Re: Who is the most naturally talented player out of:

On his day, Djokovic is well ahead of Murray and slightly better than the talented Del Potro. It's not a coincidence that only one of the three hasn't won a slam.

Re: Who is the most naturally talented player out of:

It's between Djoker and Del po, but I'll have to tip the scale towards Del Po. He came, he conquered without winning a masters, he left the building.

I used to be your everyday average Joe. Then one day some guy told me I can do whatever I set my heart on. So I tried to fly, and failed. He then told me that there are limitations in life and that I should be more modest in my aspirations. So I robbed a convenience store and got arrested. He then told me not to take everything people say literally, and to use my own initiative. So I became a Trump supporter, and am politely asking you to leave my country.

Re: Who is the most naturally talented player out of:

natural talent doesnt equal results
for me Murray is the more talented out of the 3, it's whole another story what he chose to do with his game

Re: Who is the most naturally talented player out of:

Nole. But he's also a headcase at times. Sometimes he just lacks so much confidence.

I also think he DOES have some respiratory problems. Even if it's just severe allergies... that could be a major problem to deal with.

Nole!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Re: Who is the most naturally talented player out of:

DelPo.

His serve is so lethal, and his power hitting. Movement is very good too.

Re: Who is the most naturally talented player out of:

I know they do, but Murray is more talented.
He has game, can hit powerful shots, has variety, can volley very well, his slice is brilliant, he can change the pace, change defense into attack, his defensive skills are brilliant, he is fast, he can attack, his dropshots can be great, his lobs are amazing, his passing shots are superb.

Everything about Murray is great, apart from his second serve.

LET'S GO!!
SLAMS: 3 TITLES, 8 finals, 10 semi-finals, 9 quarter-finals...
WORLD TOUR FINALS: 1 TITLE, 3 semi-finals...
MASTERS: 14 TITLES, 7 finals, 12 semi-finals, 18 quarter-finals...

Re: Who is the most naturally talented player out of:

I do think Murray has the most variety in his game. Unfortunately, he doesn't always use it well.

Djokovic might be the best athlete of the group. He's really quick and super flexible.

Del Potro's biggest asset is his size and his ability to crush the ball from the baseline.

Of course, it all depends on how you define "natural talent," but I think Murray is probably the most capable of hitting any shot from anywhere on the court. So I'd probably give it to Murray, with Djokovic a close second.

Re: Who is the most naturally talented player out of:

I would say Murray, but simply because I think Nole has more shotmaking ability I'll give it to him, barely. Murray and Nole are about equal talent to me, Murray has more variety, more things in his toolbox, more overall game perhaps, they both are amazing athletes, but Nole has that ability to hit shots in an offensive way anywhere on the court that Murray is less capable of, and that's the difference.

Say what you will, but Murray's default game, what he loves doing is Counter punching, getting one more ball in play is his sweet spot. I will give credit that I think he may be more versitile than Djokovic, but his basic playing mode is simply inferior.

Djokovic standard play of is to be an agressive yet consistent baseliner. He likes to take to the opponent and take initiative whenever possible and can just as well play defensive and be consistent. This basic difference is what sets apart Djokovic from Murray.

So even though Murray has more shot options, he can slice better, junk ball, vary spin and speed of shots... all of this is not as important as their basic game modus operandi which for Murray is to react while Djokovic is to act.
