Murray is going to be stuck where he is forever until a young gun dethrones him

I don't know how satisfied Murray should be. Lets face it, hes been pretty stuck at this stage for the better part of 3-4 years now.. He hasn't really progressed as a player. Hes been stagnant. Unable to break the shackles of the other 3 guys. One of those guys always get the better of him damn near every time.

I see no difference into where Murray is now compared to where he was in 2009 or 2010 or even last year.

Murray is obviously better than last year, nothing revolutionary like Djokovic last year but he has shown progress. Wait and see, he will cause trouble to Djokovic/Nadal this year.

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

He overtook Federer last year for the No. 3 ranking.

It's only a matter of time. Murray is the true No. 3 right now and moving up.

One minute he's Murray 2.0, loses a match and he's back to Murray 0

So someone recently informed me that my sig was empty. Said I needed a life affirming motivational quote by a positive role model like Einstein or Oscar Wilde...

Great tip to stay fit and mobile: If you run up and down the stairs two steps at a time at least once daily, there will never come a time when you can't do it. Until of course one day you mistime a step, collapse and break all your bones... That would suck. But you had a good run.

People say Murray has had Fed's number but Fed has beaten him in 5 of their last 7 encounters. We all know how he performs against Djokovic and especially Nadal in slams. I hope he breaks out of the chains of chokery and wins one slam but not at the expense of Mr Fed.

Murray did improve as a player from last year. the thing is that there are Nole, Rog and Fed out there and they are just a bit better. I still think that Lendl is a very positive influence for Andy.

Isn't Murray No. 3 right now no? I thought he passed the old man last year and never looked back.

You had the last four months of last year blocked out from your memory?
