Post Who has more weapons and versatility? Murray or Federer.

While watching the Murray-Nadal match I honestly got sick of all the British Eurospot commentators going "oo, ahh", "Murray has so many weapons this", "Murray has so many weapons that." Simon Reed esp. really was laying it on, but all the commentators were basically having a boner about Murray. Afterwards, I recall one of the commentators saying how Murray had the most weapons on tour.

Wait a minute, I though Federer was the master of versatility and multiple weapons. One year ago, everyone was still saying how Murray is a boring baseliner and while I am a Murray fan and he's improved immensely the idea that now he's even better than the World No. 1 in versatility and weapons seems like downright British media fanboy band wagoning.

It's like the British media at Wimbledon when they knew it was destiny for Murray to win his home slam. Then he loses to Roddick of all people. >_<

So who has more weapons? Murray or Federer.

EDIT, damn it spelled Murray wrong on the poll. (Obviously its not Murrat) forgive me guys can't edit it apparently.

Obviously Federer. Hell I got a better 2nd serve than Murray. Im sure many others just on this board do as well. Its pathetic. Murray is one way or the highway.. Push Push Push return return until his opponent makes a mistake

federer.

and to be fair, murray probably comes second in the top 10, imo. however he usually hides them and gives preference to his pushing style.

to be fair, he CAN play proper tennis, even if he rarely chooses to do so. his match against Nadal was a decent example. he was pushing his first serve at 140 km/h against Isner because he felt it was enough. and it was. so, good on him.
as far as the poll, its no contest and everyone knows it.

You have a better 2nd serve than Murray? Go and prove it on the pro tour then.

I'd bet you'd struggle to beat Judy Murray never mind Andy

Federer

Why does this question even need to be asked? Just because the commentators lose all sense of perspective when they push the TALK button on their microphone doesn't mean we must take them seriously.

Just one vote for Murray, hm.

So, Clydey, why exactly do you think Muzza is more versatile than Roger?

Re: Who has more weapons and versatility? Murray or Federer.

Federer is the most talented player of all time.....period. End this nonsense. His game is nothing but weopons. People who say Murray have a better return of serve are even wrong. Watch Federer play Roddick at the US Open quarters a few years ago. Federer has a Devastating return of serve. He just decides not to use it and pushes it back.

Regardless of what we all think.

Watch the British Eurosport commentators during the Final (Murray and Federer) and they will probably still give him all weapons and praises his brilliance..

Re: Who has more weapons and versatility? Murray or Federer.

Federer is better at using them, but Andy has just as much if not more than Roger. Murray just can meltdown and big matches and get way too defensive.

do you really consider Murray's FH and serve are up there with Roger's? not to mention the net coverage and other aspects

BH, ROS, is Muzza all the way, but he's nowhere as versatile as Roger is IMO

Rafael "The Matador of Spin" Nadal
Roger “The Magician of Precision” Federer
Del Potro, Ferrer, Haas, Zeballos
