While he may seem to have dropped from sight after losing the Australian Open final almost a month ago, Andy Murray remains in the thick of the ATP elite even if the Scot has opted out of all play during February.
Murray's rivals are competing in events around the globe at various times during the month.
Now it seems that the world No. 3 is dreaming of his long-odds chance to somehow regain the No. 2 ranking he once held for a fleeting moment four years ago - if he can defy the odds and win the title next month at Indian Wells.
Murray played the Indian Wells final in the Californian desert in 2009, a performance which gives his supporters hopes that the Scot somehow has it in him to produce more glory. A Murray dream title next month would leap-frog him over Roger Federer, a four-time champion who is defending the trophy in a fortnight.
Murray has been training privately in Florida with coach Ivan Lendl with the Scot determined to lift his game to challenge on the first Masters 1000 of the season, where he lost in the first round to Spain's Guillermo Garcia-Lopez a year ago.
The field at Indian Wells could be missing Rafael Nadal, with the fragile Spaniard waiting until the last month to make a decision on whether to step onto hard courts with hid still-dodgy knees. He has already promised to front up for a big-money exhibition in New York on March 3 but anything else is still up in the air.
