That's like me saying "I'm the best tennis player in the world...just not when it comes to results, unfortunately". I still cannot decide if you are genuinely a Murray fan, or just a troll posting these moronic comments hoping to get a laugh. If you are a former then I'm sorry for you, if you are latter then you are doing a great job.

Sapeod is probably the biggest clown on this board (excuse my language) . I think that some guys come and post here not because they are interested in tennis but they want to get some sort of attention

Re: Dubai Final WWW: Roger Federer defeats Andrew Murray 7-5 6-4

Just curious, has Murray ever beaten 2 out of the trio of Djokovic/Nadal/Federer in a single tournament?

So, what you're saying is, if ALL the surfaces were very fast (giving advantage to Fed and others who prefer fast surfaces...big servers mainly), then the highest ranked player would TRULY be the best. That makes no sense. How would that be any different than having all the surfaces slow, like we have these days. What you would have then is simply the reverse of what we have today. That doesn't mean that quality of tennis is any better, or that there is more variety, or that players are more deserving of their ranking. Certain players would be at an advantage and others would struggle. Now you see long, grueling baseline play, and in that scenario you would see Karlovic-like matches with plenty of aces and serve and volleys. There would be no more variety than there is today.

They should have a good MIX of fast and slow surfaces, and then you could argue that highest ranked player is TRULY the best. However, even if they had a good mix of fast and slow surfaces, rankings wouldn't change much. Sure Nadal and Nole wouldn't be so far ahead of everyone else, but the Top 5 will still be ranked as they are now imo. USO is still pretty fast and Rafa and Nole won that tournament (Nole was also in 2 finals). FO is arguably faster than some hard courts and Nadal keeps on winning it. Dubai is one of the fastest and Nole won it 3 times in a row. Paris indoors is probably the fastest court on tour and Federer struggled every time he played there, only managing to get a win last year. Nole also won Paris indoors few years back. Like I said, rankings wouldn't change much even if we had a good mix of slow and fast surfaces. Only difference would be that Rafa and Nole wouldn't be so far ahead of everyone else, like they are now.

Sapeod is unrealistic about Murray but he's far from being one of the biggest clowns here.

Roger Federer

Re: Dubai Final WWW: Roger Federer defeats Andrew Murray 7-5 6-4

This is probably the best matchup between big 3 and half . Neither one guy can't exploit weaknesses of other guy, neither weapons of one guy can hurt the other guy badly . Fed can't get that much free points on first serve like against other guys, Murray isn't that uncomfortable with Fed's variety and Fed can't take or isn't taking advantage of Murray's weak second serve, on the other side Murray's variety also isn't uncomfortable for Fed and Murray's relatively flat shots aren't hurting Fed's BH . So this matchup doesn't have "stick to tactics regardless on everything" characteristic, it just came to who was in better mood on that day

Re: Dubai Final WWW: Roger Federer defeats Andrew Murray 7-5 6-4

Mugray can't serve himself out when it really matters...even nadal will do it at times better than Andy..This is the FINALS I'm talking about...not semi's or QF..of tournaments..
Fed is still mad about that Shanghai defeat..at a scary slow court..that's whay he didn't go there last year...so speed it up..boys and girls at Shanghai 1000!

DObaaar!!!

In 2011 we had to wait until November for the 2nd title of the season and now Roger spoiled us fans with a title within 2 weeks
Well done and keep it up

GM never fails to entertain. To suggest that Murray didn't care to win this match... Wasn't he the player who gave everything against Roger in a meaningless RR match at the WTF in 2008 and didn't had enough in the tank for the SF then?

Those players are professionals with high ambitions. They want to win and even more so against someone like Roger.

It's a tough task for any player to beat Berdych, Djokovic and Federer within 3 days.

Murray takes a lot of confidence with him nevertheless for the upcoming tournaments on a surface which suits his game more than the one in Dubai.
