You have to be kidding; beating Murray on clay is not a big scalp by any stretch of the imagination. Do you know how many titles Murray won on clay in his career? How many finals he reached? How many times he beat top 10 players on clay?

Says a lot about Ferrer's inaptitude on the big stage if that's the only thing you can bring to the table. There'd have been no 'messages' had Berdych beaten Murray on clay at RG, it'd have been a totally expected outcome.

MTF games titles:

Suicide Tennis (5): Wimbledon 2014, World Tour Finals 2015, Madrid 2015, Kuala Lumpur 2014 and Metz 2015 - 1 Slam, 1 WTF, 1 Masters 1000, 2 ATP 250; 2 finals lost

Fill-in-the-Draw (5): US Open 2014, Rotterdam 2013, Geneva 2015, Sydney 2016 and Buenos Aires 2016 - 1 Slam, 1 ATP 500 and 3 ATP 250

Tennis Tipping (3): Veneza and Todi 2014 (with vn01), Knoxville 2015 (with Redkop) - 3 challengers; 7 finals lost
