Murray beats Federer (top left) for the second time in 2008 in the Madrid semis, and sees off Gilles Simon (bottom left) in the final to seal back-to-back Masters titles.

He then heads to St Petersburg and successfully defends that crown (top right), but a 14-match winning streak ends against David Nalbandian in Paris (bottom right).

Federer: "I always knew from the first moment I saw him play in Bangkok [three years ago] that he'd be in the top 10 pretty soon, provided he didn't screw things up. I think first he had to grow up a little bit, become a man. He's taken that step well."

October 31st ranking - 4
