Novak Djokovic and Andy Murray will batle for world number one spot in 2013, says Barry Cowan

Novak Djokovic was the most consistent tennis player in the world this year - and I would argue that he has improved since his glittering 2011 campaign.

Roger Federer made a valid point when he said, "There is an argument that Rafa was the best player of the year because we don't know how he would have played in the remaining six months." After all Rafa was leading the ATP race until he stopped due to injury. He also went on to say "The draw is potentially a little easier, there's no denying that, because Rafa is a great champion. It's obviously never the same if Rafa doesn't enter the tournament." Who knows where Murray and Djokovic would have been if Nadal had been able to play, unfortunately for us and tennis he wasn't able.

Sound article, Barry. I and many other excited tennis fans are hoping for in a major Janowicz breakthrough in 2013. To see him in the top 10 by year's end would be no bad thing at all, and is certainly within reach if he keeps improving the way he did in Paris. His enthusiasm is infectious and his presence at the top of the game would be very healthy for the sport in general, me thinks.
