It’s in your eyes. How Murray is pushing the burnt Djokovic to the top one

In this season, he has won 65 matches, won six titles, and has reached the finals ten times. Defended Olympic gold. In the Chinese “double” – the triumphs in Beijing and Shanghai – he did not lose a set, totally dominated 23 sets in a row.

Last year at the beginning of the year, you would have assigned such dominant statistics to Djokovic. But it belongs to Murray. Twenty-five-year-old Serb is still formally number one, but the best tennis is currently being played by his Scottish peer.

“I’m experiencing the best of my career.I have not had so many successes, I’m afraid it will be hard to keep, “said Murray, who is gradually pulling Djokovic’s lead first in the ATP. “Maybe I will never have a chance to become a world leader so I will try to play as best as I can.” Murray is about to attack Djokovic’s position in 2017, but there are several options, how to get to the tennis throne by the end of this year.

So, if he won a “five-star” tournament in Vienna and a subsequent Masters series in Paris, and Djokovic would not make a comeback in the French capital, a British player will be crowned at the beginning of November. >

“Andy’s in his eyes,” Roberto Bautista Agut, the last victim of Murray’s form, noticed. The Spaniard can compare, in the Shanghai Semifinals, seeing Djokovic’s anger, destroying the missile, tearing his shirt, arguing with the referee’s referee.And he surprised him.

“I feel burnt. I need to relax, “said a Serbian tennis player. Returning to the courts did not work out of it after a “change of mind”. Djokovic has a psychological pressure, maybe he has not got rid of personal problems, even when he was not able to relax while he was in tennis.

“But he still wins some matches, he is still the best player in the world, he is doing well in the lobby,” says rival Murray .

It sounds like its traditional diplomatic expression. World renowned collaborator with Ivan Lendel has helped to improve his performance in important game activities. Mental is much stronger.With the inquisitive television camera, the public could look into the secrets of their cooperation – Murray read directly from the coach’s notebook. “Concentrate. Be quiet and breathe mainly, “was written on a paper, among other things.

Murray’s favor is also played by a narrower tennis tip. Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer have fallen out of the top four due to injuries, Stan Wawrinka also has health problems, and he will be 32 years old. Juan Martín del Potro is trying to come back with his wrists several times.

There is no one in the promising generation around Raonice, Dimitrova or Nišikori (except in the form of Marina Čileč) who won the grandslam champion and they also age.The youngsters of Thiem, Zverev, Kyrgios or Chorič need time.

Commentators call Murray as the best athlete of the UK. In London at the Champions’ Tournament, he could confirm his dominion. Or would he “swap his face” with Djokovic and rule the Serb?
