Andy Murray has been playing quite a lot of late. There has been hardly a week in the last couple of months in which he has remained out of action.
The Scot is actually looking to get to top 4 in the World rankings so that during the 2015 season, he manages to get easy draw in Grand Slams and other major competitions.
Murray is not too far away from getting there. He is already at the 5th position and if he does well in the Masters tournament in Paris that is coming up shortly, not only would he be able to climb further up in the rankings, he would also make it to the World Tour Finals.
However, according to Murray, if he qualifies for the finals, it’s good, but, it’s not his priority. His priority is to get as high in the rankings as possible before the season gets over.
Speaking to the reporters yesterday, the 27-year old said, “The last two months have been pretty tough on the body, but, having won a number of games out of which some were extremely close ones, I am feeling pretty confident.”
When asked about his chances of getting to the tour finals, Murray said, “Well, everybody wants to participate in it and so am I. It’s such a high level tournament, but, my main ambition at the moment is to get to 4 somehow because if I do that, I am surely going to get facilitated in terms of seeding next year.”
Murray’s opening encounter in the upcoming BNP Paribas Masters will be versus Julien Benneteau tomorrow.
That will be a second round match. Murray has cleared the first round through a bye. Benneteau, on the other hand, had to beat Lu Yen-hsun of Taiwan to progress ahead.
