Nalbandian/Davydenko/Berdych/Gulbis/Nadal rock, the rest is more or less sucky.

Re: Who is the better hardcourter? Nadal or Murray?

If Nadal's new serve is actually his new serve, and not just a flukey trend that will show up every once in a while, then he might be marginally better than Murray on this surface where tactics are concerned.

Others will of course argue that results are results, which I agree with to a certain extent.

Murray. He's just unlucky that Federer isn't a dream matchup for him.

Less consistent though.

His serve speed has fluctuated wildly every year. No reason to believe the future will be any different.

Obviously Nadal. Murray won't have a claim here until he brings home some hardware.

Re: Who is the better hardcourter? Nadal or Murray?

Clearly Murray. By a considerable margin. But Nadal is mentally and physically stronger and has more power in his game. And that's what counts in majors. So if you asked me who would I take in a GS final, I would pick Rafa every time for those reasons alone. But at their best, Andy is the player whose game naturally translates to the surface and match-up with Nadal much better.

Nadal at the moment!

But Murray has a better all round.

OK, leave out majors. Just what results in 'minor' tournaments has Murray achieved that place him so much above Nadal? Indoors, I would agree, but outdoor hard? He hasn't won more MS.

Re: Who is the better hardcourter? Nadal or Murray?

Murray has better abilities on hard but weak mantality. Nadal has a mass-murderer instinct though which gave him 2 HC slams.

To the future!

Nishikori, Berankis, Raonic, Kuznetsov, Dimitrov, Coric

Murray by far. Nadal's 2 hard court slams are not an indication of hard court superiority.
