Murray Can Win A Hard Court Slam

i think murray can win a hard court slam in the next year or 2 folks. he is not missing much. he is young enough and he looks quite driven. he has already made 2 hard court slam finals so the next step is possible.

here is what he needs to snatch a hard court slam in the next 2 years:

1. better fitness. he can take it another level.
2. better forehand. he can do it if he sets his mind to it.
3. better presence at the net which means better transition game day in and day out. no exceptions.
4. better 2nd serve


all thoughts and comments are welcome. thanks.

If he can make the final twice, I don't see why he can't win won.

Re: Murray Can Win A Hard Court Slam

of course he can. im not quite as convinced as a year ago though. i dont even think he needs to improve that much, just keep it together better on the big stage. and not be unfortunate enough come up against jesusfed in his next slam final.

Re: Murray Can Win A Hard Court Slam

no one is saying he can't reach a final, but he can't win is what we are saying. right now we need to see if he reaches another final if he can even win a set.

Because Nadal is getting better on HC, Del Potro sooner or later will be back & of course we have Federer & Djokovic too

Re: Murray Can Win A Hard Court Slam

Of course he can. Whether he will is another matter entirely.

It's not his game that's the problem. If he had Rafa's ability to stay in the present, I'm convinced he would already have a couple. As it is, far too many things distract him on court.

The pressure doesn't help either.

If you can reach two finals and win 5 MS titles, you can win a major. Saying he can't win a Grand Slam is as dumb as saying that Del Potro can't win a Masters Series title.

Re: Murray Can Win A Hard Court Slam

winning MS is not the same as winning grand slams

Re: Murray Can Win A Hard Court Slam

the focus shouldn't be on him winning a slam on hard court but the focus should be on him winning a slam period.He hasn't given himself a chance outside of Wimbledon or the USO so he's paying the price

Melania Trump who is not qualified to shine Michelle Obama's shoes might very well be the first semi-literate AND vapid First Lady of the US

Re: Murray Can Win A Hard Court Slam

He needs to do it soon though. It's not like he is getting old or anything, but every subsequent loss, especially another whooping in a final, will add up and hurt his confidence.

Re: Murray Can Win A Hard Court Slam

This is how you know Murray is done as a slam contender. When Murray was playing well at the AO and Wimbledon MTF was all threads declaring him done. Now his game is so pathetic the haters are guiltily making threads declaring him back in the mix

huh? RG is obviously hopeless, but he has given himself chance a plenty at AO.

Those are all players that can beat Murray, but Murray has proved he can maintain his form through the two weeks required to win a slam. That was my point: "2 weeks, best of 5" tournaments are not off limits to him, as you seem to think. This was a bad loss, but so was his loss to Cilic at the same time last year.

Since he won his first masters title, he's had a positive H2H with all the players you list. It is *possible* for him to beat them. Whether he will is another matter of course.

Re: Murray Can Win A Hard Court Slam

He has just as good a shot at Wimbledon I think, eventhough he is a better player on hard. He has been more consistant there and the competition is less.
