Andy Murray dropped out the top 10 after only one week in the elite group.
The young brit lost in the first of Rotterdam last week to a wildcard ranked 84 places before and therfore gained 0 points for this week, last year at the same time he had made it all the way to the semi’s of the ATP event in Memphis and gained 130 points for this. He therefore lost these points which resulted in him dropping from 10 to 12 in the rankings.
Murray is not playing this week and will next play in the Dubai Masters starting on the 3rd March, the same week where he will be also be defending 225 for reaching last year’s semi finals at ATP Masters Series event in Indian Wells.
Murray’s drop in ranking’s is significant for this tournament as it means he will not be seeded, Thomas Berdych the new world 10 will take the eigth and last seeding for the tournament. With a tournament with 8 of th top 10 players attending, it means now that Murray could get a first round draw against NovaK Djokovic, Rafael Nadal or Roger Federer.
