British number one Andy Murray, who has not won a competition in a year, has slipped to No 9 in the world rankings since beginning his comeback after back surgery but Coach Brad Gilbert believes he will turn his fortunes around in the near future.


Murray has the chance to improve his ranking over the next fortnight here at the US Open but he could face seasoned campaigners all the way through the tournament. He opens with a match against the Dutchman, Robin Haase, who led the Scot by two sets before losing in five in the second round here three years ago, the Independent reported.

Murray will play Haase, Radek Stepanek, Fernando Verdasco and Jo-Wilfried Tsonga before a quarter-final showdown with Novak Djokovic. If Murray were to beat the world No 1 he could then face Stan Wawrinka in the semi-finals and Roger Federer in the final, report said.

However, Murray has not been able to beat a top 10 opponent since his victory over Djokovic in last year's Wimbledon final.

Meanwhile, he has also changed coaches, Amelie Mauresmo having replaced Ivan Lendl, who wanted to spend more time on other interests.
