Murray blasts ranking system over having to beat top tennis stars for Wimbledon winLondon: World no.2 Andy Murray is dissatisfied over the possibility that he might need to defeat Rafa Nadal, Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic in order to win the Wimbledon next month as his injury lay-off may otherwise rank him World no. 5 despite his triumph at the French Open.

The Spanish star Nadal had slipped down to the fifth position in the world rankings behind David Ferrer whom he had defeated in straight sets in the Paris final only because he missed seven months due to a knee injury after losing in the second round at Wimbledon last year.

Murray lamented that the ranking system in tennis depends on the player`s consistency; if a player misses four or five months, it becomes very difficult for the player to sustain his position.

Murray also said that Nadal will face a tough time at the fifth position as he is better than being the world no. 5, adding that Djokovic is the top favourite with the bookies, with him, Nadal and Federer following Djokovic.
