I look at this season as Murray's (continuing?) breakout. He got a big gorilla off his back last year and I think he surpasses Federer this season.

Nadal is also a factor. At this point he's more resting than recovering. It's possible that he'll nearly sweep the clay season again and make a push for #2 later.
I'm skeptical of Nadal being able to maintain his health enough to make such a run at #2. Not completely discounting it though.
