Who is better? Andy Murray, Yevgeny Kafelnikov, Jim Courier?

Why i am comparing

There was a debate in the Jim Courier thread about Andy Murray and Jim Courier. Kafelnikovs name also came up.
So i thought


Of Course there are many aspects to it.You could look at it from the Players Potential. You could look from the Career they had


I think Out of the three

Jim Courier would be the one. He had a great game and an even better mentality, atleast from 91 - 93

Kafelnikov . Highly talented Russian player. Had an all round game and graceful Forehand and backhand. Great player to watch when on form. ........ But had a smewhat weaker temperament

Andy Murray.. Brilliant Tactical player, has an all round game, Potentially on par with Djokovic and Nadal.........
But a Highly suspect Grand Slam Temperament... TILL NOW..

Who is your pick ? Discuss

Troll topic.

Mugray should win a slam before he's compared to any decent player.

Murray the mental midget doesnt even have a grand slam.
He is more in the league of weaklings like Davydonkey, Soderclown & Flake

The ATP deserves a better class of player, and I'm gonna give it to 'em - Djoker

RIP TENNIS JUNE 7, 2009


Do what must be done.
Do not hesitate.
Show no mercy.

Murray has to win a GS first before being able to be in the same room Kafelnikov and Courier are.

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

To the future!

Nishikori, Berankis, Raonic, Kuznetsov, Dimitrov, Coric

Murray could beat either of the other two easily..... but of course he could be assisted by them being out of match practice

I like Yevgeny overall personally, mainly because Courier was a mental midget

Re: Who is better? Andy Murray, Yevgeny Kafelnikov, Jim Courier?

I was debating this issue not so long ago in another thread, I wont bring the same arguments in again. Anyway, here is some interesting stats you could have in mind:

top 10 W/L porcentage for Murray vs some transitional champs:

Murray 0.570
Safin 0.500
Hewitt 0.459
Courrier 0.438
Kafelnikov 0.421
Chang 0.333

You can even include Agassi with 0.548, you should then know Murray is a very special talent..

In fact Murray got a top 10 record that is ahead of Djokovic, Agassi, Connors, Wilander and many other great legends of the game.

All things are subject to interpretation whichever interpretation prevails at a given time is a function of power and not truth.
