Even if that's true, it doesn't matter. Why? Because the rest of the players have been declining even worse. And there are no serious young players on the rise.
I agree his backhand is worse than in 2008, but forehand and serve are both vastly superior.
Murrays game is improving, its more difficult now to attack his second serve than its once was.
The forehand has also improved. In his match against nadull he hit more forehand winners than nadull.
Disagree about the serve it just has more mph on it but realistically his 1 serve percentage will drop.
This will be helpful against most players bar federer.
Fed couldn't return serve to save his life @ Wimbledon 08.Nadull's 1st serve was slower than now but he got more 1st serves in.
Now fed will get "more" looks at his second serve to exploit.
The law of nature,only the strong survive.
