 2009 US Open title.

His 11 weeks at No.5 after Nov 2010 were just after Soderling won the Paris Masters and had still points from his 2nd appearance in a French Open final.

    In total 181 weeks have past since Murray reached the top 4:

    • 3 weeks at No.2 (2%)
    • 26 weeks at No.3 (14%)
    • 138 weeks at No.4 (76%)
    • 14 weeks at No.5 (8%)
