World number three Andy Murray returns to match play this weekend at Indian Wells. He could take over the number two spot in the ATP rankings by reaching the finals. But there’s a catch.

Indeed, Murray has won eight best-of-three Masters 1000 events with draws just as difficult as he faces at Slams, but has won just one paltry set in his four Grand Slam finals.
But at the…
