Who is defending what on clay?

Monte Carlo Masters* (12-19 April)

Points to defend: Nadal 1,000, Federer 700, Djokovic 450, Murray 150.

Rome Masters (27 April-3 May)

Points to defend: Nadal 10, Federer 250, Djokovic 1,000, Murray 70.

Madrid Masters (10-17 May)

Points to defend: Nadal 1,000, Federer 700, Djokovic 450, Murray 150.

French Open (24 May-7 June)

Points to defend: Nadal 2,000, Federer 1,400, Djokovic 900, Murray 150.

Total: Nadal 4,010, Federer 3,050, Djokovic 2,800, Murray 520.

The numbers speak for themselves. If Murray - who goes into the clay season 170 points behind Djoko and 2,180 behind Roger - can get to grips with the dirt he has a massive opportunity to move up in the rankings.

* Monte Carlo is not a mandatory tournament so players do not have to include results in points total for their ranking.

Holy Shit!! That is a lot of erm, ground to cover for the big four. I've no doubt that Rafa can work his way through it but the rest of them (and I'm loathe to include my darling Roger but sorry, he's in the mix too) need to be on the lookout for the likes of Gilles Simon, Verdasco et al.

Thanks for that stat, Steve.

Thanks for sharing these stats. Murray definitely has a great chance to overtake Djokovic during the claycourt season with only a few points to defend..
