will andy murray win slam?

i doubt he can but i hope he can win a couple of slams. serve and aggressiveness are his only weakness imo. actually, he serve is not that bad but he is not aggressive enough. he has so much talent when he played aggressive but he chose to push the ball like a 5 year old girl. i think that the only thing that separates him and djokovic is his aggressiveness. it's not like murray lacks power. i've seen him hit winner like crazy when he bagel his opponent. what do u guys think?

Re: will andy murray win slam?

yes, I suppose Wimbledon. He has the suitable tennis to win on the green court. But he have to improve his serve percent

Re: will andy murray win slam?

Yes. It's a matter of time. I think he'll win his first slam in 2009 or 10 at the latest. This year I think he will make at least one good run to the semis in a slam.

Re: will andy murray win slam?

Maybe he will get lucky and win 1 at most.

Mentally too weak IMO.

Re: will andy murray win slam?

W'll see. He has enough game to do so, but we still don't know if he has enough consistency, stamina, mental toughness, to win 7 best of 5 matches.

He doesn't lack the weapons but so far he is still somewhat uncertain how to get the most out of them.

Back on topic: I feel Muzza surely has the talent to be able to win one (or even more) slam, but if anything, he's not there yet. Apart from the points already mentioned, he doesn't come across as mentally stable enough. But he's still young - and remember, Federer was regarded as a 'total headcase' in his early days, and see what's become of him. Not too bad I'd say.
So we just can't tell.

Let's see if he manages to take Marseille this week first, before starting any speculation on winning slams...

As far as I know, every new poster starts off with having 'red dots'.

Re: will andy murray win slam?

i think he can, but he needs some work to get to the level of challenging for grand slams.

Nope. Every new poster starts off without any dots (neither green nor red).
Obviously, 'yellowboy906' got bad reps just at the beginning of his/her career as a MTF poster.
