If Lendl won after losing 4 slam finals, then so can Murray

Re: Will Murray Ever Win A Set In A Grand Slam Final?

If you thought Mugray was depressed last year, wait till you see what happens now. He had the draw opened up when Nadal got injured and Olderer was taken out. He won 3 times in a row on hard courts against Djoker. And he got thrashed. Just shows what a mental midget he is and can't bring it to slams. He'll spiral out of top 10 soon enough. Noway, he's defending his lucky RG QF.

Re: Will Murray Ever Win A Set In A Grand Slam Final?

It always amazes me that people have such faith in Murray, even still. After seeing his weak showings against Fed in Grand Slams past, I pretty much lost faith. This just confirms it.

More power to you if you're a faithful fan, though.

I love tennis because of...

Andre Agassi (always #1)---Novak Djokovic ---Rafa Nadal---
Jo-Wilfried Tsonga---Gilles Simon---Tomas Berdych---David Nalbandian---Nico Almagro

Re: Will Murray Ever Win A Set In A Grand Slam Final?

Murray will need to play an absolute rookie in GS finals to win one. I guess he'd have to play Boredo or Wawrinka or another mug of that calibre.

Re: Will Murray Ever Win A Set In A Grand Slam Final?

He never looked convincing in the QF and SF of this tournament like he had in his other slam final appearances. He has the game, but mentally he is not strong enough at the moment. Maybe he should ask Lendl or Agassi for advice and how they overcame their porblems. But at least they had won sets in their 1st slam finals.

Do you think he would come back from 2 sets and a break vs Gasquet?

Re: Will Murray Ever Win A Set In A Grand Slam Final?

After the next slam final and 0-12 scoreline, the ITF should really buy him a set of wineglasses to go with his plate collection.
