I think it will. He has even more variety, can mix up spins better, has a better backhand, better touch at the net, better movement, and a better return. He will def. be an incredibly interesting player to watch, you just feel like he has endless options at his disposal.

Re: When Murray's game develops, will it be better than 2006 Federer's?

Competition is much higher now, so I doubt anyone will dominate like Fed did. Besides, it's far too early to make such judgements. Does he have the talent? Sure. Does he have the mental toughness and consistency? We'll have to wait and see.

True, I don't expect him to dominate like Federer. The competition is much tougher than Roddick, Safin, Hewitt.

This is just too much. I wonder what threads you guys will be making if Mugray wins tomorrow? Mugray's movement, net play, serve and forehand are nowhere to Federer's at his peak and never will be.

Of course this is another bandwagon thread but I always knew Muzza had the talent to be world #1. He'll never be as dominant as Federer but not because the competition is stronger. He's more like a Safin, he doesn't have the determination to dominate.

This isn't surprising when Nalbandian beat Nadal and Roger last year we saw a lot of "Fit dave is the best player ever" threads and don't forget after Djokobitch won the australien open all of a sudden he was going to win the golden slam.

just face it, beating Rafa on a hardcourt is not that big of a deal

Re: When Murray's game develops, will it be better than peak Federer's?

Now that Murray is 1-5 against Nadal this obviously means he is ready to take away his #1 crown and become the most dominant player in the history of tennis. I predict he will win every slam until at least 2013, when a new generation will come along who can hopefully challenge him.

I think this is really just stating the obvious though.

Murray will be #4 on Monday, and at worst, only 3960 points behind #1. Today the kid took a huge step towards cementing his GOAT status. If you still doubt, you're just a hater.

Re: When Murray's game develops, will it be better than peak Federer's?

this is definitely not a bandwagon thread.

nina's devotion to the ugly scot is well known.


well on topic, i dont think he will ever have a forehand as good as federer's. ever.

movement is good due to his good anticipation but he hasnt got the speed.

maybe im wrong because he always seems like in slow motion to me.

Sure her devotion is well known, but the content of the question makes it a bandwagon thread. Murray will be a greater player than Federer, take up golf and whoop Tiger Woods, and then start trying to beat Bolt in the 100 meters in athletics, managing a reasonably good percentage of wins and racking up several times in the 9.7s.

No offense or anything dude, I'm not the biggest Murray fan but have you actually ever watched a match of his?

The dude is super quick, maybe has the 2nd best defense behind Nadal. Even McEnroe and the other commentators were having a circle jerk over how quick he is, hence all the comparisons to Mecir "the big cat".

i was comparing him directly to the man once known as "ninja fed"

he does cover the court well, but i dont see any explosiveness in his game.
