The Emperor's new clothes...Is the 8th ranked Scot in definitive and permanent decline?
His defeat by the World number two Novak Djokovic at the Sony Open quarter final in Miami has made him slip from 6th to 8th in the world, his lowest ranking since 2008.
We won't find all of the answers in Miami. There will be the Davis Cup competition in Naples, Italy, a month off and then Madrid. A lot can happen from now until then, and Murray may find some answers and direction while languishing in clay-court limbo.
